Inspired by the traiteurs of Paris and the gourmet foods stores of New York, Finns of Chelsea Green is one of London’s oldest and most successful delicatessens. Tamara Beckwith Veroni has been a loyal customer for over 10 years, but it first opened back in 1985 and has been run by two generations of women. “Any shop to last this long in Chelsea has to be top quality,” says Veroni. Unlike most delis, Finns prepares 90% of its dishes on the premises. “It’s the best local deli with amazing British homemade treats like cottage pie, fish pie, coq au vin, and its famous smoked mackerel pâté, to name a few that I cannot live without,” says Veroni. She also praises the non-dairy soups for those with dietary restrictions. Customers can eat there and get coffee at the new café, take meals to go, or have Finns cater to their homes.
