LOCALVORE: AUGUSTUS HARRIS (WC2B)
I'LL confess that Covent Garden isn't my go-to-place for food in London but a recent discovery of Augustus Harris has me changing my mind. This cafe/ alimentari is modelled on a classic Venetian bacaro - a local neighbourhood bar specialising in midday cicheti, spuntini and crostini. The menu offers an appetising selection of Italian little and larger bites, perfect for a light lunch or pre-dinner aperitif. Open to late, it is perfect meeting place for a intimate cocktail and during the day, a haven against the crowds of Covent Garden. As for Augustus Harris, he earned his fame as one of the theatre heroes of Drury Lane. All in all, it's the perfect homage to the father of modern Pantomine.
