The Chancellors, 25 Crisp Rd, London W6 9RL
Aptly named Crisp is hidden away in a West London local’s pub. Forget the sloppy Neapolitan we’ve all become accustomed to, this is the New York style pie that has been missing from the London scene.
The Standard, 10th Floor, 10 Argyle St, London WC1H 8EG
Bristolian legend, Michelin-starred, Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’ Mexican twist on Spanish cuisine serves up elevated, classic tapas and impressive tacos. Highlights: runny tortilla and bread lathered in olive oil, dipped in marinated red pepper.
8 Broadwick St, London W1F 8HW
The Israeli institution has landed in London, cauliflowers in tow. Hands down the best pittas this side of Tel Aviv. Don’t be alarmed by the wild concoctions you see on their Comic Sans-emblazoned menu. Pitta fillings such as fish & chips, cottage pie and spaghetti bolognese are the new norm. Order the folded cheeseburger pitta.
55 Great Portland St, London W1W 7LQ
Think classic London pub, done right. The George is where you need to find yourself for a post-work pint or a slap up meal. Pub classics on a whole other level. You’ve never tasted a scotch egg quite like this.
