Brockley restaurant renovations

La Lanterna, the often-overlooked Brockley Road restaurant is currently "closed for refurbishment". The decor is absolutely fine and was only refreshed less than two years ago, so we hope the refurbishment focuses on the kitchen.

Brocklies Nick and Kate have had contrasting experiences there, but the general consensus seems to be that it could do better. Let's hope this move means they're planning to raise their game.

Meanwhile, Long Time Cafe is being remodelled, so that the table seating is removed and greater emphasis is placed on takeaway customers. Their cooking is badly missed at BCHQ, so we're counting the days until it reopens.
