A stones throw from busy King’s Cross station, on a quiet sun drenched piazza overlooking King’s Boulevard is Bill Granger’s latest addition to his cluster of popular all day restaurants – Granger & Co. Best known for his laid back, fresh and wholesome vegan brunch menus, the Aussie chef is now making his mark on the London dinner scene too, with an equally tasty evening menu. There’s an air of 80’s Italian hotel lobby (but in a good way) with rose tinted marble, terrazzo, brass, abstract art and a long sweeping bar clad in the prettiest soft-pink square tiles.
The menu is the same as at the other two venues, and it’s full of the kind of fresh salads, sandwiches, small plates and main dishes that you’d find at a cool cafe in Sydney. Their ‘bowls’ and sandwiches are the best lunches, while at dinner put a meal together from small plates and salads. None of it is exactly cheap, but the food’s consistently good.

This all-day dining venue is about sunny, healthy food, and exhibits plant-forward originality (the Japanese brunch bowl is vegan-dreamy). Creativity and ethics are commendable. But in the British sense of the word, the food here is fine - not exceptional, not terrible.
