Palomar owner and Tom Dixon team up for King's Cross restaurant
Designer Tom Dixon is to partner with chef Assaf Granit, of The Palomar and The Barbary restaurants in London, to open a new restaurant on Granary Square in King’s Cross.

BigHospitality's​ sister site MCA​ reports that The Coal Office Restaurant, which will be housed next to Dixon’s new offices, will be a Mediterranean/Middle-Eastern inspired, all-day dining restaurant with 360-degree views over Granary Square and newly regenerated parts of London.

The 160-cover restaurant will also feature a roof top terrace, outside dining area and an open kitchen layout throughout three floors.

Granit is also chef-owner of the Balagan restaurant in Paris and Machneyuda in Jerusalem.

Originally built as a Victorian coal store, Coal Drops Yard has been redeveloped in to a restaurant and retail space featuring the surviving brick viaducts, iron work and cobbled streets, which will open as a whole in autumn 2018.

A number of operators have been linked with the scheme including Steve Parle, the Sethi family, Columbo Group and the team behind Padella.

Harts Group is planning to crowdfund the launch​ of its largest Barrafina restaurant yet at the development.

It will also launch its new Mexican concept Casa Pastor, described as a 'big sister' to its Borough Market restaurant El Pastor, alongside 79-cover wine bar The Drop, at the King's Cross scheme.
