London is jam-packed with great restaurants, cafés and food stalls, which is great, apart from when you’re trying to decide where to go. To prevent those last-minute ‘aaah where should we go?’ panics, Blue Crow Media is taking things back to basics and has devised this great little ‘Where to Eat Map’. It’s an actual map – on paper!
It’s a small, compact map of London that pinpoints some of the best places to eat in Farringdon, Borough, Shoreditch, Spitalfields, Covent Garden, Holborn, Mayfair, Marylebone, Soho, Fitzrovia, and Bloomsbury. There are 100 great restaurants to choose from, ranging from high-end haunts like Hutong and Duck & Waffle, to cheerfully cheap eats like Dishoom and MEATliquor. There’s a range of cuisines on there including Italian, American, Greek, Indian, Chinese, and plenty more for us adventurous types. It’s not an exhaustive list of what’s available (f you want that, come to our food section!), but that works to its advantage because it makes it way easier to decide.
The two-sided, pocket-size map made with recycled paper was put together by award-winning independent restaurant writer, Chris Pople.
Like the sound of that? There are bars, wine, beer, cycle and coffee maps too. Take a look at the full collection at bluecrowmedia.com.
