Pasta lovers rejoice: the historic Lina Stores is finally venturing outside of Soho, with a brand new restaurant in Kings Cross. Pioneering Italian ingredients and seasonal food for over 75 years, the Brewer Street-based delicatessen opened its first restaurant a few streets over only last year and now you can get a taste outside of their usual West End remit. Expect both countertop and banquette seating, with space for 100 covers.
Handmade each day, fresh pasta will be used to create dishes like Osso Bucco ravioli served with bone marrow butter and duck egg yolk tagliolini topped with truffle. If that's not enough, then finish off with stuffed cannoli, syrup-laden rum baba and a luxurious chocolate torta Caprese; all wheeled out on a classic Italian dessert trolley.
Just yards from Coal Drops Yard's Vermuteria, the sprawling restaurant will also be serving up Italian drinks from the aperitivo bar. Think vermouth and spritzes alongside a wine list centred on organic and dynamic bottles.
