From the team behind Peckham's Levan and Salon in Brixton comes Larry's. Located just minutes from Peckham Rye station, this is a restaurant centred on American specialities from morning to night. Expect all-day dining and classics that draw on Italian and Jewish delis in New York.

Taking over the space that was previously home to Brickhouse Bakery, this laidback eatery is named after NYC's pioneer of modern dance music DJ Larry Levan - just like Levan next door. Inspired by the influential New Yorker who "wrote the blueprint for what dance music would become," co-founder Nicholas Balfe is attempting to change the way that people view food and wine.

Start your day with coffee and pastries, before deli sandwiches take over for lunch. As for dinner, the kitchen will be serving up sharing plates from pig's head ragu with pappardelle and potato latkes to salt beef beignets and meaty schnitzel. When it comes to drinks, there's a regularly changing, concise drinks list with only a single beer and wine and a couple of cocktails.
