From the introduction:
"As a destination for art and design, the capital's standing has never been higher, while the boldness and integrity of its restaurants and cafés now equal that of its great transatlantic rival, New York. The Big Smoke may not be a 24-hour playground yet, but for all its fickleness, provocations and cliques, London is a magnificent place to be. The challenge is plotting a course through it all. And that is where we come in."
