Square Meal Review of Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs ?

One reader who was expecting some hot dogs at Bubbledogs ended up being blown away by the “very special” tasting menu served in this exclusive 19-seater venue at the back of the place. The Kitchen Table is a showcase for chef/proprietor James Knappett’s take on high-end contemporary cooking, and he has already picked up a Michelin star for his efforts. Lucky diners can look forward to plenty of surprises as the team chat their way through the evening’s offerings: single-word descriptions give nothing away (‘oyster’, ‘asparagus’, ‘goat’, ‘orange’), but notable successes have ranged from chicken skin with grilled onion and burrata milk to a combo of hay, strawberry, malt and sweet cicely. “I remember loving every single thing I ate”, comments one contented diner. Matching wines include plenty of lesser-known names from small producers, as well as Bubbledogs’ signature ‘grower’ Champagnes. Booking essential.

  1. Kitchen Table is at Bubbledogs, a champagne and hotdog bar in Fitzrovia. The dual venue is by  husband and wife team, Sandia Chang and James Knapett, as sommelier and chef both have considerable experience at some of the best restaurants in the world. When booking I was assured by Sandia that vegetarians were gladly catered for, with a vegetarian menu created for my wife to match the evenings menu.Friday night at Bubbledogs is a popular affair, with a queue of bright young things stretching out the door into Charlotte Street. We had arrived early hoping for a glass of champagne to start the night off not knowing about...

    edge and spoon :: Kitchen Table

    When was the last time a plate of food really smacked you in the face and yelled “eat me, eat me”? How about two plates? How about fourteen? Kitchen Table does away with the three-pronged dining approach and instead offers a daily-changing, multi-course gastronomic extravaganza. Alright, a tasting menu (£78). Husband-and-wife team James Knappett (chef) and Sandia Chang (front of house) have more experience than you can shake a wooden spoon at (Per Se, Noma, The Berkeley, The Ledbury, Roganic), and it shows: their food is damn near perfect...

    Elizabeth On Food :: Bubbledogs

    Last summer James Knappett (head chef) and Sandia Chang (restaurant manager/sommelier) opened their restaurant Bubbledogs on Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, London. Bubbledogs has a concept that is unique in London: gourmet hotdogs served with grower champagnes. The dogs and champagne combo was an instant hit...

    Drifting Epicure :: Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs

    Hidden behind the heavy curtains at the back of Bubbledogs it’s either by chance or word of mouth that you might stumble upon Kitchen Table, a 19 seat and 13 course dining experience in Fitzrovia. Part of the same restaurant, the two dining concepts can’t be more different but it works out quite well judging the queue for Bubbledogs and the number of fully booked days in the Kitchen Table online booking system.

    Kitchen Table was launched shortly after the opening of Bubbledogs in 2012 by husband-and-wife team James Knappett (the chef) and Sandia Chang (restaurant manager/sommelier)...

    Munch My Way :: Kitchen Table, Fitzrovia

    Kitchen Table is the “&” of Bubbledogs, the revolutionary place to pair hotdogs with champagne… What's different of Kitchen Table is the cuisine and the direction of where it's heading.

    The restaurant offers the Kitchen Table experience of the food being prepared right in front you and while enjoying the food, you get to talk to the man behind it...

  1. Imagine you’re an up and coming young chef (James Knappett), you’ve worked at the top end of international fine dining at Noma, Per Se and Marcus Wareing, and your wife is the sommelier at Simon Rogan’s Roganic (Sandia Chang). Maybe over a coffee the two of you are idly dreaming about opening your own place. You want to create something different-something with strong branding and good margins that will draw in the punters…and so Bubbledogs was born, a surreal and inspired fusion of gourmet hot dogs with grower champagne. But Knappett had a cunning plan and sitting at the back of the fizz and dog emporium is his intimate...

  1. Last weekend I had a real treat. Some time at the end of last year a plan was made to visit The Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs, a chef's table run by James Knappett that won its first Michelin star last year. Obviously, with a Michelin star comes a long waiting list, so we weren't able to get a Saturday night reservation until last weekend. 10 of us had a booking for 7.30. The Kitchen Table has 2 sittings each evening,with the first group of 10 arriving at 6.30 and the next arriving at 7.30, and each group sitting round half of the counter that wraps around the central kitchen. When I heard there were 2 sittings I was...
