EAT WELL HERE: Bodega Rita’s
Bodega Rita’s opened a sandwich and deli shop in Clerkenwell last week. Diners can expect a range of American-style subs, including The Tony, filled with pesto, prosciutto, spiced salami, smoked cheese, pickled salad and cheese dust. The King Banh Mi is a vegan take on a Vietnamese baguette with roasted oyster mushrooms, while The Second City promises fennel roast pork belly and crackling, seasoned greens, spicy mayo, crispy shallots, parmesan and lemon oil.

GET THE DRINKS IN: Funkidory
Funkidory in Peckham has just reopened its doors with a new look.

The interiors have been upgraded, with a cool new bar and seating area. Ideal for Friday night drinks, get the beers in, browse the vinyl collection, and take home a bottle of wine to enjoy over the weekend.
