Granary Square Brasserie, King’s Cross

Brasserie in King’s Cross

Granary Square is a fantastic addition to the newly revamped Kings Cross with a number of shops, restaurants and bars. We visited Granary Square Brasserie in King’s Cross, hailing from the same team as the Ivy.

The venue is absolutely stunning with cut-glass pendant lights and chairs and banquettes upholstered in silk and velvet. The main eye opener is the gorgeous bar in the centre which is perfect for a few cocktails.

The Cocktails 

We were impressed by the selection of cocktails at Granary Square Brasserie which are reasonably priced at £8-10. We had the 1852: White rum, cherry liqueur, cold brew hibiscus, cherry syrup and Platform 9¾ :Chase Williams Seville orange gin, Crème de Bergamote, citric acid, Yumchaa blue tea and a cloud of candyfloss which changes colour! Expelliarmus as I was told! We also ended the meal with a  Salted caramel espresso martini  which went down a treat.

The Brassiere Menu

To begin we had the Truffle arancini: Fried Arborio rice balls with truffle and Parmesa. These were certainly small delicious balls of goodness. We also had the Calamari: wasabi mayonnaise, lime and chilli. Unfortunately, it was not as good as some I have had – it was a little too cheqy. I loved the look of the Mozzarella di bufala: Asparagus and edamame with
roasted pine nuts, pesto and baby basil but they had sadly run out – definitely trying that next time!

For mains we had the Sirloin 10oz with peppercorn sauce and Truffle and Parmesan chips which was so flavoursome. It was a really great cut of meat. We also had the Chicken Milanese: Brioche crumbed chicken breast with marinated tomato, capers and rocket and the Tenderstem broccoli, lemon oil & sea salt. The chicken milanese was huge, moist and flavoursome with the marinated tomato and parmesan.

I am more of a savoury than sweet girl until I discovered the Melting chocolate bombe with a vanilla ice cream and honeycomb centre with hot salted caramel sauce – you MUST save room for this. When the hot caramel sauce is poured over, the bombe melts (makes a great video) – the hot and cold contrast is just perfect and, for me, the honeycomb addition made it for me.

In summary
