Launching this September, 65a is set to be a laid-back, French-inspired restaurant

A new restaurant is about to open in a prime Spitalfields position this month, as brasserie-style joint 65a is about to land on Brushfield Street. The new restaurant plans to centre around a French-inspired menu of uncomplicated classics, accompanied by a rosé-heavy wine list. Though 65a is a new concept, it comes from the same people behind the space’s previous resident, Coqbull: Irish-born entrepreneur Patrick Frawley (CEO of East London Pub Co.) and executive chef Maura Baxter (formerly head chef of Coqbull).

The heart of 65a’s menu will be its sharing plates, such as whole grilled native lobster and free-range rotisserie chicken, which will appear alongside a selection of smaller dishes and desserts. Expect the likes of:

  • French onion soup
  • Hand-dived coquilles St Jacques
  • Salade chèvre chaud
  • Fillet steak with Café de Paris butter
  • Burger à l’Américaine
  • Flourless gateau au chocolate
  • Crème brûlée
  • A daily changing cheese board

Wine-wise (as mentioned previously), 65a will spotlight rosé but they’ll also have a range of whites and reds sourced largely from France and the Mediterranean, respectively. And cocktail list will feature signatures such as the ‘Bloody Good Spritz!’ (honey tequila, oloroso sherry, blood orange sorbet & prosecco) and the ‘Green Mango Margarita’ (tequila, mezcal, caraway liqueur, green mango & tajin).

Spitalfields’ newest addition officially opens on Tuesday 12th September, but before then 65a will have a soft launch during which you can save 30% on your food bill – find out how to claim that deal below.
