Pasero | Popular Supper Club Turned Neighbourhood Dining Hotspot
Seven Sisters – that patch of North London that was named after a circle of elm trees (not female siblings, nuns, or people doing it for themselves) – has just landed itself a new neighbourhood hotspot.
It’s called Pasero, and it’s just a short walk from the tube station. It’s one of those 3-in-1 projects that just tick every box; tripling up as an excellent restaurant, wine bar & deli for N15 locals, and those that find themselves up North. By day, Pasero offers freshly baked loaves, pastries, and cups of coffee while you answer some emails. Come the evening, it transforms into an intimate-but-not-too-intense date spot. And during all of this, you can get the dishes that made the original Pasero supper club so successful, thanks to owner Genevieve Sparrow.
Inside it’s all a very mid-century interior design. The space works a deep olive ceiling with about a dozen sphere pendant lights. The interior is jazzed up with a lot of warm, earth tones; glazed terracotta tiling supports the padded wall seats, a mid-century sideboard greets you on your way to the loo, and behind the bar are large, teak open cabinets decked out with many bottles of wine & general deli delights (which you can absolutely take home). It feels like a laid-back a 1970s home… that happens to have waiters.
On the food front, they’ve got ex-Peckham Cellars & Crispin chef, Henry Freestone in residency until March having taken over from Pip MacDonald, previously at J.Sheekey, Scott’s, Cafe Murano, and Levan. So, it’s safe to say they’ve got their hands on people that know what they’re doing in the kitchen.
He’s put together an ever-changing blackboard menu of small plates (with a few mains) perfect for sharing. His seasonal menu includes the likes of cauliflower cheese arancini; winter squash topped with whipped gorgonzola, pickled shallots, and fried crumbs; and succulent braised beef cheek with Dragon stout alongside parmesan polenta.
You may have guessed from the number of bottles on display, but these guys know their wine. And as anyone who knows their wine these days knows, the best stuff right now is low intervention wines. So, all that deliciousness can be enhanced or washed down with a glass or two of wine on tap by Uncharted, or perhaps a bottle of unfiltered bubbles.
Doesn’t that sound good.
NOTE: Pasero is open daily from morning until late. You can find out more or book a table right here.
