Featured Finsbury Park Restaurants
1. Pasta Remoli Italian restaurant in Finsbury Park 7 Clifton Terrace - N4
From its Finsbury Park base (next to the Park Theatre), this “cheerful” group of “good neighbourhood pasta-stops” has expanded to Ealing this year, with a Wembley branch coming soon (there’s also an outlet in Westfield Stratford); all deliver “well-cooked”, affordable pasta.
2. Max's Sandwich Shop Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Finsbury Park 19 Crouch Hill - N4
Max Halley’s cult Stroud Green café has won renown as an “outstanding, cheap ’n’ cheerful” gourmet option, thanks to its wild, wacky and wickedly enjoyable selection of sarnies, each of which amounts to what’s effectively a meal between slices of bread (be prepared to get your hands dirty).
3. Pizzeria Pappagone Italian restaurant in Finsbury Park 131 Stroud Green Rd - N4
“Such a fun neighbourhood pizzeria” – this “friendly”, if hectic, indie has been a Finsbury Park fixture for 21 years. They do “very competent pasta”, too, and are kid-friendly to the extent of producing “pizza dough dinosaurs”.
4. Dotori Korean restaurant in Finsbury Park 3a Stroud Green Rd - N4
“Brill sushi and mouth-numbingly spicy Korean hotpots” draw a bustling crowd of overseas students to this “unprepossessing” operation near Finsbury Park tube – once “the best-kept secret in town”. But word has spread about the “sensational Korean and Japanese food for £10-£20 a head” – “authentic and in huge portions”. Cash only and no booking.
5. Osteria Tufo Italian restaurant in Finsbury Park 67 Fonthill Rd - N4
This “Italian gem” in Finsbury Park has locals purring with its “wonderful homemade pasta” and “brilliant service from Paola and her team” – “we were a fussy group aged 7 to 75 and the staff catered for our every desire”. Yes, there’s “a singing waiter”, but “it’s not cringe-worthy, he’s really good!”.
6. Yard Sale Pizza Pizza restaurant in Finsbury Park 54 Blackstock Road - N4
“Unusual toppings that actually work” (“BBQ sauce!”) and “the best-ever, super-thin crusts” are hallmarks of this “achingly East London trendy” quartet of “excellent” and “inventive” pizza-stops.
9. Oak N4 British, Modern restaurant in Finsbury Park 5-7 Wells Terrace - N4
New to Finsbury Park, and more a wine-shop-with-food than a restaurant or bar, but we thought it worth including. Wine tasters are provided with nibbles to accompany food, and larger, sharing plates of cheese, charcuterie, etc can be ordered. Raul Diaz, the wine expert from TV's Sunday Brunch, has helped with the bin selection, and will be running tasting events.
