Coal Office Restaurant
Chef Assaf Granit and British Designer Tom Dixon are masters of their own worlds. Coal Office is their food and design playground – rich in material, style and flavour. Together they complement one another and push the boundaries.
The Coal Office is a restaurant collaboration between acclaimed chef Assaf Granit and Tom Dixon, created by our own interior design corporation Design Research Studio. It is also a laboratory for us to test out new ideas in comfort, luminosity, in tableware and in interior design. It operates on three floors of our brand-new headquarters in London's King's Cross, and infuses our whole studio with positive energy and delicious food.
The Coal Office Restaurant is a singular exploration of both dishes and design. Each standalone, carefully curated menu explores the flavours, spices, and textures of the traditional, Mediterranean family sharing style. Understanding that exquisite produce and the highest level of design are necessary to offer a unique restaurant experience, the Coal Office Restaurant introduces something unmatched by London’s restaurant scene.
You can book a table at Assaf Granit and Tom Dixon's restaurant on coaloffice.com.
The Coal Office restaurant is located next to Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross London, with a roof terrace and outdoor seating.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic we changed tack. Our restaurant changed in function but not in spirit. We continued to work with our suppliers and setup the Fresh Food Hub. Posting recipes, selling fresh fruit and veg as well as homemade soups, sandwiches and sundries too. And providing home delivery and takeaway food for local residents.
The fresh food hub, named the Coal Office Industry remains open offering our specialist and delicious middle eastern cuisine for takeaway, collection and delivery.
“Our ambition is to create sharper flavours and surroundings. It’s rough and raw, but in a polished way. Our instinct was anchored by a single thought; to offer an active and engaged experience beyond just eating” explains Granit.
“Coal Office’s concept is distinct; born from a direct connection to the kitchen. A complete collaboration between design and cooking; this is an active and engaged experience beyond just eating. Chef Assaf Granit’s idea was to deconstruct the kitchen, with cooking and prepping across three floors, and with everybody involved in cooking – from waiters to guests themselves. The result? A dining playground which is half kitchen, half dining. Each guest to Coal Office is witness to an entirely different experience – seeing it from their own unique angle or vista” remarks Tom.
