Newington Green is a part of Highbury (kind of) that’s changed a lot in recent years. By changed we mean it’s gone from quite grotty to quite great. Trattoria N16 is part of a little line of excellent restaurants and cafes looking out onto the green. It’s an all-day cafe situation that serves pretty decent wood fire pizzas amongst other smaller Italian plates and salad. There’s a very easy-going vibe which makes it an ideal spot to set up in for the day, or to use for a casual dinner in the evening.
