Upper Glas - Islington, what happened? and any recs nearby

I'm going to a concert in Islington this Saturday and was hoping to try the Swedish restaurant Upper Glas. Unfortunately it seems to have closed recently. Anyone know why and whether it will re-open elsewhere (I gather it had previously moved from Borough Market)

Any suggestions for an early (6pm) dinner in that area (around Upper Street) would be appreciated - somewhere casual (we'll be wearing jeans for the concert probably), relaxed but with prompt service, any cuisine really, or a pub with good food. Budget around £25 - 30 per head for main + either a starter or desert (not including drinks)

Thanks for any suggestions

Pete
