Review on Vermuteria
Respected chef and restaurateur Anthony Demetre, who already operates Wild Honey in Mayfair, has opened a second venture Vermuteria with business partner, designer Michael Sodeau. It's located in the latest foodie hub within the new King's Cross development, designed by Thomas Heatherwick Coal Drops Yard was a former Victorian coal store.
Vermutria is a cosy venue which retains many of the original features such as the exposed brickwork and wooden beams within the arches. The interiors reflect Demetre's love of cycling and showcase original artwork and prints with memorabilia from the Golden Age of Cycling 1940s-70s, together with a collection of drink related posters and an impressive range of vintage Vermouth bottles.
Food is served throughout the day, kicking off with breakfast and moving on to a menu of sharing plates along the lines of Cornish sardines and Galician octopus and chickpeas. Away from the sea, you might see game terrine served with cranberry or slow cooked Welsh lamb with Autumn vegetables. For a sweet-toothed finale, it's worth saving room for one of the pastries such as Paris brest or maybe a rum baba.
Apart from serving an excellent cup of coffee, there's wine, beer, amaros, fernet and cocktails with an extensive range of Vermouth infused with botanicals to enhance the flavour.
