1. Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack 21a Foley St, Fitzrovia, London, W1W 6DS (Fitzrovia)

In a Fitzrovia corner spot blessed with plentiful windows, the former popup's nautical decor -- rope walls, caged-brass light fittings, that sort of thing -- is centerpieced by a chalkboard map of England that pinpoints where exactly all the daily changing menu items were caught. Regular bounty includes whole brown Devon crab, pan-fried dabs w/ razor clams, and Scottish scallops w/ Yorkshire chorizo that'll cause a pleasant surprise when it goes by ee gums. Hit the cocktail bar to find the Nemo (gin/ sherry/ radish), a locally distilled vodka Mary w/ an oyster on top, and a Blacker Velvet: prosecco topped with porter & chocolate bitters -- though if you keep topping everything with chocolate, no one will need a map to find you.
