London Supper Clubs
If you’re over the London restaurant scene, or want to have a more authentic dining experience with your date, trying a supper club is a fantastic idea. You’ll come across unique locations and menus that you can’t get anywhere else, plus the opportunity to drink and dine with a diverse range of people.
Rosie Llewellyn of food blog A Little Lusciousness had been a private function chef for a while before deciding to run supper clubs from her beautiful west London home. Through Grub Club, a website for pop up eateries, Rosie advertises her regular suppers which are usually four course feasts featuring seasonal British produce. Guests are welcomed with a cocktail and anything else they want to drink it’s BYOB. Sometimes they come in friendship pairs or couples on dates, or sometimes guests arrive solo. It’s always a great mix, and the conversation flows around the table.
Other Grub Club featured chefs include The Story Tellers – an Ottolenghi trained chef and a Vogue magazine set designer who have joined together to create wonderfully colourful feasts; Pratap Chahal who trained with Gordon Ramsay and creates suppers based on life in London and his Indian heritage; and Sam Herlihy and James Ramsden who run informal monthly supper clubs from their Pidgin restaurant. These charity fundraisers allow them to give their chefs a night off so they can do the cooking.
If the thought of a dinner party with a difference appeals to you as a great date, other London supper club sites to check include London Pop Ups, Edible Experiences, and Time Out.
