If you are reading this, you’ve been just told that a table at Dishoom will be available ‘within’ 10 hours, and now you’re wondering if it’s worth just grabbing a bite at the very swish looking Granary Square Brasserie a couple of doors down? Easy answer: it’s not. Well, unless you’re starving and don’t mind paying a premium for your run-of-the-mill re-heated cash-and-carry classics. Yes, we know you’re starving but crawl over to Caravan, or Granger & Co for the fresher versions of the food here, and for more style for your money there’s German Gymnasium. But if you do need something to quench your thirst before your epic journey across the square, then it is actually worth grabbing a drink at the swanky bar.
