David Paw grew up in Newcastle and spent six years of medical school just to learn one key lesson: don’t go to medical school. After a stint writing about art despite having no qualifications to do so, he’s now writing about restaurants of London for The Infatuation. We assume he is qualified to do that, though the only thing on his resume when we hired him was that he once ate 100 chicken wings in a single sitting. Then again, that’s all we really needed.
Pizza East is one of the best casual spots in Notting Hill for an easy dinner with a few friends.

Set up in a Haggerston cafe, TATA Eatery’s high end Chinese small plates sound mad, but they’re actually really good. Hit it for dinner or brunch.
Ever wanted to eat French food in a park? With Pique-Nique restaurant in Bermondsey, now you can. Be assured - it does not skimp on the butter.
At Henrietta, your dinner will have flowers on it, and you won't even be mad. This cool-as restaurant in Covent Garden also serves A+ cocktails.
Plenty of restaurants in Shoreditch have a gimmick, but Popolo doesn't need one. This place serves up incredible pastas and Spanish small plates.
Bar Termini Centrale is an excellent Italian espresso and cocktail bar next to Selfridges in Marylebone. It's perfect if you like the classics.
My Neighbours The Dumplings in Clapton is a dim sum parlour done East London stye. There’s a great bar and Chinese dishes, Totoro optional.
Don’t get lost wandering around Soho looking for a decent bar. The Infatuation Soho Bar Guide is here to sort you out.
We love Two Floors for being a no-nonsense bar in Soho, and there's a tiki bar in the basement as a bonus. Also excellent for outdoor drinks.
Basement Sate is an underground cocktail bar in Soho with great music, dessert and drink pairings, and an up-for-it crowd.
