No apologies for a very local posting. Things are moving in our neighbourhood. Tomorrow night the V&A is hosting a Tottenham Takeover. Tottenham is starting to be noticed. http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/f/friday-late/
Over the last six or seven years I’ve tried to keep a count of destination restaurants and pubs within our neighbourhoods. Places to take friends, to find a decent coffee.
This isn’t the ultimate list; I’ve pruned down my original 7 pages so please; fill in the gaps. I’ve concentrated on N15 and N17 and for this piece, left out the extras that are just over the borders.
Please comment, and add your suggestions.
Find a decent coffee; Bom Pecado Portuguese Café on
West Green Road is my favourite café.
Lovely coffee and natas that come with a little cinnamon shaker.
Find a decent restaurant. Miracle of miracles, there’s actually a restaurant that got runner up in the best cheap eats in the Observer Food Monthly Awards; Autograf on
West Green Road, N15 the Turnpike Lane end.
EIGHT Welcome our new Tottenham Green Market
It’s a travesty that Haringey doesn’t run a single street market in the borough. Not one. Ok so there are a couple of greengrocer stalls on Wood Green high street. Do tell me if I’ve missed anything else. What did they do with them all? I’m assuming that like other parts of
there were markets in place.
A trial market for the green is due to open 28th June.
Another place I’ve always means to check out but never got round to.
An intriguing mix of yoga, tango, poetry and Tai Chi.
Learn to sing!
Unearth an artist.
EuroArt studios on
Markfield Rd, open studios once a year worth attending
Mondays 7pm at El Botellon
Make green things grow
The award winning Living under one Sun run various courses
Hug a tree
The actual Seven Sisters; seven trees on the corner of
Broad Lane and the High Rd. Unmarked, no signs. The trees have been replanted several times over the years. You’ll have to go
to Bruce Castle Museum to find out
