Harden's survey result
“The best food I’ve eaten this year!” – early reporters award the highest ratings to mould-breaking chef Nuno Mendes’s “fantastic” latest project: a 16-seater that opened without fanfare in April 2018, but which is one of the most culinarily interesting arrivals of recent times. “Hidden away, up a secret staircase in Redchurch Street”, it’s part of Shoreditch’s funky Blue Mountain School (‘an interdisciplinary space dedicated to nurturing engagements and interactions between diverse practices’… and also selling really expensive stuff). This new venture is a revival of sorts of Mendes’s Loft Project fine dining supper club, and it inspires ne’er a word of protest regarding the price tag – just first impressions of “an all-round excellent experience, from meeting Nuno and his brigade in the kitchen and eating snacks, to sitting down at a communal table and being served course after course of exceptional, innovative food. There is an impressive wine room too” and all-in-all it offers “a superb night out as well as a great concept”.
