11/10 for originality to James Knappett and his “amazing” chef’s table, tucked away at the back of his and his wife’s adjoining hot dog place. “What an experience” – “a floor-show, gastronomical extravaganza and a bit of a mystery tour all combined. You’ll find out what the main ingredient in each course is, but not know what you’ll eat until it is presented to you by the chef”. “Seeing it prepared is revelatory” and the flavours “jump out on your tongue!”
“What a concept!” – you discover this “haven of gastronomy arranged around an open chef’s table” by walking through a curtain from the adjoining hot dog place; it’s a “unique” and “fascinating” experience – “great fun talking to the chef”, with cuisine that’s “imaginative, well-balanced, amusing, exciting… absolutely superb”.
“A unique dining experience”; this “phenomenal” Fitzrovian – a horseshoe-shaped chef’s table “secretively curtained” from the adjoining hot dog place – offers “passionate” service and course after course of “astonishingly clever food”, “theatrically” prepared “before your very eyes”.
“My most exciting restaurant experience in years!” – enter via the hot dog place to eat at this horseshoe-shaped chef’s table (19 seats), where James Knappett and his “brilliantly choreographed” chefs deliver a “stunning” 12-14 course dinner that’s “full of invention”, with wines from the “passionate” sommelier.
Bubbledogs, Kitchen Table Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Wonderful food, beautifully prepared in front of us and marvelously described as it was served. I was eating vegetarian and the staff explained individually to me each time what they had prepared. Also each time the origins of the food were well explained, very often being personally known or collected by the chef and on the whole deriving from the U.K. This was a surprise booking for us as a present. Absolutely amazing and highly recommended."
