The secret is out. Bermondsey Street is London's "newest" food destination. This unassuming part of SE1 has been slowly attracting the attention it deserves with its great line-up of independent cafes and restaurants like tapas cafe, José, (founded former co-founder and head chef of Brindisa, José Pizarro, ) and Casse-Croûte, an all-day French bistro. Yet Bermondsey Street has always been "there", having sat happily on its own following the area's redevelopment in the 1980s. Great pubs like The Woolpack, cafes like Fuckoffee, and surrounding design studios were for those who either lived or worked in the area. The vibe was local and always very good. However with the arrival of White Cube and the development of Maltby Street Market and Spa Terminus, people are discovering SE1 and it's a good thing. With so much to offer from its industrial and unique public architecture to its markets and people, it's definitely our B destination.
