9 Islington Green, London N1 2XH

Chris Corbin and Jeremy King (The Wolseley, Zedel) brought back their Islington grand cafe after an earlier closure and it's been more popular than ever. There's been a shift in the menu away from Alsace and towards more of a traditional French brasserie and it's one of the largest restaurants in Angel too.

Black Axe Mangal
156 Canonbury Road, London N1 2UP
Critic reviews - total score out of 10

Lee Tiernan's Black Axe Mangal has made a small site on Highbury Corner into - in our opinion - one of the best restaurants in London. With metal and rock music blaring out on the speakers, it's certainly unlike much else in town. It's described as 'an unauthentic, bastardised take of Turkish Mangal and Ocakbasi, with global influences.' Post pandemic, it's returned with a new look, and a new set menu that changes regularly while still featuring some of the classics like their squid ink bread.

The D&D restaurant group took over a site that used to be the first ever gym in London - a huge imposing building just outside St Pancras. They've replaced that gym with what is pretty much the opposite, a huge restaurant and bar space. Expect plenty of German food and booze on the menu - brasserie-style downstairs and more of a fine-dining approach upstairs.

Dishoom is ALWAYS packed. Its take on Bombay cafe culture ensures long waits and queues at all their restaurants. This King's Cross restaurant is busy in the evening and for weekend brunch, but you can easily book for lunch. Its cavernous interior also makes it one of the largest in the group. But once settled down inside, you'll see why people keep coming back for its excellent Indian small plates.

This restaurant on the borders of Islington and Stoke Newington, was the first from the group that also brought us Westerns Laundry and Jolene. As with their other restaurants, there's a regularly changing menu - influenced by Parisian Bistronomy - and it's paired with a carefully selected wine list that's also regularly updated.

Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The original opened up in Exmouth Market to great reviews and they haven't looked back since. Now in multiple locations across town, this was Caravan's second opening, and one of the first places to open on Granary Square. Coffee remains a big thing, supplied by their nearby roastery. Food-wise, they serve what they call a "food well-travelled" menu all-day and their brunch is one of the most popular in town.

The Gate first started in London over 30 years ago, long before vegetarian and vegan menus became a big thing. They've been serving up quality vegetarian fare for years and have earned a big following as a result. As you'd expect, much of the food is plant-based and there's a strong vegan selection too (and their wine list is entirely vegan).

Probably Islington's most famous restaurant, this Italian affair sees Jordan Frieda, formerly front-of-house at The River Cafe teaming up with chef Tim Siadatan (the same team behind Padella).
