The wood-fired oven is heart of Junction’s Annette Food Market, owned by the husband-and-wife team behind The Good Neighbour cafe next-door. Neapolitan-style pies, from traditional margherita to lesser-known iterations (potatoes, ’nduja, panna, rosemary) are served charred and aromatic, but a wide selection of modestly-priced sharing plates shouldn’t be overlooked: sweet roasted beets paired with soft burrata get a touch of chestnut puree, and super-thinly sliced octopus carpaccio is made lively with orange and salsa verde. The narrow wood-filled restaurant, almost half of which is consumed by bar, also makes itself welcome to those just wanting a drink: barrel-aged negonis are smoky while gin sours are kissed with rosemary and orange. The wine list, broken down with descriptions, is easy to navigate, echoing the comfortable atmosphere in general.
