In August The Young Turks took over Franks Café, a tent-like cocktail bar on the roof of a Peckham car park. The venue and extensive menu had everybody talking from the get-go. Seated on long tables, each dish was brought out for several to share and this led to a buzzing atmosphere as remarks of delight were heard with each mouthful. What a fantastic evening in London, with the the Eye and Westminster glowing in the skyline, amicable conversation and sensational food.
