Lately, Belatedly

And again.

It's been just over a month since my last post.

Summer just seems to slip away, sweeping you up in its alternately blissfully golden and oppressively atmospheric stream of activity - the season seems constantly around the bend until it's already gone.

This is especially true of a London summer, where the weather just won't cooperate, and so summer isn't summer without effort. London's already-overwhelming offerings treble and chasing one-off or seasonal happenings, downpour or no, can easily become a full-time pursuit. In trying to balance the crazy calendar and some semblance of normalcy, time has trickled on.

So - in lieu of more words, sometimes as oppressive as the close summer air -  a month in images:

The set of a lifetime from The Maccabees:


Hitting up the Pitt Cue trailer, now back on Southbank (hellooo, "mac'n'cini"):



Lucy Chip's ridiculously-rich soft-shell special "The Life Aquatic Burger":


Brunch at the inventive and always-delicious The Modern Pantry:



Saturday morning spent canal-side at Towpath:



A minimal meal Upstairs at the Ten Bells (#nofilter):


 THE picnic at Henley:


Jessica Rankin's filigree at the White Cube, Hoxton Square:


A long-overdue return to Polpo:


A (few) great meal(s!) at the ever-brilliant Brawn:




A morning wander through Hackney City Farm:


Jewel-like smoked salmon from Hansen + Lydersen at Broadway Market:


Saturday-morning-in-a-bowl at La Bouche:


And a reluctant egg at The Lansdowne:


Fin.

(For now).
