Following the success of his self-named Bistrot in Clerkenwell, Bruno Loubet’s second outfit occupies a cavernous brick warehouse on regenerated Granary Square. Readers love the vibe of this warm oasis (think high-spec industrial chic meets country kitchen), but Loubet’s accessibly priced food is what attracts. Vegetables and greenery reign supreme here, with animal protein given a supporting role on the menu. Expect a ‘sublime tasting journey’ with global flourishes reminiscent of Yotam Ottolenghi, as in courgette, broad bean and prawn falafels, braised cauliflower with duck hearts or a South American mishmash of corn and quinoa tamale with salsa and a fatty slab of pork belly. The kaleidoscopic flavours sometimes fail to gel, but clever cocktails from drinks maestro Tony Conigliaro and herb-infused Greco-Roman wines keep things rousing. ‘Trendy’, well-trained staff know their stuff, and the place really comes alive on warm alfresco days.
