Review on Primeur

Primeur is a gem of a neighbourhood restaurant on the borders of Stoke Newington and Islington, located on the site of a former green grocer and more recently a 1930's garage. Large sliding doors open onto a pared back space with a large oak communal table taking centre stage with reclaimed chairs from the Savoy Grill, and a dining counter opposite the kitchen. Decked out in pristine white, the light and airy restaurant looks out onto a quiet, mainly residential, tree-lined street.

The duo behind this venture, chef David Gingell and manager Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim have A-list credentials having previously worked at The Wolseley and with respected chefs, the Galvins, Mark Hix and the Wright and Boxer brothers. The kitchen turns out a crowd-pleasing daily changing menu of small plates showcasing British and European dishes. On the simple handwritten menu you might see lamb meatballs, yogurt and onion; smoked eel with watercress sauce; smoked skate and tomatoes or asparagus and poached egg. For a sweet-toothed finale, enjoy chocolate pot, vanilla cream and almond biscuit or pannacotta paired with rhubarb.

The excellent wine list which focuses on the principle of low-intervention changes daily like the food menu.
