Review on Isla at The Standard

The Standard sits opposite St Pancras station in King's Cross, housed in the former Camden Town Hall Annex. The 1974 Brutalist building has undergone a complete renovation and is now the sixth establishment in Standard International's portfolio, and its first outside America. The building has been heightened by a new glass extension and there's also a bright red glass lift on the outside of the hotel that goes directly to the Decimo restaurant by Michelin-starred Chef, Peter Sanchez-Iglesias.

The ground floor is home to the Isla restaurant and the Double Standard bar with Executive Chef Adam Rawson, YBF Chef of the Year in 2015, and the former Head Chef of Peruvian restaurant Pachamama pulling the strings. Designed by Shawn Hausman in a retro-style, the interiors feature a kaleidoscope of colours, a plant filled space with walls covered with tactile shag carpeting. When the weather obliges there's also an outdoor space with a retractable awning, perfect for summer aperitifs and al fresco dining.

While the Isla restaurant focuses on a seasonal menu reflecting Britain's wide-ranging coastal cuisine, the bar serves more traditional pub fare in the shape of boards, small and large plates. When it comes to the restaurant menu why not kick off with Islay-cured salmon and wild caper before moving on to an aged beef chop, served with a green peppercorn sauce and finishing with a toasted amaranth tart, cacao nibs and blueberry.

The wine list emphasises natural wines and there's also seasonal cocktails to accompany the menu.
