Perhaps somewhat reflecting its “sustainable” dishes, furniture is subtly assembled to create a charming warehouse effect. Located in a casual cool industrial building that can be found just over Regent’s Canal, next to Central Saint Martins at Granary Square, Grain Store serves innovative yet amazing food. Schooled in French tradition but not one to shy away from international-influences, Bordeaux-born Chef Bruno Loubet from France, co-owns this venture with Michael Benyan and Mark Sainsbury, and is evidently not afraid to experiment with imagination. From the pumpkin raviolis to the intriguing ice-cream flavours (Chamomile!), dinner was quite the palate party. Vegetarian-friendly, it is not just the meat dishes that get the spotlight.
On the brunch menu too is a veg-centric mix of innovation that remains different from your standard brunch joint. After a hearty Saturday brunch consisting of the Potato pancake with sour cream leeks, poached duck egg & Tobiko wasabi caviar, and Seeded scone, vegemite whipped butter, herb fromage frais, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs dish, we ordered desserts despite having almost run out of stomach room. A plate of warm chocolate & red bean pudding and toasted oat & buttermilk panna cotta later, we had no regrets.
