While London hospitality continues to recover from the lingering effects of lockdown, one of the few silver linings left in the pandemic's wake is the renewed appreciation for neighbourhood, or 'destination', restaurants. With many people still working from home rather than heading into the West End or City, the door is open for independent new ventures to stake their claim in more residential districts.
Accordingly, a handful of intriguing propositions have recently opened across the capital - one such being Turul Project in Haringey, north London. Located next to Turnpike Lane tube, it's the first permanent outpost for what started out as a pop-up and series of supper clubs. The menu champions Hungarian fare - but forget traditional stews or soups, this is Hungarian done with serious panache.
