Either way I wish to have the crew behind zucca (and the cafe in the area before it) stay with us in our area. They created such an identity for Bermondsey as a great food destination and been connected to se1 for such a long time.
I lived in Angel over the course of gentrificaition when upper street was in a simliar transition I dont think anyone really cares for Upper Street now as a destination. I dont want to see my lovely Bermondsey go the same way.
