Lupins / London
The most quintessentially British food is the kind that ruthlessly steals the best bits from other nations’ own cuisine. The British restaurant Lupins – now open in Flat Iron Square – has absolutely no intention of stopping that tradition. Set in one of the brick railway arches between London Bridge and Southwark, it features old-fashioned British food with a globally inspired twist. The space itself is light and airy, with cushion-laden pastel pink banquette seating hugging the white walls.
