A new bar and restaurant focusing on ethically-sourced British food in an environmentally-conscious setting is to open in London's King's Cross.
T.E.D (Think.Eat.Drink) will open in June and is the brainchild of sustainable consultancy founder Jamie Grainger-Smith. The 2,800 sq ft space will have100 seats spread over two floors, and offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, with brunch until 4pm at the weekends.
Drinks will include freshly-squeezed juices, smoothies and "power shakes", while the wine list will offer biodynamic and carbon-neutral options. There will also be alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.
The décor has been designed by DrieDee International and The House With, for an interior including salvaged furniture, reclaimed tiles, up-cycled tables and chair, a lava-top bar counter and re-used stained glass windows.
Having launched the T.E.D consultancy in 2005, Grainger-Smith has worked on eco-friendly strategies for the River Café, with Jamie Oliver on his Fifteen restaurants, and on Acorn House, King's Cross and Waterhouse in London's Hoxton.
Speaking of his new project, he said: "My goal is to create a feel-good neighbourhood restaurant with delicious food and exemplary serviceâ¦ I look forward to creating a forward-thinking experience about the food and drink we love to enjoy."
