Summary

“One of the best experiences ever” – James Knappett’s “truly unique” venture, tucked away behind his and his wife’s adjoining hot dog place – is as “absolutely fascinating” as it is unexpected. Seated at stools around the 20-seat kitchen table creates “great intimacy with the team” and the daily changing 12-course array of dishes (“on the whole sourced from the UK, and very well explained”) are “from another world”. “It’s cosy, it’s unpretentious, it’s delicious, it’s friendly, it’s excellent value”.

Summary

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!”

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.
