Compared to, say, tigers, leopards are massively adaptable: they’ll eat anything – even, at a push, human beings. Conservationist Rom Whitaker helms the piece even-handedly – clearly, his vocation puts him on the side of nature, but he can also understand the perfectly reasonable fears that drive human reactions to big cats. A gently interesting film.
This informal Italian café just across from Camden Road station proves a popular spot for local sorts - and not just for its ability to turn its hand to classy cocktails when night falls. It's all about an authentic Italian feel, from the ebullient, enthusiastic staff to the regional produce and the traditional, homemade food. Dishes range from bruschetta, platters of Italian meats and cheeses and ciabatta sandwiches to risottos, spaghetti carbonara, lasagne with burrata, paccheri pasta with red cabbage and polipo grigliato with roasted potatoes. Cocktails are made with flair and served alongside a wine list dominated by bottles from Italy.
Venue says: “La piccola gastronomia, integrating small and sharable portions with good wine, preceded or followed by a cocktail and/or digestive.”
