Kentish Town’s hugely popular (and innovative) gelateria makes its frozen debut bang in the middle of King’s Cross next month.
Known for its classic, seasonal and playful flavours (things like liquorice, stilton, blood orange and Campari), not to mention artful interior and very long weekend queues, the Fortess Road shop will open a useful new kiosk just off Granary Square on May 14th.
“We’re still making all our ice cream by hand in NW5,” says founder Julie Fisher, “however King’s Cross will be a new glamorous yet urban parlour spreading the Ruby Violet offering a little further afield. We’ll have a sun-soaked outdoor seating area next to door to the Waitrose wine bar garden. And our table is being created from a large piece of wood from the bottom of the Panama Canal.”
Which all adds to the appeal of a lazy afternoon spent lounging around the fountains, or in the new park by the scrubbed-up towpath, eh?
