Lina Stores to open new deli site at King’s Cross
Lina Stores, which runs a famous Italian delicatessen and a pasta restaurant in London’s Soho, has unveiled plans to open a unit in King’s Cross as it marks 75 years of trading.
The new deli, which will feature Lina’s signature green and white stripes, will be housed within a Victorian transit shed behind Granary Square, one of King’s Cross’ last remaining heritage buildings.
It will be the first Lina location to have a deli and restaurant under the same roof.
Italian pantry essentials will be stocked in the deli, while salami, cheeses, antipasti and fresh pasta will be available to eat-in or take away along with made-to-order sandwiches. There will also be an espresso bar.
The restaurant, which comprises 100 covers across sunken booths and long banquette-style seating, will offer a traditional menu focusing on fresh pasta made in-house by staff, to provide some in-store experience for customers.
There will also be signature dishes from Lina Stores’ other outlets alongside new dishes, as well as a traditional Italian dessert trolley and a wine list consisting of organic and biodynamic bottles.
Marina Dentamaro, who managed the business’s deli at 18 Brewer Street for a decade, said: “Lina Stores has always welcomed Italians seeking a taste of home, people travelling to visit from across the UK and Londoners who return again and again to stock up on quality Italian ingredients.”
