Every car park, rooftop and towpath at the more trendy end of London is filling up fast with food trucks, fancy cocktails and, if you're lucky, the odd art installation. Red Market, one of London's first pop-up street food markets (est. 2011) has now reopened for another season of alfresco revelry. Food this year includes tandoor-cooked rotis from the head chef of Whitechapel Punjabi restaurant Tayyabs and pizzas from Voodoo Ray's in Dalston. There will also be cocktails, DJ sets and a fake beach. What more could you wish for in the capital? Good weather, perhaps?

288-299 Old St, EC1V 9DP. Open Wed-Sat, 5pm-midnight.
A modern British carvery set within Victoria's Nova complex. The vibe here is swish: curved wooden benches swerve smoothly around a multicoloured feature wall, and the food comes on wooden boards, metal trays and in tin bowls. The menu involves meat in various forms (ribs, steak, burgers, whole roast chicken), with salmon posing a lighter alternative, and a variety of green beans, cous cous and avocado sides. The bar offers wine, beer, cider and cocktails.
