Mark Hix's 'Tramshed' in Shoreditch is where it is at -- an attempted citizen's arrest of Tony Blair which 'hit' the newspapers .
The restaurant is famous for its huge Damian Hirst floating above the tables. It has a chicken dish in which the bird is plunged head down into a plate of chips, its legs trussed - delicious (and you can take the carcass home for your dogs or to make soup).
The night I was taken to dine there - at the very long bar - perched on a stool, a white girl in a backless dress, with a mass of blonde hair, and a stunning black girl were kissing passionately. Very nice with a cocktail.
