Cornerstone – Hackney Wick

Contrary to popular belief Cornerstoneisn’t simply a seafood restaurant. That said, being a native of Cornwall and a Nathan Outlaw protégé, chef Tom Brown sure can cook… cure… and souse… his way around a fish. 


On the day we dined, there was a token meat dish on the menu too – a braised beef croquette – but this naturally came with an oyster mayonnaise. We ordered the entire menu, which came out well paced for sharing. We were a table of three (2 x normal people + 1 greedy fecker) but it would’ve still been an ample feast for four.
