Bill’s Produce Store
Bill Collison’s original Sussex produce shop-and-café became such a hit that restaurant mogul Richard Caring (Le Caprice, The Ivy) took notice, and in 2010 the pair opened an outpost in London’s Covent Garden. The result: a charming two-floor restaurant and shop, with long, rustic wooden tables surrounded by rows of immaculately displayed provisions. While there’s all-day service, including tea and dinner, breakfast is undeniably the highlight, with British classics like Bubble and Squeak (a fried potato-and-cabbage cake) topped with fried eggs and ham.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
