    Signage is up and it looks about ready for opening. I think I spied a cafe area in there too. Looks promising.

    Well, I’ve just had the honour of becoming their first customer. Charming people, great space and very good Caravan coffee (and yes, I did pay for it).http://boroughwines.wordpress.com/2012/03/07/lentrepot-our-new-home-on-dalston-lane/Aparently you can buy a bottle of wine at retail price and then pay corkage on top to drink on the premises so as much a wine bar as cafe. Licensed til 11pm. A great addition to the area.”

    And also with a kitchen open from this weekend;http://boroughwines.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/franks-kitchen-opening-this-weekend-at-lentrepot/“(we’ll have) Charcuterie plates and then having the option of a main course  – keeping it simple. Steak Tartare salad good bread. Things that are good for sharing.. We are not a restaurant though – we aren’t trying to make a full menu. We don’t take bookings we are going to try and keep the maincourses for under a tenner..”@gavinredknap – you’ve complained of nowhere decent to eat in the area.”

    Just popped in. . The same refill gimmick as the Wilton Way shop. It’s a way to get cheap plonk, but your better off with a Jacobs Creek from the Tesco next door TBH.  Nice decor and friendly staff to be fair if u want to splash out and stay inside and pay corkage.

    Did you try the food. I love a good charcuterie plate. I see they often have pies. Hmm

    @janice I went in for food with @saladefolle it was good, nice plates to share whilst sipping wine. They didn’t have the full menu when we were there, but I’m sure we will pop back at some point soon.

    @janice and @ewebber I went back last saturday, the place was buzzing. Mostly had wine though, so can’t say about the menu. They’ve toned down the bare bulb lighting too, so it was a bit cosier. Really good addition to the area.

    i’ve now been twice. once i just had a coffee – decent not spectacular – not sure what coffee they use. last night went again for a full meal. it was almost full – good for a tuesday night. we had a charcuterie plate which at 7.00 was pretty small but enough for the two of us to nibble on. the cheese plate looked lovely but too much cheese for two of us i think… there were two main courses – braised lamb and a chicken stewed in cream. we went for the chicken. i think it was 10.00. it was very homey, like sitting in someone’s living room – unpretentious and maybe overpriced but it was decent. we then had the one dessert, poached pear with (crunchy) caramel and cream – 5.00 – nice but expected it to be warm. everything comes out of the fridge in plastic containers and is warmed on the stove or in a small convection oven. the chef stood at a table to the left of the bar and was busy all the time. i’d call it a pleasant and not overwhelming experience. great if you like wine (i didn’t have any but the prices were decent) and nibbles. for a meal if you just want to relax and not cook at home. don’t expect to feel full though. i’m glad entrepot is there. hackney needs more choices of places to eat.

    The Evening Standard / Independent food critic Grace Dent on L’entrepot;\L’entrepôt I’ll cut to the chase: your food is delicious but if you want to be a bistro then be one.
