Squaremeal Review of VOC Grill ?

King’s Cross ‘punch house’ VOC has broadened its appeal with the launch of a new restaurant that continues the globetrotting ethos of the old Dutch East India Company – aka Vereenigde Oo-Indische Compagnie (VOC for short). Pitched alongside the bar, VOC Grill specialises in quality cuts of steak and seafood with lots of eclectic flavours, spices and on-trend culinary techniques tossed into the melting pot. Rib-eye steaks are cooked sous-vide before being grilled over almond and apple wood, char-grilled duck breast might appear with an umami marinade, and fish could include pike with dandelion salad and sea-urchin powder. The food is matched by VOC’s reinvented 17th-century punches and offbeat cocktails from the Fluid Movement team of mixologists, with a huge cigar selection and attractive courtyard area completing the package.

    When you enter VOC it looks a bit like a homey pub. There are chairs and book shelves, lamps and bricks and really just general decor that looks like it belongs in the study. The Bar section fairly dark and on the Friday evening we went was plenty crowded.
    Once you make your way through the crowd at the bar you can go up a few stairs to the dining area which is quite a stark contrast. It’s not bright exactly, but much brighter with light coloured walls and much more minimal decor.
