They're famed for having London's longest queue (and a recent visit confirmed, yes it is a very long wait at peak times) so hearing that Borough's fresh pasta restaurant Padella is opening a second restaurant is very good news.
If you haven't heard of them - here's a quick primer. Set up by Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda of Trullo in Islington, they offer a short menu of
There’s a bit of a shake up happening at Spelzini, the Italian cafe within the Forge and Co co-working space on Shoreditch High Street. During the day it is to remain Spelzini, offering, sandwiches, salads, and coffee, but from September 26 onwards it will now be known as Luigi’s Bar in the evenings.

What's the most popular restaurant in London? Or indeed the UK? We'd be hard pressed not to give that plaudit to Nando's which has a legion of fans (and yes, we've been known to pop in from time to time too). Those fans will be very pleased to hear about the Nando's summer pop-up coming to Shoreditch in August.

What makes a pub, the world's most ethical pub? Well according to The Green Vic, which is opening in Shoreditch and billing itself as just that, it's "where everything you buy and use has a positive environmental and social impact."
The pub is popping up for three months at Iron Bloom on Great Eastern Street. On their drinks list you'll find libations that, between them, support over 40 individual non-profit charities. So you can sup a pint of Brewgooder craft

Full-on Italian restaurant in Shoreditch
We do quite love Le Bun burgers so it's very good indeed to hear about their return to London. While it was possible to eat Le Bun burgers at the sadly departed Carte Blanche in London Fields, this will be a proper return for the French/American-inspired burgers by Andy Taylor.
This time, they're in
Normally you'd expect to find start-ups using street food as a way to test their food. But a new restaurant hitting London's street food scene already has that expertise in spades. Pied a Terre opened 28 years ago, but now the Michelin-starred restaurant's chef Asimakis Chaniotis and Pied à Terre Founder, David Moore are taking to the streets.
As first reported by trade title ...
Last night saw a new episode of Fred Sirieix's BBC show Million Pound Menu and London-based duo Scott & Lacey's Tiger Bites - serving up Asian fusion street food - came out top. And for their efforts, they won a slot at one of Deliveroo's kitchens. Which means that now, if you happen to live or work in East London, you can get their food delivered right to your door.
