City Eats

Aby Dunsby has been eating her way through the City for the past year – and she can thank her employer Square Mile magazine for the slow but sure expansion of her waistline. She’d be betraying her Aby Dunsbymamma if she didn’t say her favourite cuisine is Italian (she could scoff pasta for England. And Italy too, probably), while she will never tire of drinking Margaritas, even though the frequency of her hangovers tells her she should. Aby Dunsby is a staff writer at Square Mile magazine, where she writes about everything from London’s coolest new immersive events to style and travel – and food and drink, obviously.
