Bar Bruno in Wardour St, usefully
open into the evening with nice chalet-style booth seating, don't
be put off by the cruddy 70s logo nor the interminably long waits
to be served; the lost, lonely, legendary Lorelei in Bateman
St, usually deserted, always appealing... Soho's premiere rickety
utility Italian caff retreat; Rosa's in 12 Hanbury St
E1, the birthplace of music hall legend Bud Flanagan, this gem
is hidden round a blind corner near the Spitalfields market.
Well worth seeking out not only for the Flanagan shrine inside,
but also the ceiling details, behind-the-counter artifacts and
awesomely cheap food. Gilbert & George signed ephemera also!
