Does anyone have any idea what No. 17 around the corner from the Market Porter (Stoney Street) where someone has converted one of the original archways beneath the traintracks? Currently there is a carved "17" in the stone work and if you peak inside there is a nice loft, wood floors and track lighting.
Is it a new Jamie Oliver joint to compliment No. 15?
I really hope they take advantage of the location as the Borough Market is being revamped. Hopefully they add a nice outdoor dining area out the back of it too... (if it isn't someone's ritzy flat)
Oh, as someone with a bad head for figures, I hope there isn't a rash of restaurants known only by a number. "Could I have a table for 6 at 15 for 9:30? No? Try the 17 down the road? ok, how to get there? take the 78 bus".
On the other hand, why is Jamie Oliver's place called 15 when 2 of the original 15 dropped out? Or does 15 refer to the number of months you have to wait for a table?
