Not So Far East Guide

I thought it was about time I updated my guide to London that I give to mates passing through town. Thought it was about time I did a specialised East London update (after all I spend far to much time in).

Maureen Paley, Laura Bartlett and Herald St - the trio on Herald St
Chisenhale Gallery, 64 Chisenhale Rd, E3
SPACE, 129-131 Mare St, E8
Cell Project Space, 258 Cambridge Heath Rd, E8
Also: Seventeen Gallery, French Riviera, Welcome to Corfu, Kate MacGarryEighty1Almanac

Allpress, 58 Redchurch St, E2 - but ask for one shot as this tasty rocket fuel guarantees sleepless nights

Wiltons, 63 Wilton Way, E8

Lardo, 197 Richmond Rd, E8 - great Italian
Viet Grill, 58 Kingsland Rd, E2 - the best of the Vietnamese strip of Kingsland Road
