OK, we admit it. When we first heard of yet another restaurant/bar opening up in Kings Cross, our reaction was definitely in “WTF” territory. Then we learnt that said venue was a Drake & Morgan establishment and our attention was swiftly in a head lock. This was exciting stuff. Moreover, name-check head chef Dave Green (Dean Street Townhouse) and cocktail master Alex Daulby (Hops & Jigger) and you’ve got even more solicitation. This ninth addition to the D&M family is certain to be the next hottest place for London’s most discerning drinkers and diners.

And there’s plenty of room for us savvy lot: spread out across two floors, there are two bars, an outdoor terrace, a gourmet deli offering easy, on-the-go goodies, a fully-connected lounge for remote working, a plush private dining room and a series of bookable kitchen ‘pods’ for glamorous group gatherings. Luxurious leather furnishings and dark wood panels make it all very sleek and stylish, yet it’s the vibrant emerald green staircase that stops the show — you half expect the Wizard of Oz to take centre stage in the downstairs bar and dedicated DJ area.

 

The food menu is refreshingly straight up and gimmick-free: the focus is on the grill serving tasteful meat, fish and vegetable dishes, but you can also get your burgers & baps, lobster mac & cheese, or gourmet charcuterie and cheese for lighter bites. And we all know Londoners love a good brunch session, right? The full-English is traditionally hearty, avocado on toasted rye is a given-winner, yet it’s the blueberry pancakes that are designed to override your Instagramming reflexes —you’ve got three seconds before that smoked bacon topples from your tower of maple-drizzled goodness.

Needless to say, the drinks menu is equally as impressive and D&M have most definitely catered for all thirsty types. They’ve pulled out a solid wine list as well as a lengthy range of craft beer available on tap and bottle — and if you’re intrigued by the idea of inspired cocktails such as “Ramble Bramble”, “Doctor’s Orders” or just want to sink an Old Fashioned —rejoice, as the D&M bartenders go beyond their call of duty and not only offer their sage advice for your indecision, but are decidedly swift in preparation of chosen cocktail.
