This King’s Cross restaurant, the newest of three branches, overlooks King’s Boulevard, the walkway that leads from King’s Cross north to the Regent’s Canal and Granary Square. Tables outside on a quiet piazza catch the sun from 7am until 4pm. On a warm evening it’s surely London’s best new spot for alfresco dining.
Granger’s new operation touches every trend going: small plates, grains, barbecue, Korean – some of these in the same dish. Fancy a poke? You’ll get filled up by Granger’s version of this Hawaiian raw fish salad (rhymes with ‘okay’). Chunks of raw tuna are mixed up with avocado, cherry tomatoes, green samphire stalks, shimeji mushrooms, and a sprinkling of crunchy toasted buckwheat. The multicultural mix of textures and flavours worked really well.
