Part grocery, part indoor restaurant, part luxury, waterproof canal-side encampment, Joy is a pop-up/residency at the northern end of Ladbroke Grove focused on seafood and fire. A totally private, totally heated, and totally covered pavilion on this W10 courtyard is the perfect summer-ready spot for intimate birthdays and other small-scale celebrations, and a wood-grilled lobster with wild garlic butter the perfect order. While you’re at it, don’t skip the margaritas or the plump the gnudi starter.
JOY is permanently closed.
