Regular readers will know I love all things Wes and now I can play out my fantasy of being in one of his movies by heading to the lovely Fika in Brick Lane. It's had a makeover à la Wes Anderson that will last until the end of August. Sit among Margot Tenenbaum's book collection and some Moonrise Kingdom love letters as you graze on a Tenenbaum's dinner: sliders with goat's cheese, the Beekeeping Society's Chicken, and – one I have yet to try – the Foxy Doughnut, a homemade doughnut with chicken liver pâté and apple inspired by Fantastic Mr Fox! The cocktails are all about playtime. Order The Life Aquatic (dill vodka, elderflower and lemonade) or The Inventory (Cognac, chilli caramel, Absolut vanilla and cotton candy) served in interesting receptacles...If only one could borrow Margot's wardrobe to lounge insouciantly at the bar..
