About Time: This WeekendBy Angelica Malin
Here at About Time, we don’t like to bombard you with information. Your time is precious, so quit trawling through the internet for inspiration, here’s two things it’s simply about time you tried this weekend:
1. Saturday – Brixton Diner with The Pickled Fork
What: Expect the best of British with an American infusion with this latest East London supper club. Two creative young chefs, Chris Griffett and Alex Motture, are behind The Brixton Diner – a pop-up on Coldharbour Lane which will be serving American-inspired food in true Brixton style. The food is sourced from local markets, and you can expect an amazing 3-course meal for only £20. Think buffalo wings with British condiments like Shropshire Blue and South Devon chilli sauce, the Brixton Bap with wild garlic slaw, and a peanut butter dessert with a Hobnob base.
