Assaf Granit, the chef behind Middle Eastern restaurant The Palomar, has opened a restaurant in with designer Tom Dixon at the Coal Drops Yard development in King’s Cross, London.


The duo have launched The Coal Office in Bagley Walk, next to Dixon’s new HQ, the first venue to open at the scheme. They describe the restaurant as “a place where you can experience fresh, creative food in a variety of beautifully designed and atmospheric spaces, where the provenance is explained, the tableware is available to buy, and the recipes are shared”.


The menu is split into a variety of snacks, small and larger plates. Small plates include sashimi uri style with kingfish and a ginger vinaigrette while larger dishes feature midnight shawarma with baked bone marrow and freekeh risotto with skordalia cream and black aubergine, reports Hot Dinners. Coal Drops Yard officially opens in October and will home to more than 50 stores, cafes and restaurants including the third site for Hart Brothers’ El Pastor and their new-concept wine bar and restaurant The Drop.
