Opened by Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver in 2003, St. John Bread and Wine combines a daily set menu with baked goods and artfully chosen wines.
Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver opened the original Smithfield location of St. John Bar and Restaurant in 1994, and to this day it’s considered to be one of London’s finest places to eat. In 2003, they opened the cleanly designed St. John Bread and Wine across the street from Spitalfields Market on Commercial Street, where they combined “nose-to-tail” dishes with an in-house bakery and carefully selected wines.
For St. John Bread and Wine, the pair wanted to create a less formal dining experience for visitors. Everything from the menu to the decor is centered around a minimalist aesthetic and approach. While the menu changes daily, it explores many underappreciated British ingredients, offering diners a true taste of traditional British culture.
