Founded in 1944, Lina Stores celebrated its 75thanniversary last month.  The Italian deli launched its first pasta restaurant last summer with Masha Rener at the helm.

As first reported by the Evening Standard, the new site will be located on Granary Square in “one of King’s Cross’s last remaining heritage buildings”.

Offering both a deli and a restaurant with 100 covers, Lina Stores’ expansion has been supported by investment from Chris Miller’s White Rabbit Fund. The investor is also behind chef Andrew Wong’s Kym’s in the Bloomberg Arcade, modern Indian restaurant brand Kricket, and Island Poke.

The menu is set to feature osso bucco ravioli with bone marrow butter and duck egg yolk; tagliolini with parmesan and fresh truffles; and beef cheeks in Barolo alongside seasonal fish, seafood, and vegetarian dishes.

Desserts will include a rum baba; torta Genoese; monte bianco; crostata di frutta; tiramisu; cannoli; torta Caprese; and a selection of home-made gelato.

Head chef, Masha Rener, said: “Over the course of its 75-year history, Lina Stores has become a beacon for Italian culinary culture in London and I’m so proud to be a part of it.

“It’s been a really exciting year opening our restaurant on Greek Street, uncovering traditional recipes found across Italy, as well as celebrating Lina’s age-old recipes and my own family’s. We’ll be adding even more to our menu in King’s Cross and I can’t wait to open our doors later this year.”

Lina Stores King’s Cross will open this autumn.
