Lakeland-based uber-chef Simon Rogan’s eight-seater development kitchen offers “a fascinating and unique experience”, featuring “some of the most creative dishes in London”. Diners pre-book (at £195 a head) and go to a secret Soho address, where a dozen surprise courses and paired wines are prepared in front of them by two chefs. “We went for our anniversary but the other six diners pulled out; what could have been awkward became a once-in-a-lifetime exclusive pampering!”.
“Simon Rogan’s development kitchen offers a unique and unforgettable experience” that’s “even better than his Claridge’s iteration”. Its secret location is revealed only on booking, with pre-payment expected (for food and wine pairings). Despite an entry level cost for the evening – wherein two chefs cook for 8 diners in a relatively small room around a chef’s table – of upwards of £200 per head, all reporters agree, it’s “an all-round exceptional performance”. On the menu: new dishes, before they are potentially served at Roganic.
