A new restaurant for King’s Cross
Granary Square Brasserie has opened its doors on Granary Square in the heart of King’s Cross. The all-day eatery offers modern British brasserie-style cooking, alongside internationally inspired dishes. This is welcoming place to meet, hang out, eat and drink, any time of the day or night.
The brasserie offers breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, and cream teas in the afternoon. Throughout the day, the lounge area, with its vintage leather bucket chairs and low brass tables is perfect for lunch or informal meetings. As the sun goes down, the DJ set begins and the cocktails flow. The décor in this Grade II-listed space comes into its own at night – with stunning cut-glass pendant lights, chairs and banquettes upholstered in silk and velvet and exotic kilim rugs. The striking central bar is the perfect spot to survey the scene and enjoy an aperitif.
The evening a la carte menu features the likes of calamari with wasabi mayo, lime & chilli, and slow roasted lamb shoulder with roast vegetables. At the weekend, brunch is on offer until 4pm, accompanied by champagne, wine or cocktails, with music throughout the day.
Outside, facing onto Granary Square is GSB’s pretty garden terrace, the Physic Garden. Created in partnership with
Fever-Tree, the terrace celebrates the long history of the humble G&T, in particular, the use of medicinal herbs in the iconic cocktail.
In the 1800s, plants renowned for their healing properties – sage, juniper, chamomile, mint and lavender – were grown to be used by the physics, or doctors, of the day. One of the most vital of these was quinine, to be given to British navy troops for it’s malaria-fighting properties. Offput by the unpalatable bitter flavour, the ingenious sailors mixed their ‘tonic’ with their rations of gin – and the great British tipple was born.
The leafy terrace enjoys beautiful views across Regent’s Canal and the Granary Square fountains, and is surrounded by boxes of bright, tumbling plants, creating a glorious green oasis. On the dedicated G&T menu, you’ll find 6 perfectly paired gin blends, all carefully created to make use of those healing plants in the medicines of old.
