What: Fink's Gillespie

In a nutshell: Popular Highbury spot expands their N5 empire

Summing it all up: The duo behind neighbourhood favourite Fink's Salt & Sweet are expanding - but they're not going far. Their second place will be a coffee shop on nearby Gillespie Road.

The low-down

Having been closed for most of lockdown, Fink's Gillespie - the new sibling cafe to Fink's Salt & Sweet reopens its doors today. Mat told Hot Dinners: "We’ll be keeping it as a take away, but have a new menu of toasties coming on here, as well as grab and go salads and grain bowls, home baked cakes, Dusty Knuckle breads and other treats."

The toasties include Fondue Mark 2 (Wiltshire ham, 3 cheeses and a white wine bechamel),  The Pizza Pie (roast tomato sauce with buffalo mozzarella and basil) , Muhammara  (roast aubergine and feta) and the very appealing sounding French Onion Soup Toastie (Confit and roast onions with gruyere).

On the launch menu you'll also find 

  • Chicken Shawarma with a pearl barley chopped salad & Tehina
  • Fatoush with zataar croutons and feta
  • Roast spiced carrot salad with labne & toasted nuts.

It'll actually be the first time both Finks have been open at the same time.
