where you need to eat right now

King is run by two queens, Clare and Jess, who spent ten years at River Café in London and when they wanted to open up their own restaurant and fry their sage leaves elsewhere, they knew they had to move city. And lucky Gotham. It's a small menu, changing errrry day, that brings the absolute best of Italy to plates on beautiful white table cloths. The vegetables, sharing mains (often a game bird), and the roast fish are always safe bets, and if in truffle season, ask kindly to have it on everything. And they would probably frown at this, but the desserts are the best, just like Ruth and Rose at “the caf” taught them.
