THE FISH & CHIP SHOP
189 Upper Street, N1 (020 3227 0979; thefishandchipshop.uk.com)
This new chippie in the heart of Islington is already bustling. But don’t expect a portion of cod in paper; this is a smart spot with antique tables and excellent cocktails — try the Pea Tini (£8) — as well as delicious fish dishes. The lobster butty comes with guacamole (£16). Or you can get
a chip butty with curry sauce.
