German Gymnasium

German Gymnasium

Modern European | North London

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.

"...the formality, the hugeness, the single-sex parties, the flabby middle management at play, the something for everyone menu, the weary roll-out catering, the lack of interest in detail, the “convenient” location … It all just reminded me of Quaglino’s and Mezzo and Pont de la Tour and the Bluebird at the time of their simultaneous pomp and awful decline around the turn of the millennium."

"In its way, then, this is yet more exotic, multicultural cuisine that London should be able to take in its stride." READ REVIEW

"...this is best as a daytime place. We ate lunch in the café, and were thrilled by nearly every dish." READ REVIEW
