ST. JOHN BREAD and WINE opened across the street from London's Spitalfields Market in May 2003. Initially, the idea was to find a home for our bakery operations. However, it had outgrown the original Smithfield restaurant to include a simple food offering and possible wine shop.
As plans for the former bank developed, and as people expressed interest, it became apparent that there was a desire for a restaurant. Therefore, the Commercial Street premises became the dining room, wine and bakery shop as it now is.
