A markedly different proposition to many of its neighbours when it arrived in the city’s financial centre, INDIE still attracts a different – but still happening – crowd, thanks to its unique sounds and hipster vibe. It’s also, generally, packed. A cracking menu helps. Its mains are largely of an Italian persuasion, risottos (particularly excellent), gnocchi and tagliata sitting alongside salmon, sea bream and more. While its starters are a mix of Spanish (pimientos de Padron), Peruvian (there are some fine ceviches) and Japanese – the standout for us is the spicy raw tuna on crispy rice cubes, a perfect accompaniment to many of the broad range of mixed drinks. The soundtrack matches the décor, meanwhile, old school funk, soul and pop bouncing off the speaker-dotted walls to create a distinct vibe of New York’s Soho. You’ll find it just upstairs from Gaucho.
