Hicce | King’s Cross Restaurant
Pip Lacey, the former head chef at Café Murano, has moved on to newer pastures.
And there’s been a Hicce up in her plans.
Specifically, Hicce; her debut restaurant, run alongside long-term business partner, Gordon McIntyre. They’re set to settle down into the upcoming Coal Drops Yard development at King’s Cross; a sprawling industrial courtyard that already has the likes of Flat Iron, Barrafina and The Drop as confirmed residents.
Hicce will be a cosy space with room for 80, plus another 35 or so on the al fresco terrace out front. It’ll all be centred around a wood-fired grill, upon which Lacey and her team will cook up a menu of British food with a Japanese/Norwegian twist – so you can expect plenty of yakitori, pickles, cheese and rye bread.
The separate bar area, meanwhile, will be home to craft brews and small-batch, biodynamic wines…
So you may leave hicce-upping, too.
NOTE: Hicce is due to open in October – in the meantime, you can keep up with the developments at Pip Lacey’s Twitter account right HERE.
Like the sound of this place? Then head on down to Café Murano…
