There’s no better London neighbourhood on a proper summer’s day than Primrose Hill. But when summer fails to show up, that doesn’t mean you should rule out a visit to NW1. Especially when you consider that it’s home to one of north London’s most popular restaurants, Lemonia. Though it might not be the best Greek restaurant in town, it’s probably the happiest. You get all the normal stuff here: hot mezze, cold mezze, and a selection of meat and fish cooked on charcoal grills, however, it’s the spirit of the place that makes it a forever summer spot. The staff are gregarious and fun, it’s always rammed, and the space itself - particularly the back room - feels like the memory you have of a sunbaked Mediterranean courtyard. It’s the perfect place for ridding yourself of the perma-gloom of a British summer.
