The D&D group (of Terence Conran & company fame) has gone and created another classic a la Skylon, Bluebird, etc. This time it’s in King’s Cross which is going through a major regeneration with Google among its new tenants-to-be. In what used to be the German Gymnasium—the first purpose-built gym in the UK from way back in the 1860’s—they’ve set up an eponymous all-day restaurant that’s perfectly placed to serve all the EuroStar travelers heading to Paris from St. Pancras across the street. Fittingly, it feels like a gateway to old Europe, where the Sekt and Champagne flow and Schnitzel and Sauerkraut is served in what feels like an elegant Viennese café (with a modern twist). The hulking space has been beautifully reinterpreted.
