Separated into four chapters, Institutions shines the spotlight on iconic dining establishments such as The River Cafe and The Wolesley whilst Place to be suggests sipping on speak-easy style cocktails at Dean Street Townhouse or feasting on pulled pork at the American-inspired barbecue joint Pitt Cue Co.
