Lina Stores to open new site at King's Cross
From autumn, Lina Stores will be situated in King’s Cross which marks 75 years since the Italian delicatessen first opened in Soho.
Housed within a Victorian transit shed behind Granary Square, the new location will build on the Soho success with its deli and restaurant now under one roof for the first time ever.
The deli at Lina Stores King’s Cross will feature the traditional Lina green and white stripes and will be stocked with Italian pantry goods.
Marina Dentamaro, who has managed the deli at 18 Brewer Street for 10 years, said: “Lina Stores has always welcomed Italians seeking a taste of home, people travelling to visit and Londoners who return again and again to stock up on quality Italian ingredients.
“We can’t wait to have a restaurant and deli all under one roof in King’s Cross. It is an honour to be part of the history and tradition of Lina Stores.
“Over the course of its 75-year history, Lina Stores has become a beacon for Italian culinary culture in London and I’m so proud to be a part of it. It’s been a really exciting year opening our restaurant on Greek Street, uncovering traditional recipes found across Italy, as well as celebrating Lina’s age-old recipes and my own family’s.
Housed within one of King’s Cross’ last remaining heritage buildings, the 100-cover site designed in collaboration with Red Deer architects will combine Lina Stores’ style with the recognisable Lina green and white stripes.
The traditional menu will focus on fresh pasta and include signature dishes from Brewer and Greek Street alongside new ones.
