Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours
Neighbourhood: Soho
Description: Spuntino serves small plates like Polpo, but this independent restaurant takes its theme from downtown New York. The menu offers dishes including mac n' cheese, truffled egg toast, eggplant chips and pulled pork sliders. The site evokes 19th Century machine age Brooklyn.

Although smack in the middle of Soho, not a lot of people seem to know about this place. Spuntino is a cool hip bar setting. Menu is small (a good sign as it means they know what they do well) and there is one beer on draught (and it is GOLD). The burgers were excellent but the candied bacon and truffled scambled eggs were sublime. Bring a date or head out with a good friend and really enjoy the atmosphere. Great little space, will be back for sure.

A friend who runs London food tours took me here. It's more a dark bar than a restaurant. The bar is U shape and you grab a stool there are a few others scattered around the place but you mainly sit around the bar. The music is loud, playing some heavy metal the night I was there so interesting. Great food choices. They have Mac and cheese and sliders but we went veggie. With fried olives stuffed with anchovy, a pizzetta with thinly slices zucchini, mint and red pepper, a dandelion salad with fava beans and pecerino cheese. And a side of sautéed Italian kale (totally different from US). All delicious and I would order them again! The peanut butter and jelly ice cream sandwich which seems to be the house speciality. Good but I preferred the other dishes. With good wine choices and the prices were all good. It's popular so I suggest going late (we for there at 9:30) or earlier so you don't have to wait. But I would go...

I went here last night (a saturday) after hearing really good things about this restaurant. Didn't experience any queue, and got seats by the bar. I also found it pretty easy to find considering it doesn't even have a sign outside, and the entrance looks more like a closed down shop than a restaurant.
Had the peanut butter and jelly dessert thing (sorry can't remember exact name) and some g&t's. The dessert was so good! would go back just for that!

As we were on our way to pick up theater tickets, we found this hole in the wall with really good mac and cheese and icy ale. A quick stop but we'll be back!

This restaurant is teeny with "28 stools and a popcorn machine" as the website says. You sit around the big square bar shoulder to shoulder with everyone else, with free popcorn & hot salt to whet your appetite.

To start we had the fried chicken (beautiful - I'm usually not into wings but there was loads of meat on them, the seasoning tasted vaguely Asian inspired, delicious).

Then we shared the four sliders; lamb, beef, prawn and pulled pork respectively. They were all very good, the beef in particular was great, with well though out garnishes and sauces. Didn't have room for dessert but I hear the PBJ sandwich is the thing to get! Will have to go back for one another time.

We drank frosty little half pint pitchers of Camden Pale Ale which is a great beer.

Even though you're sat right in front of the staff at all times, they manage very well to avoid hovering, and are efficient, cheery and unobtrusive. We arrived fairly early when it was half full, but there was a 10 person queue by the time we left.

Would definitely visit again, great for when you're starving after work! Great music as well :) Look out for the excellent "Top 10 Bruce Springsteen Songs" graffiti in the girls' loos...
