|Albertine Wine Bar|
The Albertine was a favourite BBC watering hole on Wood Lane - and one of the nicest boozers in our neighbourhood.
The Albertine is also a place that made history - it's where where the very first EastEnders script was written.
But for Allegra it's a very personal story, since the Albertine was founded by Allegra's Mum back in the late 1970s. And for local residents, it will be great to see this lovely piece of Old Shepherd's Bush restored to its former glory.
To find out what the new Albertine will be like, you'll have to wait until mid-February. Meanwhile, to see the full story, read this piece at the Evening Standard, or this one at the Telegraph.
