Monday 14 November sees the official opening date of The Common, NW10′s newest restaurant, terrace and bar. Housed in the world’s largest co-living building, The Collective Old Oak, The Common aims to reflect the communal ethos of The Collective’s living experience.

A restaurant, terrace and bar with a seasonal British menu it will serve simple, well sourced food and drinks focused on sharing.

Leading the kitchen is new Head Chef, Andre Miguel and key new dishes include Chef Andre’s Wedding Dish, flakes of lemon sole and cod with slow cooked cherry tomatoes, capers, red chilli and coriander £5 and Steak, Eggs n’ Chips – bavette steak (served medium-rare) Chimmi Churri, two fried eggs and fries £12.

The menu lends itself to sharing and Andre has created dishes that not only work better when shared but work out to be less expensive as well – the mushroom tagliatelle with wild mushrooms, parsley and truffle oil is £6 for one person, £10 for two and £15 for three so it makes sense to eat with friends and family.
