Tufnell Park Tavern @ Tufnell Park

2週間前にオープンしたばかりのガストロ・パブ、Tufnell Park Tavern(タフネル・パーク・タバーン)。近所に住む友人のお薦めで行ってみた。店内は、伝統的なロースト料理や地中海風メニュー等、きちんとした食事を出すパブ・エリアと、軽食やお茶の出来るデリに分かれていて、パブはダークブラウンを基調とした伝統的なパブのインテリア、打って変わって、デリはミント・グリーンの壁にカントリー調のテーブルや椅子で明るくまとめられている。また、天気の良い日は、外のガーデン席に座って、太陽の光を満喫するのもいい。

パブ、デリともに、オープン・キッチンで作られる料理やデザート類は、フレッシュな材料を使ってしっかりと作られていて、パブと言えど飲み物だけではもったいない。ぜひお腹も空かして行きたい。私たちは、今日は、デリでピザをオーダー。オーブンから出てきたばかりのピザは、熱々でパリッとしていて、Mは今までロンドンで食べたピザの中で一番というほど。ブルーベリー・マフィンも、甘さ控えめで、しっとりしていて美味しかった。

We went to Tufnell Park Tavern, just opened two weeks ago, as my friend who lives nearby recommended as a great gastro pub. The inside is divided into pub area, where you can have a proper meal such as traditional roast and Mediterranean inspired dishes, and deli area where you can have a light meal and a cup of tea/coffee. The pub area decorated with dark wood in good taste is traditional pub-ish and quite impressive. On the other hand, the interior of the deli is more cheerful and bright, with peppermint green walls and country-style furniture. There is also garden seating area and it is quite busy when it’s sunny.

The food and desert for both pub and deli, cooked in the open kitchen, are fresh and great, as my friend told me – you should difinately go there with an empty stomach, instead of just having a drink. We ordered pizza at deli counter today. Freshly baked pizza was popping hot and crunchy, and M said that the pizza was the best he ever had in London. Blueberry muffin was not too sweet and lovely as well.
