Galley, an exciting, new seventy-cover, contemporary restaurant and bar specialising in small and large international plates with a strong focus on fresh fish opens today in the heart of Islington at 105-106 Upper Street, Islington N1 1QN.
Galley is the brainchild of siblings Oriona Robb and Marcel Grzyb. Oriona is one of London’s most respected stylists while Marcel, her brother, initially a self taught chef, has been the Head Chef at Soho’s Randall & Aubin for the past 10 years.
Polish born and bred, Marcel takes his inspiration for his launch menu at Galley from the cooking styles and flavours of North Africa, Asia, South America and Europe. His love of creative cooking, expertise in fish and his eye for detail is evident when glancing over the exceptional list of dishes, which includes: Hand dived in-shell Scottish scallops, carrot, cardamom purée and toasted hazelnuts; Brixham John Dory, spinach, romanesco, cauliflower purée, saffron & mussel sauce; Lobster pappardelle, heritage tomatoes, Jerusalem artichokes or Scottish venison, smoked potato puree, braised cabbage and thyme gravy.
There is also a stunning bar with an inspirational list of cocktails, wines and beers.
