James Lowe and John Ogier, the team behind the Michelin-starred, critically acclaimed Lyle’s restaurant in Shoreditch, are opening a second site. Called Flor, the wine bar and bakery - in Borough Market - has been inspired by the buvettes of Paris and the pintxos bars of San Sebastian. In-house baked pastries will be available in the morning, with sandwiches served lunchtimes and flatbreads available for dinner. All the baked goods will be made in-house, using British wheat milled at Lyle’s.
