The duo behind the independent London wine bar 10 Cases has opened a small seafood restaurant around the corner in Covent Garden. Founders Will Palmer and Ian Campbell have named their new project after their mums, who happen to have the same maiden name, and designed the room to evoke seafood dinners of yore. The menu is scrawled on the wall daily. No time for dinner? Take a pew for a glass of Picpoul, a brown crab pissaladière and some potted shrimp croquettes (parsonslondon.co.uk).
