Simon Livingstone now has a finger in every pie when it comes to the restaurant scene, with the opening of his latest addition to an ever growing clan of cafés and restaurants; ‘sardine tin’.
It is a small, understated eatery/drinkery overlooking the parklands, located just across from Simon’s french bistro ‘Piaf’. Serving tapas size meals and offering a select list of wines, sardine tin is a great place to have a drink and tasty morsel, or conveniently, a great place to perch while waiting for your table at the ever busy Piaf.
We dined there on its 3rd day, and it was already a buzzing place. We tried a few dishes including the chorizos with potato and some daily specials; mushroom and truffle soup and lamb koftas. In keeping with its name, the small bar serves a daily sardine special, and presents your change in a sardine tin!
We’ll definitely be back, thanks Simon!
