You’ve been served: Coal Office, London

Food and fashion – two of our favourite things. And you’ll experience both when you step into Coal Office, a ‘food and design playground’ created by Tom Dixon Studio and esteemed chef Assaf Granit, based in cool urban venue Coal Drops Yard.

What to expect at Coal Office

The interiors at this three-storey restaurant are rich – intentionally so. They’re designed to match the flavourful, sharp menu and help create an experience beyond eating, while simultaneously juxtaposing the Victorian building they’re based in. It’s a treat for the senses, and one that includes radical lighting concepts, contrasting industrial materials and textures, and a slick palette of neutrals, copper and pops of green marble. What else would you expect from Tom Dixon Studio? Despite being set across three floors, the layout feels seamless thanks to a uniting design vision and lots of light. And the unique blend of rustic and modern accents reflect the sharing platters you can expect to enjoy – on one of two outdoor terraces perfect for summers in the city, or in the private dining spaces.

What’s on the menu at Coal Office

Sharp, rough flavours at Coal Office reflect the ‘polished yet raw’ look of the restaurant space. And to achieve it, chef Assaf Granit has crafted an inventive Middle Eastern menu – one that combines the traditional, flavourful taste of the region with a new, modern twist. Dishes are served family style, which means sharing platters designed to be enjoyed with friends. And while the choices are pretty healthy, don’t be fooled – flavour is in full force, thanks to chef Assaf Granit’s Israeli heritage. Dropping in for lunch? Get ready to sample everything from piquant salads to sea bass.
