Featured North Kensington Restaurants
1. Southam Street Japanese restaurant in North Kensington 36 Golborne Road - W10
The co-founders of Notting-Hill’s awesome 108 Garage are to launch a second venture nearby, on the former site of Victorian boozer West Thirty Six (RIP) in late 2017; the new place will cover three storeys and include a Japanese robata grill, a private BBQ area, a raw bar serving Nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese fusion) cuisine and a private member’s champagne bar.
2. Flat Iron Steaks & grills restaurant in North Kensington 46 Golborne Rd - W10
“If you are only going to do one thing, do it well ...and they do!” Charlie Carroll’s small chain offers “a limited menu but a great piece of steak” (plus a veggie alternative), which is “simply and perfectly cooked” and “free homemade ice cream is a lovely surprise” to finish. “You don’t go for an intimate meal, but service is straightforward and effective”. (Expect more expansion, as he just raised £10m from Piper private equity to grow the brand.)
3. Lisboa Pâtisserie Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in North Kensington 57 Golborne Rd - W10
“Simply the best pastéis de nata in London, and excellent coffee too” make it worth adding this “truly unpretentious” and “good value” Portuguese café into a trip down Portobello way, although NB “it’s very crowded most of the time”.
4. Snaps & Rye Danish restaurant in North Kensington 93 Golborne Rd - W10
“Unique, fresh combos of Scandi flavours, particularly fish” score well at this “highly commendable” Danish diner in North Kensington; also “great for breakfast or brunch” (“really good coffee”), “informal lunch”, and the “weekly set four-course dinner”, with “an extensive selection of akvavit”.
5. Pizza East Portobello Pizza restaurant in North Kensington 310 Portobello Rd - W10
“If you can tolerate the noise and the hipsters” (particularly at the “cavernous and noisy” Shoreditch original), these “slick” Soho House-owned haunts provide “decent pizza” with “interesting toppings and flavours” and “have a good vibe as well”.
