Caravan King’s Cross – Cool Fusion Restaurant on Granary Square

Caravan King’s Cross, the second outpost of Caravan Restaurant on Exmouth Market, opened in King’s Cross in August 2012, located in the Grade II-listed Granary Building, behind King’s Cross Station and St Pancras International.

The interiors reflect the area’s Victorian industrial heritage, which exudes a cool, current vibe with low hanging lighting, exposed brick work and reclaimed furniture.

On our evening visit, the atmosphere was spot on, with an excellent buzz. Caravan is known for its coffee, and the coffee roastery sets the scene at the back of the restaurant.

The restaurant has 80 covers and serves a menu of ‘food well-travelled’, from breakfast and weekend brunch through to lunch and dinner, with outside seating for 40 people on Granary Square

The evening menu includes a large selection of small plates, a section called ‘Bread, Cheese, Meats’, a handful of large plates and a new pizza menu that can also be ordered for take away.

The highlights on our visit were the small plates, including ‘Goat’s curd, nectarine, braised onion and pine nuts’, with the nectarine working surprisingly well with the curd; the ‘Chorizo and butternut squash croquettes’, which succeeded in being crisp on the outside and unbelievably smooth on the inside, with no need for the accompanying saffron aioli; and polenta-like grits, which came with girolles, Pecorino and subtle truffle oil.

The original Caravan excelled in its weekend brunch, featuring in Bon Vivant’s guide to the best brunch in London, and I really can’t wait to return to try out the new brunch menu at Caravan King’s Cross.

Being a big fan of the original site, I know how much the owners have put into both restaurants and it was great to see them at the King’s Cross site with a mix of relief and pride that the restaurant was already full only 2 weeks in – on our first visit, it will surely be a resounding success.
