Lindsay Porter Opens London Local

Lindsay Porter has gone back to her British roots by opening London Local, a modern bistro serving olde tyme favourites like bangers and mash, blood pudding, Welsh rarebit, fish and chips, and other hearty pub staples.

The space (previously Cured) has been appropriately British-ized without going overboard. It’s a proper place to stop for a pint or a plate and certainly welcomed on the south side where restaurant chains abound.
