Summary

Ramsay protégée and former head chef at Angela Hartnett’s Murano, Pip Lacey will open her first restaurant, in King’s Cross’s hip Coal Drops Yard development, in late October 2018, with friend and business partner (who will be front-of-house) Gordy McIntyre; apparently they have been talking about running a restaurant together for 17 years! The focus will be on traditional techniques (marinating, curing and pickling) and there will (of course) be an open wood fire for cooking. Hicce is pronounced ee-che, by the way.

"Great venue, beautifully designed, good buzz to the place. Interesting menu, probably not great for meat fans. Creative though simple flavour combinations. But the portion size/cost ratio is a problem. We had 12 plates among four and we left hungry with a bill of £50 pp. Don't say get more plates - that would make it v poor vale for money. Example - a starter boquerones dish at £7 only had three tiny fillets on it. People aren't stupid, they know what boquerones cost - put more on and keep the customer happy at a net additional cost of about 10p! Interesting wine menu and good service. Sort out the portion size and I would return."

"Great use of space, not too cramped with tables. Food spot on, unusually tasty sprout dish, we all wanted more of. Friendly service. Music just ever so slightly too loud, we were sitting under a speaker."

"Lunch on 6th November during soft opening week. Good points: service was personable, efficient and knowledgeable. Restaurant itself was impressive with plenty of natural light, stunning views and very good acoustics with tables well-spaced. The real, and very surprising, disappointment was the menu and cooking. Pip Lacey was in the open kitchen but there was little evidence of imaginative, or indeed memorable, cooking. Dishes were pleasant but lacked flavour. Several were simply assemblies of ingredients with little cooking skills required. We were expecting new and imaginative cooking from Pip Lacey but, sadly, there was little evidence of this. A real shame as this is a terrific new venue with super staff and a great ambience."
