With eyepopping interiors by Tom Dixon and food by Palomar chef and restaurateur Assaf Granit, this was the first restaurant to open at Coal Drops Yard. If you're up at the counter, it's a scene quite familiar from The Palomar - Jerusalem-inspired food served up by a lively kitchen. They also have a handy bar - and outside space - on the first floor.
