At the weekend we enjoyed a lovely lunch at the nearest possible restaurant to our house. Campania on Columbia Road is open for breakfast and lunch every day and they serve wonderful, simple Italian dishes and good wines to go with them. We chose a fennel and anchovy salad, some grilled aubergine with amazing buffalo mozzarella and a small salami platter. Perfect flavours for such a lovely spring day.
And these days this is one of the best places I know for people watching. Looking out of the large window facing the street is like watching a big screen, with young interesting looking people constantly strolling by. Fashion girls with clumpy shoes and tiny hotpants, vintage loving men with carefully managed hair styles, a proper old style punk, a very beautiful and famous young actress with rocker boyfriend in tow. A very nice way to spend an afternoon.
