my new favorite restaurant in london, story, is at 3  redchurch street near labor and wait, and makes the best pizzas in wonderful combinations...I had roasted pumpkin with goats cheese and red onion, and a bottle of pear and apple cider...the setting is serene and designed with beautiful vintage furnishings in a whitewashed setting....everything from the beautiful graphics on kraft paper cards and menus to the open pizza oven kitchen make it a perfect destination to relax and indulge  on a rainy day in the collages of black + white portraits and inspirational photos that tell a story and  are on boards amidst the well-worn tables and natural appointments...can't wait to go back again in spring!

simple setting

love the simplicity of these hemmed natural linen placemats and napkins...with overscaled plates in tonal  colors,  slate placecards , and a warming fire, its a perfect kitchen setting for a cool fall supper...photograph by jeff mcnamara
