The Ziggy Stardust-style paint daubed across the brick exterior turns this former 19th century warehouse into a work of art. Flashes of farmhouse comfort lend character and warmth to the contemporary interior; steel tables and chairs are mixed with whitewashed wooden furniture, and fresh, wholesome produce like fat pumpkins and flavorful herbs sit proudly on display.

Although vegan and vegetarian-friendly, you’ll have no problem satisfying your meat cravings here; along with spiced lentil cake with banana ketchup and chilli con veggies are dishes such as lamb confit with piquillo pepper purée, roast rabbit saddle and squid with udon noodles. Where drinks are concerned, one of London’s top shakers, Tony Conigliaro has written a divine menu that’s equal parts sweet and savoury. Begin with a Pumpkin & Maple Syrup Bellini and then move on to his smoked Greco-Roman wines.

Inside track

Top table: In fair weather, ask to dine alfresco on the sizeable terrace. Otherwise, perch within view of the open kitchen to watch the skilled chefs work their magic.

Dress code: This newly revamped part of Kings Cross is a magnet for the young and stylish, so effortless-chic is the name of the game.
