{restaurant} East Beach Cafe in Littlehampton, UK

Are you tired of consuming your fried fish in an unseemly setting? May I suggest you head to Littlehampton, England, and you can chow all the cod n’ chips you like in the amazing Thomas Heatherwick-designed East Beach Café.

With crowds streaming in to catch a gander, folks have noticed the stunning structure is having a “Bilbao effect” on the little beachfront burg. I can see why. I wanna go! I wanna go! So where’s Littlehampton in relation to somewhere you might actually be, ie London? I did some research and it looks like it’s about a 2 hour drive, near Brighton. Here. I’ll even give you directions. And tell you that can also take the Southern Line from London. You’re welcome!

    Wow. I love it.

    I suspect my husband would hate it, though – there’s a Gehry-designed building at MIT which he hates because it is too unlike its surrounding buildings. I don’t think it’s THAT unlike them except that it’s all wibbly and melty. I wonder, if this one stands alone on its beach, maybe he wouldn’t have anything to object to.
