{tasty morsels-Grain Store}

{Grain Store}
I realise it's been a while since I wrote a post related to 'tasty morsels' but bad knees & Christmas got in the way...However, this morning we were ladies who brunched again, and it was divine! (for those of you unfamiliar with tasty morsels, I'm trying out a list of London restaurants and blogging about them-read more here).

This time, N. 4 on the list is the Grain Store, located in a new & developing area, behind Kings Cross.



 The brunch menu was simply delish--& hard to choose from!


We shared a couple of appetisers: the chorizo scotch egg & the wild mushroom croquettes:

{presentation was absolutely lovely, especially the croquettes on pine trimmings}


Sara and I both ordered the poached Clarence court egg served with pumpkin hummus, drained yogurt, dukkah & flat bread:
 & Suzy had the frittata: 


all very very good!
I absolutely loved the aesthetics of the place: old & new, traditional and modern, industrial and pantry, fused together...and the colours & materials: lots of whites, greys, steel, wood, and a splash of colour here & there....
I particularly loved the way they mismatched chairs, but painted them all in white...
{check out the variety of chairs}

{ladies who brunch!}




& my favourite thing of all? a bar cart made out of a pram!




& finally...a very funky Loo:
are you hungry & decor-envy yet??? For more pics of the place, see the Grain Store website's gallery.
lovely way to spend a Sunday!
just a note: it's really difficult to get a table here for dinner--tables are apparently booked weeks & sometimes months in advance. Brunch, however, was do-able...I think Sara made a reso about a week in advance. It was fairly empty at about 11 when we arrived, but by the time we left, it was PACKED...& it's a very large space.
stay tuned for more,
L
