Chef Patrick Powell has been busy opening King’s Cross restaurant The Midland Grand Dining Room. Now Allegra, his restaurant in Stratford, has reopened its outside wraparound terrace and garden for summer, and his more casual offering at Happy Burger is back until the end of August. Diners can start with oysters before moving onto burgers, fried chicken and fries. For something more sophisticated, the tasting menu served indoors features seasonal dishes – current highlights include Cornish pollock crudo with tomato, barbecued mackerel with romesco sauce, and lamb faggots with smoked aubergine.
