Dirty Bones Shoreditch: New York style diner popular with Millennials - and kids

Dirty Bones Shoreditch is evidently a hit with the young millennial crowd - the place was rammed with parties of the young 20-somethings when we went for Sunday brunch. But as my three children testified, it can also be a big hit for families too.
The New York style diner in Bethnal Green Road has high ceilings, white distressed wooden panels and the impression of peeling white paint on the wall. You can imagine the heavy patterns and colours it might have had in its previous incarnation as an East End boozer a few decades ago - but its embossed wallpaper has now been painted white, there’s plush purple velvet seating and the general feel now is elegant and spacious.
There’s a loud buzz of chatter above the loud, funky soul and hip-hop soundtrack. Weekend brunch is served from 10am until 4pm. With a mélange of my two favourite foods - guacamole and hollandaise sauce - the Shoreditch crumpets (£8.50) were a huge hit for me, and my kids were keen too. Other toppings include short rib and beetroot-cured salmon.
I almost didn’t order the Mac Daddy burger (£11) when I realised it came with macaroni cheese. I wasn’t too keen on the idea of pasta in my burger. But we thought we’d give it a whirl and it was pretty nice combination, with a barbeque rib thrown in for good measure.
Sides of fries with two fried eggs on top, wild mushrooms, Mac and cheese, and beans in a rib kind of sauce meant my kids were too stuffed to move when it came to leaving time.

Some of the millenials were probably making the most of the Boozy Brunch flight deal – where you choose four alcoholic drinks from a Lexy cocktail, Dirty Mary, spiked iced coffee or prosecco for £19.
My kids were more than happy with their Oreo milkshakes (£6).
