“In revitalised Coal Drops Yard” – Angela Hartnett protégée Pip Lacey’s late-2018 opening is generally credited as “an excellent addition to the new development”. But while just about everyone loves its “beautifully designed and buzzy” interior, when it comes to her “interesting dishes, cooked over wood, mainly for sharing”, then opinions are more divided. “Some truly unusual combinations” make it a brand-new-favourite for some diners, but even fans sometimes note that “the ratio of tiny portion size to high cost is a problem”, and for others the cooking is “just not memorable enough”: “confused and far too expensive for what was delivered”. Top Tip – it’s pronounced ‘ee-chay’.
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.
Hicce Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Creative, interesting dishes well prepared and well presented. Portions on the small side. "
"Really interesting food (and drinks). Well prepared and clearly fresh. Imaginative combinations make for a great dinner. Staff are familiar but get away with it as they are genuine "
