Restaurants In North London
|| When you tire of
eating out in north London, your tastebuds are probably
tired of life…Ok so this may not be how the saying
really goes, but with the wealth of restaurants in the
area, the sentiment certainly can’t be too far away
from the truth.
For modern European food there’s plenty of choice
across London with north London playing host to its fair
share. If you’re unsure of where to go then two
suggestions are Fredericks [map] and Granita [map].
For more than 30 years Fredericks [map] has been at the
forefront of north London eating. This family run restaurant,
serving an eclectic range of food, is popular with Islington
residents and visitors. While Granita [map], which used
to be known as Tony Blair’s regular eatery, has
a menu with a Mediterranean streak that keeps diners coming
back for more.
If your whole family wants to enjoy the dinning experience
then Giraffe [map] may be a good place to try. Their global menu is noted
for its nutritious nature and this may be why it’s
so popular with parents. But the food is tasty enough
to warrant a try whether you have young ones or not.
For a relaxed evening out with friends one of the area’s
gastro pubs may be the best option. They provide good
food without the social constraints of restaurant dinning.
Two of the best in the area are the North Star [map] and the Duke of Cambridge [map],
the latter having the added attraction of serving only
organic food and drink.
For those planning on going out with friends or family
who can’t agree, a restaurant like Kam Pai [map] might be the answer. This Islington eatery serves both
Japanese and Mediterranean food under the same roof and
at the same table. This is not a split section restaurant
or a fusion restaurant it’s simply one that is able
to combine traditional food from two very different cultures
in this cosy venue close to Angel tube station.
Another Islington restaurant combining cultural cuisines
on one menu is Errays [map]. Open for both lunch and
dinner you’ll find flavoursome Mediterranean and
Asian dishes on offer.
You’ll find fish and chips, north London style,
served at Toffs [map] on Muswell Hill and Two Brothers [map] on Regents Park Road. There’s debate about which
of the two can claim to be the best but neither offer
greasy, newspaper covered cuisine; just fresh, crisp food
which can be enjoyed as part of a three course meal or
taken away for satisfaction on the sofa.
