REVIEW: VINOTECA KINGS CROSS
KingsCross has been getting a whole load of new restaurants recently and latest in line is Vinoteca, the fifth branch of the London restaurant and wine bar. Located on the ground floor of a new development by Kings Cross St Pancras Station, the restaurant also features a bottle shop for wines to take home and there’s even a few tables outside which face the square out front – a great spot for summer we think.
Vinoteca is all about matching food and wine and each dish on the menu has a suggested pairing. Check out Yarm Valley Pink Moscato breakfast wine if you want our advice – finally a wine that’s acceptable to drink at breakfast (and all day long).
The menu features some Mediterranean flavours, we loved the ham croquettes and Sobrassada on Toast from the bar snacks. From the main courses, Vinoteca’s signature bavette steak with wild garlic butter takes some beating. Desserts come in big portions and should not be ignored, whether that’s a rhubarb and vanilla panna cotta or the cheese board. The menu changes regularly and the restaurant is also open early for breakfast and Sundays for roasts.
Whether you stop in for a full on feast or just a glass of wine and cheese, Vinoteca is a great new hangout for Kings Cross.
