The Olympic legacy of London 2012 is a confusing one. It involves a red slide that looks like the result of a child trying to tie a knot, and it also involves Here East, which is basically Hackney Wick’s answer to the Excel Centre. Gotto Trattoria is an Italian restaurant at the base of it, and though it still feels a little sterile, the environment is a very pleasant one if you’re looking for a bowl of pasta and walk along the canal on a nice day.
