Franzé & Evans Italian Deli @ Redchurch Street

ブリックレーンの北、Redchurch Streetにあるイタリアン・デリ、Franzé & Evans。名前がイタリアンっぽくないので、メニューを見るまでイタリアンだとは気づかなかった。入口近くの大きな棚には、オリーブオイルやバルサミコ酢、パスタ、パッサータ(トマトを裏ごししたピューレ)等のイタリアの食品がきれいにディスプレイされ、デリカウンターのショーケースには、サラミやチーズ、そして手作りのパスタソースややケーキ類が並ぶ。パスタを中心に、イートインもテイクアウトもできる週変わりのランチメニューは、なかなかボリュームがあり、味も満足点。ステンレス製の椅子やオセロ風の白黒の床など、インテリアはちょっと時代遅れの感が否めないけれど、カジュアルに美味しくランチできるイタリアン・デリは、チェルシー&ケンジントンやロンドン西部には多いけれど、イースト・ロンドンにはあまりない貴重な存在。この辺りは、Pizza EastAlbion Cafe等、いろいろいいお店もあるので、どこでランチするか迷ってしまう(でもブリック・レーンのカレー屋は、客引きが押しが強くてしつこいし、材料や衛生状態等あんまり信用できなさそうなので行かない)。

Franzé & Evans is an Italian deli on Redchurch Street, just the north of Brick Lane. Their name doesn’t sound like Italian, so we didn’t recognize it is an Italian deli until we saw their menu. Italian groceries such as olive oils, balsamic vinegar, dry pasta, and tomato passata, are neatly displayed on the large black shelves, and you see salamis and cheese, as well as handmade pasta sauces and cakes, in the showcases at the deli counter. Weekly lunch menu that you can eat-in or take-out, mainly pasta dishes, is fairly large and good. Although the interior is a bit outdated, like silver steel chairs and black & white floor, but a casual+fast Italian eatery is rarity in East London, although there are many in the West. There are some nice places for lunch in the area, such as Pizza East and Albion Cafe, and sometimes we can’t decide where to go! (but we don’t go to curry houses in Brick Lane – their touters are pushy and naggy, and we are not sure if we can trust their hygiene and choice of ingredients…)
