Squaremeal Review of Grain Store ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016If ever you wanted to feel good about your body while still enjoying "wonderfully original" food, chef Bruno Loubet's Grain Store might be just the thing. His "very different" seasonal repertoire elevates vegetables to a starring role as he plunders the global larder: pickled daikon and cucumber, borage and oyster leaves take centre stage in a dish with flamed mackerel, for example. We'd recommend ordering several items to share – perhaps the lightest pea tartlet with Parmesan crackling or broad bean and chickpea hummus with slow-cooked duck and springy onion bread for mopping. Grain Store is also a diamond for brunch, while cocktails come courtesy of drinks supremo Tony Conigliaro (of 69 Colebrooke Row fame). Occupying a vast converted warehouse, this "quirky" venue bursts into life when the sun shines and the piazza is buzzing. The "nicest of staff" also help ramp up the feel-good factor.

    Emma Rose Tully :: Review: Grain Store | Daydreamer

    Last weekends adventures are another example of why I love London. I’ve lived here almost 3 years now and I’m still discovering new places all the time. Having recently reviewed Caravan, I returned to Granary Square in King’s Cross, this time to sample brunch at the Grain Store.

    Whilst meat and fish do feature on the menu, vegetables take centre stage at the Grain Store which opened it’s doors in June 2013 to rave reviews. The chaps behind all the awards are Chef Bruno Loubet and The Zetter Group’s Michael Benyan and Mark Sainsbury...

    Her Favourite Food :: Her Favourite Food: The Grain Store

    Located in one of the most exciting quarters in London, The Grain Store certainly is an exciting restaurant.

    As diners walk through The Grain Store they are met with a vast dining space seems to go on for miles. This enormous space, once a warehouse, is now composed of white-painted wood, whitewashed brick walls quirky furnishings. This makes it brightly light and lightly coloured and despite it being a cavernous space, there is an artful and creative mood to it too.


    These impressive interiors are created by the acclaimed Russell Sage who also worked on Bread Street Kitchen. Yet at The Grain...

    Happy Belly: Best Eats This Week: Seeded Scone with Vegemite Butter (Grain Store, London) :: Happy Belly: Seeded Scone with Vegemite Butter (Grain Store, London)

    As much as I love London's prolific food scene, the sheer number of options for a simple meal can be painfully overwhelming. Take brunch, everywhere does brunch, and everywhere serves the same pancakes, fry-ups and porridge. So when convenience and cost are taken out as factors, how does one choose? Restaurants must make themselves stand out with something different, some imagination, something that makes your eyes light up in anticipation --- and with Grain Store, its brunch menu was just a beautiful list of exciting and original dishes.

    COVERS & CAPERS :: Grain Store | Stable Street | COVERS & CAPERS

    But at Grain Store – the restaurant Loubet co-owns with Michael Benyon and Mark Sainsbury of the Zetter Group – the menu is inspired by the Frenchman’s love for stuff pulled out of the ground. And that’s no problem, not any more. I’ve grown to love vegetables when they’re not being forced down my neck by an insistent parent. Although there’s something disturbing about reading ‘fermented cabbages, ash baked turnips & celeriac, persimmon & chipotle ketchup and venison steak’ on a London menu that seems to revive your mother’s distant voice, that one where she’s singing “here comes the aeroplane!”...

Bruno Loubet

There have been two phases to Bordeaux-born chef Bruno Loubet’s UK career, with a period in Australia in the middle. In the 80s and 90s, he went from La Tante Claire to Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons and The Four Seasons, before opening Bistro Bruno (1993) and L’Odéon (1995). Loubet returned from Oz in 2010 to launch Bistrot Bruno Loubet at the Zetter Hotel, and his vegetable-focused Grain Store followed in 2013.
