Don’t let the fact Two Lights sounds like a rejected X Factor boyband circa 2006 put you off. This slick Shoreditch opening is very much worth checking out. It’s got go-to east London date spot written all over it - tasty sharing plates, good drinks menu, and funky ceramic crockery. Crab chips, sardine katso, grouse sausage, and carrots with lardo were particular favourites of ours. Just don’t expect to be well-fed if you’re in a group. This is one of those sharing plates restaurants that doesn’t really suit more than three people. It’s much more of a ‘just you, me, and that brown butter ice cream’ type place.
