Bar Italia without doubt. Probably the only genuine espresso in town! After what 50 years? Anyway since the closing of Les Enfants Terribles. Walked past the site Saturday - almost brought tears - and none of the buildings were listed? Somebody must have taken a nice bribe. Pevsner must never get any rest in his grave!
It certainly beats anything that Starbucks or Costa could ever offer, in taste and surroundings! It still guts me too, to see such iconic buildings go under or be demolished in the name of 'progress'. Which building in Soho do you most lament the demise of in Soho would you say? I must admit, I'm always saddened when I walk past the old Astoria - had many a good night there!
I'm really hoping that I can at least get a bank of photography of all the buildings and businesses that have long since gone due to the Crossrail development in Soho, so at the very least there they are gone but not forgotten. So anyone who has any, get them up on the site!
