We had not heard of 06 St Chad's Place before and (at the time of writing) there are no blog posts on it either, but a short walk from King's Cross station, the venue is a very cool spot indeed if you like the whole converted warehouse feel (it is in fact a former mechanic's workshop - lucky mechanic!). The key feature is an impressive vaulted timber roof and with exposed brickwork plus old fashioned ceramic tiles on the walls, the place has genuine character.
It also feels nicely relaxed and seems like it would be a reasonable place to pass any Sunday with a drink and a newspaper. What's more, with the weather nice (is it summer yet?), the industrial size front door was set beautifully wide open giving an already airy room an even greater sense of space. Overhead windows also flood the interior with natural light.
Looking at St Chad's Place website, they serve food throughout the day including breakfast. Later in the day the food becomes tapas in style and prices look reasonable, with the (non tapas) St Chad's beef burger at a reasonable £7.50. However, with Cork Gourmet Guy in the kitchen, we didn't get to try the house burger as Dave had whipped up a half dozen of his own (well, five at least).
What's appealing about the Burger Breakout choices on offer here is that every burger embraces a different protein so you've got beef (of course), lamb, piggy, venison and even a fish burger (Dab), though the fish burger is in fact fillets in a baguette rather than a traditional burger but it is an undeniably thoughtful alternative.
We also like the fact that the meats and fish are sourced from Cornish Grill who do a great job promoting the excellent produce of Devon and Cornwall. Dave then takes the basic burger patty, piles it high and mighty with all sorts of extras and together with a side serving of chips (which themselves come with an interesting horseradish smoked salt), you have, once you've ordered a beer also of course, everything you need for a chilled out Sunday lunch/afternoon. Excellent.
