A real local institution is the star of our summer food and drink issue, out today. We go behind the scenes at Camden Town Brewery, and meet founder Jasper Cuppaidge, who tells us about his big plans for a revamped Wilkin Street Mews bar, and takeover of the former O’Reilly’s, which reopens next month.
We also chat to a range of other foodie locals, from Tufnell Park fishmonger Jonathan Norris to Pit Stop Cafe’s Carol Wong. Belsize Park restaurateur Zeta Mina tells us how she’s maintained Retsina as one of north London’s best-rated Greek dining spots, despite a recent tragedy; and elsewhere, we rope in a couple of eager teens to review Camden Market’s new Cereal Killer Cafe. Eating reviews include the Gipsy Queen, Horseshoe in Hampstead, and Map Studio Cafe.
You may have seen our smart new distribution units dotted about the area by now. Our biggest stockist is outside Phoenicia on Kentish Town Road – where hundreds are stocked and you’ll be able to grab a copy of the new free July issue at any time of day. Other main distribution units are at Truffles Deli in Dartmouth Park, and in Archway at the lovely Charlotte Despard pub. Plus about 100 other stockists listed below in the box.
And if you’re missing Gasholder on the reverse side, that’s because our King’s Cross title has grown up and become a standalone publication in its own right. The August issue is out now and free from these places.
