Would like to eat at…
While I’ve mentioned that I now don’t keep a list of places that I’ll be going to in a particular year I’ve decided to deviate slightly from my promise and create a list of special places for special occasions like birthdays, new jobs and weekends away outside of London. I don’t plan on getting through this list anytime soon but it will at least give me somewhere to keep my thoughts; and equally for anyone wanting to take me out to dinner…
- Alyn Williams at The Westbury
A tasting menu with matching beer flight
Parent restaurant of current London favourite Roganic. Simon Rogan cooking the best of English produce in Cumbria
Nigel Howarth - a big guy cooking big flavours. I like big flavours
London outpost of renowned French chef Pierre Gagnaire
- The Dock Kitchen
A pop-up gone full time. Chef Stevie Parle and team travel the world and come back to cook what they've learnt and experienced.
- The Sportsman
A gastro pub that I'm told is worth taking a day off work to take the day down to Kent for, has been recommended me for years now.
- The Wild Garlic
One of the first of the new wave of Masterchef winners Mat Follas opened up shop in Dorset. He was a fave of mine on the show.
A restaurant that has been open for years but where chef Andrew Turner's food always seems modern and initiative. Looks pricey though...
