Featured Crouch End Restaurants
1. Allora Hall International restaurant in Crouch End 2 Park Road - N8
From the same group as Canova Hall, Martello Hall et al, a new hot-desking space; the restaurant serves pizza, pasta and chicken, plus breakfasts, weekend brunch and plenty of choice for vegans.
2. Ready Burger Burgers, etc restaurant in Crouch End 16 Park Road - N8
100% plant-based fast food; a second branch opens in Finchley Road in summer 2021, and crowdfunding is underway to finance expansion plans.
3. Bar Esteban Spanish restaurant in Crouch End 29 Park Rd - N8
“Brilliant upmarket tapas” have Crouch Enders purring that “we’re lucky to have this as our local Spanish restaurant”. It’s run by “lovely people” and has some “really interesting Spanish wines from smaller vineyards”. Top Tip – “paella lunches at the weekend are great fun with the kids”.
4. Sumak Turkish restaurant in Crouch End 141 Tottenham Lane - N8
“Continuing its reign as the best Turkish restaurant in Crouch End, Hornsey and Harringay, beating all opposition in nearby Green Lanes”: the “fantastic food” comes with “unlimited, sumac-spiced breads and delicious salads”. It “even looks a bit more stylish” since the installation of wall hangings and better lighting.
5. Banners International restaurant in Crouch End 21 Park Road - N8
“Perfect for breakfast” – Juliette Banner’s “very family-friendly”, neighbourhood diner has been a treasured staple of Crouch End life since it opened in 1992 (and chef Tim Peterman has been in charge of the stoves all this time too). By contrast, its wacky mix of world food cuisine makes it “a bit of an unreliable option for dinner” though.
6. Bistro Aix French restaurant in Crouch End 54 Topsfield Pde, Tottenham Ln - N8
A “long-time, local favourite” – this “relaxed”, retro bistro brings the classic flavours of France to Crouch End. Chef-proprietor Lynne Sanders and her team send “reliably good food” out from the kitchen.
9. Melange Italian restaurant in Crouch End 45 Topsfield Parade, Tottenham Lane - N8
2019 Review: ‘A taste of France & Italy… in a versatile industry-vintage interior’ is the promise of this modern bistro in Crouch End, which inspires limited but positive feedback. It must be doing something right, however, as this year it’s spread its wings to take over the prominent Belsize Park site that was most recently The Truscott Arms (and which some still remember as the Weng Wah House, long RIP).
10. Cannons Fish & chips restaurant in Crouch End 4-6 Park Road - N8
2018 Review: “Cooked to order fish”, “brilliant chips” and “helpful staff” help win a small but very enthusiastic fan club for this Crouch End chippy; they have one in Southgate too.
