Harden's says

A 'bar with food' (focusing heavily on vermouths) from by Anthony Demetre, the owner of Wild Honey and Arbutus (RIP).

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“An exemplary range of vermouths” and “a very approachable style by the rather strained hipster standards of Coal Drops Yard” help win praise for Anthony Demetre’s all-day bar/café in the new development, where his stated aim is to ape the best points of his favourite bars in Italy, France and Spain; and where “the food is standard modern small plates fare, decently done”. The odd all-round disastrous report, however, somewhat takes the gloss off its ratings.

Summary

Anthony Demetre (he of Wild Honey and formerly Arbutus) has been announced as the latest incumbent of the Coal Drops Yard development in King’s Cross. His bar and cafe will be an all-day take on the vermouth bars of Spain and Italy (vermuterias); over 50 different vermouths will be available.
