Borough Market's Arabica to launch King's Cross site

The operators of Borough Market's Arabica will open a second incarnation of the Levant-inspired restaurant in London's King's Cross later this year.

Drawing from influences from Istanbul to Tel Aviv, the restaurant will move into a 100-cover space in the Aga Khan centre, near the newly developed Coal Drops Yard. The corner of the Fumihiko Maki-designed building will include a 20-seat communal table and 40 additional covers on the exterior terrace.

Dishes are set to include Istanbul-style mussels with walnut tarator, beef cheek borekas and beef and bone marrow arayees. New vegetarian and plant-based offerings, including hummus KX with diced sweet peppers, red chilli, crushed garlic, fresh parsley and crunchy roasted spiced chickpeas, will also feature.

The restaurant's founder James Walters said: "We've been searching for the right neighbourhood to open in for a while and King's Cross offers a curious mix of shiny new buildings and repurposed industrial heritage which excites us.

"We've always been intentional about being part of a community, from our roots in Borough Market, so we're glad we took the time and found a place that we feel connected to and energised about being part of."
