With so many restaurants in London reopening for deliveries, it's hard to get noticed. But one Hackney spot has, we think, got quite an unusual proposition.
The Waterhouse Project opened its doors for the first time just pre-lockdown. Its owner, chef Gabriel Waterhouse (ex-Galvin La Chapelle) had just moved from a supperclub scenario, to what he was calling 'social fine dining' in a permanent restaurant in East

Before lockdown, the Pembury Tavern in Hackney had built up quite the reputation for its pizzas. Now, they're back and post-lockdown are launching as their own delivery pizza brand, Ace Pizza. It'll still be based in the pub, but the menu has been given something of an overhaul while the team have been away.
All the pizzas will be from 48hr cold-fermented dough and the menu includes:
Challenging though the lockdown has been, every now and again it delivers a ray of sunshine and this new opening in Hackney Wick is certainly it.

The good news is that Padella is going to be doing pasta deliveries from this weekend. The bad news is that, to begin with, you have to be in either Hackney or Islington to avail yourself of the service.

Despite the Prime Minister talking about a potential July opening for some hospitality businesses, most people suspect that pubs - particularly those without big beer gardens - will be among the last places to emerge from lockdown.

Their mobile pub will bring you a freshly poured pint direct to your door. Pint

They're starting with the Haggerston branch for now (which will be staffed by people who live close by), and will review how that goes before launching more branches.
This weekend, Hackney restaurant Cornerstone had its second birthday. But as they're currently closed for business, it was a bit of a quiet affair, marked only with a post on Instagram by chef and owner Tom Brown.
