Modern Jerusalem treats for pre/post-theatre and lone diner meals Despite appearances to the contrary, food from the Middle East has long had a presence in London from the Lebanese restaurants of Edgware Road to the kosher eateries of Golder’s Green.

Hateful restaurant website of the week – The Wapping Project

Insane. It’s a tad cheap and easy to take pot-shots at a restaurant that’s now closed for the second instalment in my occasional series highlighting truly hateful restaurant websites. The website for the now-defunct Wapping Project, which surprisingly is still up, is spectacularly awful though and an masterclass in how not to design a functional website. … Continue reading
