Blazing the trail for future dining, T.E.D (Think.Eat.Drink) Restaurant, suitably situated at the heart of the King’s Cross regeneration, is putting the green into gourmet.
Brought to you by Jamie Grainger-Smith, whose impressive resumè includes setting up Fifteen with Jamie Oliver and co-founding the award-winning Acorn House and The Waterhouse restaurants, T.E.D offers outstanding ethically sourced British produce within a stunning yet environmentally conscious setting. T.E.D aims to create a feel-good food and drink experience without compromising on quality and style or its commitment to the customer and the planet.
Housed over two floors, the striking setting has been designed and built to the highest standard using sustainably sourced salvaged furniture, fixtures and fabrics from suppliers handpicked for their eco-sensitive practices.
The ground level oozes elegance with a cool cream undertone balanced by warm circular soft brown leather banquettes. Pops of colour, from the neon blown glass light fittings to the collection of orange, electric blue and black recycled cushioned chairs, bring the space to life. Pre-loved green and blue patterned tiles punctuate the beautiful natural lava top bar whilst a unique decorative light structure of collected disused blow torches showcases re-cycling at its very best.
Guests can watch the chefs in action in the open kitchen on the lower level, which also features three old coal-drop vaults for private dining.
Eat and Drink
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner through to lazy weekend brunches, T.E.D delivers a seasonal menu of international flavours using fully traceable British ingredients.
An all-day menu of creative dishes includes Dorset crab and sour sough with fresh radish; Wye Valley asparagus, parmesan and egg yolk followed by black bream gnocchi and tomato vinaigrette; ricotta gundi with roasted lettuce and a pea summer savoury and bavette of beef with Swiss chard gratin. For dessert the apricot clafoutis served with homemade vanilla ice cream; custard tart, pine nuts and golden raisins alongside a retro ‘Floating Island’ are sure to be a hit.
The restaurant offers an international wine list from responsible suppliers bursting with a wide variety of biodynamic, carbon-neutral and traditional choices. The bar will offer a balanced collection of organic spirits and mixers alongside a beautifully crafted cocktail menu using the freshest ingredients such as summer berries, fruit and seasonal herbs including dill, basil and rosemary. A delicious selection of non-alcoholic options will also be available.
