British, Modern Restaurants in Bloomsbury
1. Noble Rot British, Modern restaurant in Bloomsbury 51 Lamb's Conduit St - WC1
“Allied to the magazine of the same name”, Mark Andrew and Daniel Keeling’s Bloomsbury four-year-old took over the “lovely”, if “slightly cramped” premises that were previously the marvellously old-school wine bar Vats (RIP). It has a “brilliantly curated” wine list “featuring something for everyone: from small, natural and biodynamic producers using grapes you’ve never heard of (from areas you didn’t even know produced wine), to the grand marques of the first growth Bordeaux. There is something for everyone and the staff are ridiculously knowledgeable and keen to help guide you through as much or as little as you want”. The “simple” fare that accompanies it is better-than-incidental too (“sometimes outstanding”), and prepared with “an assured touch”. “It’s not a place for loony foodies of the Instagram persuasion, thank God. Just really good fun!” And “all without it being daylight robbery” too.
2. Isla British, Modern restaurant in Bloomsbury The Standard Hotel, 10 Argyle Street - WC1H
This hip American hotel opened in summer 2019 with several restaurants, including this garden restaurant overseen by Adam Rawson which offers a ‘seasonal menu, featuring light proteins and a predominantly natural wine list’. He will also be looking after ground-floor, street-facing ’neighbourhood’ bar, Double Standard (see also, and rooftop restaurant Decimo too).
3. The Norfolk Arms British, Modern restaurant in Bloomsbury 28 Leigh St - WC1
“Great, good-value tapas” is a slightly surprising find at this classic London pub, “hiding” in sidestreet near King’s Cross: “a real revelation in an area not noted for good places to eat”.
4. Dalloway Terrace, Bloomsbury Hotel Afternoon tea restaurant in Bloomsbury 16-22 Great Russell St - WC1
With its foliage and fairy lights, it’s hard to believe that this hotel terrace (with fully retractable roof) is just two minutes’ walk from grungy Centre Point. Feedback is limited, mostly focusing on its afternoon tea possibilities; “great cocktails too in the adjoining Coral room”.
5. Double Standard British, Modern restaurant in Bloomsbury The Standard, 10 Argyle St - WC1H
Part of a trendy, US hotel-chain’s summer 2019 opening, opposite King’s Cross station – this ground-floor, street-facing ’neighbourhood’ bar has Adam Rawson in charge (he will also look after Isla, a garden restaurant). Double Standard promises casual drinking and dining, with draft beers and classic cocktails in a Shawn-Hausman-designed space. See also Decimo and Isla.
6. Galvin Bar & Grill British, Modern restaurant in Bloomsbury Kimpton Fitzroy, 1-8 Russell Square - WC1B
The Galvin Brothers and Gary Rhodes-trained chef Adam Gray opened this 100-cover hotel dining room in late September 2021.
