SEE ALTERNATIVE French Cuisine
After 15 successful years the Almeida restaurant closes on 1st January 2017 to be replaced by a brand-new Italian restaurant, created by Francesco Mazzei, in March 2017.
This popular D & D London (formerly Conran Restaurants) eatery is renowned as Islington's top restaurant, a much sought after plaudit given the area's sheer volume of places to eat, drink and make merry. The cuisine is traditional French with every dish infused with delicate and intense flavours. The menu offers contemporary British food devised by Head Chef Tommy Boland and changes regularly but the passion and commitment behind each dish never falters. The neutral decor lets the food speak for itself and unlike other former Conran restaurants, diners do not need to shout to make themselves heard. Class oozes from this restaurant's every pore with a stylish bar serving tapas-sized dishes and an excellent wine list adding the final polish.
