On a busy corner of Notting Hill’s Westbourne Grove, behind a reinstated Georgian faí§ade, Granger & Co. has a relaxed and easy Australian vibe with food to match, and its popularity is evidenced by the long queues for brunch on the weekends. Working with Australian self-taught chef Bill Granger, Australian designers Meacham Nockles McQualter created an interior to reflect the nature of the food and to allow for easy gathering. “Simple and unpretentious, it was important that the restaurant didn’t feel European,” the designers say. “People love the relaxed nature of banquette seating, so we tried to get as many in as possible.”
