The Coal Shed London is set to welcome a line-up of celebrated chefs to its open kitchen at One Tower Bridge with a series of collaborative dinners held monthly throughout 2018. Each chef will produce an exclusive five-course menu for one service only. First up is Michael Bremner of “real Brighton star” 64 Degrees in the Lanes, which “serves tapas-size dishes prepared in front of you in the open kitchen”. He will bring his “fabulous food” to The Coal Shed, Tower Bridge, on Friday 26 January.
Bremner starred in BBC Two’s Great British Menu last year where he clinched a finalist spot and the prestigious honour to cook the main course at a banquet celebrating 140 years of Wimbledon.
Each visiting chef will collaborate with The Coal Shed London’s exec head chef Dave Mothersill, head chef Chris Ditch and head pastry chef Laura Petersen on a creative five-course menu. Diners will be welcomed by a drink on arrival before sitting down to a parade of dishes created collaboratively with The Coal Shed London team and the visiting guest chef.
The menu will celebrate ‘meat, fish and fire’. Standout dishes will include: monkfish, kelp butter, Jerusalem artichoke, mussel sauce and 71 day dry aged rump of Longhorn beef (to share), braised short rib, roasted hispi, bone marrow mash, hollandaise and truffle.To finish, guests can indulge in a rum and vanilla coal roasted pinapple, white chocolate and passion fruit parfait.
Each evening begins at 7 pm with advance booking required. The menu is priced at £55 pp with wine pairing available for an additional £30 pp. Dietary requirements can be catered for on early request.
Following Michael Bremner in January, The Coal Shed London will welcome Tom Brown (former Outlaw’s at The Capital, opening first restaurant Cornerstone in Hackney Wick) on Saturday 17 February and Pip Lacey (former Murano, opening first restaurant Hicce in London) on Saturday 24 March as the next chefs in the series.
