1. Platform 56 – 58 Tooley Street, London, SE1 2SZ

Started by two old cider-brewing buddies scribbling down plans on backs of tobacco packs, Platform sources many meats & veggies from a farm run by splendidly named co-owner Barnaby Butterfield, greatly assisting a mission to get food quickly from "gate to plate"; bedecked with wood floors, exposed brick walls, and huge windows, the two-floor affair's set under a London Bridge railway arch in a former strip club (they've kept the mirrorball), and everything's reclaimed, from the wooden furniture to a sound system and cctv once doomed to entertain the scrapyard.
