The excellent - and expanding - group of Leon restaurants welcome a new member to the family with a branch on Old Compton Street. The food is served in shoots, like McDonald's, so there's hardly any waiting, and it's neatly wrapped for consumption on the move. The difference comes when you open the box, rather than greasy burgers you get grilled chicken wraps, slathered in aioli; spicey, succulent kebabs spiked with chilli; Moroccan meatballs, scented faintly with cumin and served in a thick tomato ragu. Of course, there's so much more than meat, including plenty of veggie options too, like the extra-healthy salads made with Super Foods (broccoli, rocket, sprouts etc). All the food at Leon's is seasonal, well-sourced and, where possible, local. It's not totally organic but it's all free-range, which means you get well-flavoured food that tastes like it should. Whether its a full meal you're after, or just a juice, this place will put a smile on your face. Also open in the evenings too, with an excellent selection of wine.
