Just a quick post to introduce a new feature to the site, the relatively self-explanatory Best & Worst franchise. Basically, what I’m looking to do here is root out the very best – and the utmost worst – London has to offer in every category.
One of the key aims of this blog is to provide a resource for people coming to visit London. I want to get them out of the Aberdeen Angus Steak Houses and into the hidden gems, to make the world aware of what London has up its gastronomic sleeves, and while I want to celebrate the finest, I think we should shame the shitest.
So nominate the best, and the worst, places you’ve eaten Italian in the city. Keep it within Zones 1-3 if you can (while that grubby pizzeria in some side street of Beckenham might have been abysmal, there’s little chance of other Londoners / our visitors falling victim to it, unlike the emporium of stale bread and staler waiter’s breath I once stumbled upon in Leicester Square whose name fortunately evades me).
Feel free to nominate more than one, but please try and think of both good and bad. Once I have enough names to work out the winners, I’ll visit both and report back on the blog.
October update: This is a repost from January when I started £31.75. Thought now I actually have some readers it might be worth trying again…
