Kentish town’s newest addition to its thriving dining scene has just launched a brand new eat-in menu.
And the good news is that readers can get an exclusive 15% off if they simply mention Kentishtowner when they book or sit down at Smoky Corner.
As we said in our last news story on the opening back in March, the new corner restaurant at 180 Kentish Town Road is the latest occupant of a truly landmark local building. Built as The Wolsey Tavern in 1896, the pub remained unchanged until 1993, when it was renamed Auntie Annie’s Porter House, with subsequent incarnations retaining variations of that name. Most recently it was the ornate, and slightly legendary, Annie’s Bar.
Earlier this year the venue, boarded up for several years, was finally given a new lease of life as a contemporary neighbourhood restaurant with a distinctive mauve exterior.
Its menu centres on a charcoal grill, and owner Tural, who used to run the rather lovely Natural plant-friendly store and cafe down the road, explained at the time that their mission is to serve locals impeccable American-style burgers – with a European touch.
“We’re on a journey to bring back this establishment to its former glory and deliver tasty dishes in the heart of Kentish Town,” he says.
The venue boasts a variety of unique spaces over two storeys. At ground level is a warm and welcoming dining room with open kitchen staffed by Head Chef Daniele Mingarelli and his team. Meanwhile, in the basement is a cosy dining room for functions such as birthday parties, private dining and Christmas parties.
