At London Best Fish & Chip, a family of fishmongers works behind the scenes to dish up a menu of fresh Neptunian nibbles, from crispy fried fish and golden chips to oysters, prawns, scallops, and whole crabs. Entrees scuttle up next to sides such as hushpuppies, coleslaw, and potstickers while salmon fillets and chicken strips nest between pieces of bread. Guests nosh on oceanic delights in the restaurant's casual dining room, where doodled napkins cling to the walls like barnacles and nautical knickknacks sing sea shanties.
Sugar Lillie Bakery’s fastidious bakers combine fresh ingredients to create a host of delectable baked goods from scratch. The flaky texture of coconut macaroons is the bakery’s specialty, their nugget shapes dipped in chocolate, mixed with toasted pecans, or delivered plain and unadulterated. Custom cakes also showcase their talents, with buttercream frosting styled to pay homage to animals, birthday wishes, pendants, and fond remembrances of favorite hats. The bakery also gladly fixes up customers with breakfast pastries, cookies, brownies, pies, and tarts, which can all be enjoyed in a relaxing fashion with coffee on the patio.
Inspired by the fresh crepes that sizzle on griddles across France, Alma and Edi Zildzo form CrepeTown Cafe & Grill’s from-scratch batter into thin pancakes and fill them with classic sweet and savory fillings culled from local farmers. Though crepe architects specialize in classic French fixings such as béchamel and gruyère cheese, North American flourishes such as ahi steak, chipotle salsa, and the occasional bald-eagle tear also congregate within the crepe’s fluffy confines. Customers can complement their edible envelopes with sips from gourmet coffee drinks made at the espresso bar and sweet treats such as pastries and ice cream.
