There's a new street food kid on the block – and it's on a roof

West Londoners – no longer are you left in the cold when it comes to the alfresco street-food scene. Pergola on the Roof, once the BBC Television Centre car park, now a 170-foot-high terrace, has just opened to the public, serving restaurant-worthy grub from the chefs at Salt Yard, LeCoq, Rabbit and Patty & Bun. Book ahead with a group of your most generous mates and negotiate a sharing policy – you will want to try everything (broad bean hummus from Rabbit and the dry aged beef bocadillo from Salt Yard were well worth their salt). While sun is no guarantee, eating, drinking and merrymaking are a given. And if it rains, there’s always the flowery retractable roof. See you all at the bar.
