SquareMeal Review of
This post-industrial refectory on Old Street’s ‘silicon roundabout’ opens for continental-style breakfasts, and offers an all-day roster of cakes, soups and sandwiches (try the BRAT – bacon,
rocket, avocado, tomato and aïoli). The ‘grind’ of the title refers to freshly roasted and brewed coffee in all its forms, from skinny lattes during the day to espressos in the evening, and the
house blend is available to take away, too. After that, groove the night away with designer beers such as Brooklyn Pale Ale, bargain-priced wines and cocktails, which are served to Blue Note-era
jazz and other cool sounds. Order a frozen Hemingway daiquiri or a rhubarb and ginger negroni, then book into the venue’s own recording studio if you fancy a step up from pub karaoke but can’t
brave going on The Voice.
