The definitive guide to London dining & events

...Chef's Tables

Date: 19.11.10 Category:

“Inspiring, exciting and exclusive, chef's tables offer the ultimate culinary experience. And you might even be allowed to lick the spoon.”

Whether you want to mark a special occasion, experience the buzz of a working kitchen, or just witness a culinary master at work, Chef's Tables offer unique, intimate insights into the heart of London's most exciting kitchens.

Located in the depths of The Dorchester, The Krug Room offers an impressive viewpoint of an enormously exciting hotel kitchen. Also situated within an exciting kitchen is the chef's table at Corrigan's where diners can meet the team and enjoy a delicious tasting menu behind a glass screen. On a smaller scale, Les Trois Garcons offers a private room off the kitchen in the atmospheric wine cellar, exuding rustic charm. Not so private is the chef's table at Automat which is within the hub of this relaxed and vibrant restaurant.

For something totally unique, Launceston Place allows diners into the private dining room to watch Chef Tristan Welch at work via a live plasma screen, whereas the Chef's Table at The Only Running Footman is in a private kitchen where the Chef will cook a bespoke meal just for you.

Intimate and with a view of the kitchen, the Chef's Table at Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley is a treat for culinary connoisseurs. Likewise both Gordon Ramsay at Claridges and Maze offer Chef's Tables in the midst of the action, from where you can enjoy a bespoke menu.  

On the other end of the scale, The Chef's Table at The Mall Tavern offers a relaxed, informal and interactive experience, with the chef even allowing you to join in should the mood take you. The 'Kitchen Table' at Trinity in Clapham offers a low-key, interactive experience, and Bocca Di Lupo has the 'Chef's Counter' where diners can watch the chefs at work.
