Barrafina and Casa Pastor, Coal Drops Yard
Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross is set to become London’s latest foodie hub when a slew of new restaurants and bars open in the development this month. Among the newbies will be three sites from the Harts Group – the restaurant group behind Barrafina, Quo Vadis and El Pastor – led by Sam and James Hart and Crispin Somerville.
Their fourth Barrafina site will have 34 covers and an outdoor terrace seating 60. Details are being kept under wraps but we’re expecting classics like their unbeatable tortilla, croquetas and pata negra jamón to make an appearance. Taco joint Casa Pastor, an 80-cover big sister to the popular original El Pastor in Borough Market, will serve churros and features an outdoor seating area with a rotisserie called Plaza Pastor.
