If you are a foodie with a particular taste for Caribbean food, you will have already mastered London’s offering. As I remember correctly, Cottons was the most hyped Caribbean restaurant of my generation but the difference this chain has its authenticity and great food which unfortunately cannot be said for the likes of its fine dining competitors (of Caribbean food of course)
Somehow this business, although being bought from its original founder has kept the spirit of the Caribbean well and truly alive when many had disregarded the concept in favour of other popular cuisines of the moment.
Relaunching themselves as the UK’s top, fine dining, Caribbean restaurant, Cottons have now made themselves available to the gentri… I mean, the Shoreditch crowd.
With a prime spot on one of Shoreditch’s most valued roads, Cottons has made Curtain Road their home and I was delighted to review the new location for chloepierre.com alongside a number of London Food Bloggers.
One cannot be mad for the Cottons team for thinking I was an absolute novice when it comes to everything West Indian but they soon realised, I wasn’t the one who needed educating. Instead, I enjoyed the very best of what my culture has to offer the British audience, and delighted in it.
Here’s what I thought…
