“Shame it’s impossible to get a table”, at Assaf Granit’s “happening” (“loud and busy”) Israeli newcomer – “possibly now the best restaurant in the new King’s Cross quarter”, and one of the smash hits of the year. With its “amazing location” – a “very cool”, Victorian ex-industrial building, with “funky Tom Dixon decor” (“his designer stuff strewn everywhere”) and an “enticing terrace” – it has “an easy casual vibe”, boosted by “such happy service”. For newbies, “the menu takes a little explanation” and delivers “zingy, appetising, rich” small plates which amaze many diners, although they can also seem “to be trying too hard” and “portions aren’t massive”. Top Tip – “the bread is outstanding”.

Summary

Assaf Granit, chef and co-owner of The Palomar and The Barbary, is behind this early autumn 2018 Mediterranean/Middle Eastern-inspired opening in a big, Victorian, ex-industrial brick pile by the canal in King’s Cross: a 160-cover space split over three floors, with a rooftop terrace and al fresco dining area, complete with panoramic views over Granary Square. Designer Tom Dixon, whose practice is nearby, is also involved creating, for example, tableware which is for sale.
