Galley, a restaurant serving international dishes with a strong focus on fish, is set to open its doors on Islington's Upper Street next month. 

The 70-cover restaurant, the creation of chef Marcel Grzyb and his sister, stylist Oriona Robb, will officially open on the former United Ramen site on 2 February following a soft launch from 29 January.

Polish-born Grzyb, who was head chef at Randall & Aubin for 10 years, has created a menu which displays the cooking styles and flavours of North Africa, Asia, South America and Europe. 

Small plates include Hand dived in-shell Scottish scallops, carrot, cardamom puree and toasted hazelnuts and Yellowfin tuna tartare, mango, avocado, wasabi nori crisps, teriyaki and Galley fish stew, while large plates include Roasted Cornish hake, Brixham John Dory served with spinach, romanesco, cauliflower puree and saffron and mussel sauce, Lobster pappardelle and Scottish venison with smoked potato puree, braised cabbage and thyme gravy. 

Desserts will include Salted caramel tart with green tea ice-cream and White chocolate panna cotta. A cocktail list will also be available as will a brunch menu for weekends. 

The restaurant's interior, which has been designed by Robb, has a vintage feel with dark green velvet banquette seating, resin flooring and vintage rugs. There is an open kitchen and bar with Moroccan style tiles and a Carrara marble worktop.
