This is real talking-point food, even for old married couples who don’t talk much any more.

“This isn’t where James Cochran will stay — he’ll find a better room in a better location — but until then, search him out. Since my visit, he’s introduced a five-course tasting menu that includes the chicken, salmon and lamb, priced at £35. You’d be mad not to.”

Voted Fay Maschlers Top 10 restaurants of 2016.

“Excellent cooking at magically reasonable prices and, pace The Chicken Connoisseur, Jamaican jerk chicken that is “pengest munch" .”

The evening Standard

 

Your belly will not walk away disappointed.

“Well fear not with James Cochran EC3. Here, the menu to plate transition is seamless. From classics such as Kent coast seabass to eclectic eats such as Whitstable rock oysters with kimchi, we guarantee neither you or your belly will walk away disappointed .”

Inventive Sharing Plates in The City of London.

“If you’re looking for a slightly cooler, more exciting eating experience and fed up with suited and booted City dining – than James Cochran EC3 is the perfect evening escape and with some pretty fine food too which won’t cost you the earth. .”

The foodaholic

 

Book a table.

“Taking his classic training and combining it with brave, unashamedly bold dishes inspired by his half-Scottish, half-Caribbean roots, the young chef is fast becoming the enfant terrible of the London food scene .”

Odd location, dodgy decor but boy is the food good.

“Something about James Cochran means I recently ate fish for the first time in 21 years.”

New home.

“Plans to warm things up this Autumn with a brand new restaurant near Liverpool Street station.”

Hot-dinners

 

Sure smells like a hit.

“There are some kick-ass desserts to boot; Chocolate malt parfait, English raspberries with feuille de brick, and our favourite Rhubarb doughnuts.”

Seriously stylish.

“The plates are just the right size, as well as being seriously stylish, so you could conceivably eat, and insta, your way through the entire menu”

Supremely talented guy.

"There's no doubt that James Cochran is a supremely talented guy. Just take a look at the guys CV- former chef at 2*Michelin The Ledbury, before going it alone at Restaurant Fix, Hackney. Following on from the successful BYOC pop-up in Soho this Summer, James Cochran EC3 will be his permanent home in the City."

Top (Bevis) Marks 4/5*

“It might struggle to stand out in the square mile if it weren’t for two things: the quality of the cooking (high, consistently) and the prices (low, relatively). Sourcing all your produce from English suppliers is one thing, but JC’s imaginative approach – hat-tipping to his Jamaican-Scottish heritage – is something else.”

Cochran is stellar.

"Am I star-struck? Yes, and it's no accident that I have used the word star five times in this review. Cochran is stellar."

Playtime in the City-Fay Maschler- 4/5 stars.

"It might look like an IKEA storeroom, but Cochran's cooking – especially his fried chicken – earns four of Fay's stars."

Couldn't get enough of.

“Our favourite dish at the launch? The Jersey curd parfait, with roasted pineapple and sesame seeds. The result? An unusual yet refined dish that we couldn't get enough of."

BBC GOODFOOD

 

Evening that makes me appreciate London.

“The cocktails maybe the selling point, but to me the food is the best part.”

FOOD PORN QUEEN

 

Chow down on a delicious menu.

“All beautifully and carefully presented, full of flavour and wholly individual. It's no quirky for the sake of it (a pet peeve), but each dish shows personality, and more over, it shows Cochran isn't afraid to experiment with massive flavours either ”

DESIGN MY NIGHT

 

Going it alone.

“This is James third solo foray after launching a series of pop-ups called Camberwell Love and the Hackney based restaurant FIX. We caught up with Cochran to find out more.. ”

Pretty awesome dishes.

“I would advise booking a table if you are going to eat, the new kid on the block is going down a storm”
