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 shellfish restaurant in Marylebone that's decked out like a fancy diner (plush booths and sleek table seating). Crab is the speciality here (surprise, surprise), but there's also scallop ceviche, tuna tartare, oysters and more. Taking pride of place on the menu is the Red King Crab from the northern Atlantic Ocean: it's only caught once a year and they serve it on ice or baked to allow the flavours of the crab to shine through.
