Hackney MP Diane Abbott, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and his wife cut the ribbon at the opening of Acoustic Brasserie’s second branch on Stoke Newington Church Street. Corbyn and his wife Laura are regular customers at Acoustic’s original Newington Green location which has been open for 8 years. “We can’t start a Labour Party canvassing session in Mildmay without going to Acoustic first. Sometimes… we stay in Acoustic!” said Corbyn at the opening.
The couple even enjoyed a meal there on the night of the last general election. The Mediterranean joint’s owners Sefika Erdal and Adil Kolcak who describe their menu as “hearty and healthy” decided to open another branch on Church Street because of the many customers coming to their Newington Green branch from Stoke Newington.
