CONRANS’ CAFE: Albion is a very old name for Great Britain, and it’s also the moniker Terence and Vicki Conran have given their new East London cafe. Albion is part of Boundary, a soon-to-open clutch of bars, eateries — and 17 guest bedrooms — housed in a converted Victorian warehouse in Shoreditch. Albion’s interior is stark and Scandinavian-inspired, with white-tiled walls, long communal wooden tables and an open kitchen with quirky, homely touches like hand-knitted tea cozies. The food is hearty British fare, including fish and chips, shepherd’s pie and blackberry crumble. It’s open from 8 a.m. until midnight daily.
Albion at Boundary 2-4 Boundary Street, E2 7JE; Tel.: +44-207-729-1051

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
