Review – Milkmade, E20 1AS

NOTE: Hi all, Milkmade has now closed, boo. But it has reopened as Village Vanguard! Yay! Read my review of Village Vanguard here.


I love a new opening Dear Reader and this one is about as fresh as it gets. Milkmade is East Village’s new American-style diner set in an unusual industrial space, serving up fried chicken and waffles and unique cocktails.

Tomtom Mess Hall. Sounds cute, doesn’t it? It sounds like a little feasting venue, pleasantly buzzy and fit for a quick bite during a busy lunch hour. And it is, sort of.

To celebrate this great social media moment I decided to take myself and my lovely friend Lucy to Cicchetti Covent Garden, which is owned by the San Carlo Group which Mr Zilli consults for.
