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?

An authentic Italian restaurant south of the river in Lee, run by second generation Italian Enzo Masiello, who named the place after his father Luciano. The kitchen serves up stone-baked pizzas, risotto and freshly made pasta in dishes such as seafood linguine and sausage and mushroom casarecce. A good selection of Italian wines can be enjoyed here, or next door in the Luciano bar, which also serves food throughout the day.
