Primeur owners David Gingell (chef) and Jérémie Cometto-Lingenheim (manager) have opened a second restaurant, in a 1950s former laundry (hence the name) in the shadow of the Emirates Stadium in Holloway. Expect an educated selection of natural wines to accompany simply prepared seasonal food - mostly fish and seafood - with hints of southern Europe and Asia.

Primeur owners David Gingell (chef) and Jérémie Cometto-Lingenheim (manager) have opened a second restaurant, in a modishly understated, converted 1950s former laundry (hence the name) in the shadow of the Emirates Stadium in Holloway. Early press reviews are ecstatic (Grace Dent food 5/5, ambience 5/5) regarding its simply prepared seasonal small plates – ‘focusing on produce from the sea’ – and educated selection of natural wines.
Westerns Laundry Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Food perhaps not as good as the staff seem to think it is. But lovely staff and a really nice room done simply but well"
"Pretty crowded of a Friday evening and perhaps the kitchen was struggling a bit - but interesting sharing tapas type plates"
"This packed and noisy room just off the Holloway Road delivers some fantastic food at good prices, enlivened by knowledgeable and efficient service. Certainly felt that we were witnessing the birth of an institution."
"Delicious small plates but some removed from blackboard menu before we ordered so don't go late. Wines tricky, a lot of Austrian ones when we had lunch. French mouvedre rose was good, nothing was cheap. hot sunny Sunday and outer doors open, unsure how it will be in the winter."
