Squaremeal Review of Kitchen W8 ?

Hidden away in the backstreets off High Street Ken, this "outstanding" neighbourhood restaurant comes courtesy of two heavyweights of the London dining scene: Phil Howard (The Square) and Rebecca Mascarenhas (Sonny's Kitchen). So it's no surprise that standards are sky-high, combining "unprissy" contemporary cooking with handsome green fabric banquettes and an eye-catching art collection that leaves you feeling as if you're in a well-to-do friend's "private home". From start to finish, "top-value" seasonal dishes are balanced to perfection: truffled veal tartare with broad beans, citrus crumbs, girolles and pea shoots; eye-catching roast cod with mussels, borlotti beans, courgette, tomato, lemon and parsley; strawberries with set vanilla custard, shortbread and basil (a refined taste of English summer on a plate). Superb wines by the glass cover a lot of ground, Sunday lunch is a terrific occasion and the "incredibly friendly" staff clearly enjoy their work. Above all, this "real jewel" gets the local feel spot on.

    I had heard a great deal about Kitchen W8. Apparently a new up and coming restaurant. Time to put it to the test.

    I went with a friend and we decided to split the set lunch choices so one of us would go for the sea theme courses and the other, the more land based animals...

    ivy eats again. :: Kitchen W8, London | ivy eats again.

    Unlike other Michelin starred restaurants, Kitchen W8 main brief is to bring affordable priced food to the local community. The word "affordable" certainly ticked the box for us, being a relatively somewhat cheaper than most of the michelin starred restaurants that I have encountered. Kitchen W8 seems to be unknown to the public, located just off Kensington High Street.

    This would be a place that I know would not sort of take a massive whack on my bank account to treating Mr. T's birthday celebration. The restaurant is bright and modern, white table lining cloths that is not overly too posh but still filled...

    Scotland Eats Out :: Scotland Eats Out: review; Kitchen W8

    Kitchen W8 is described and has based its values on being a neighbourhood restaurant, I am not sure about you but for me this is not your typical “neighbourhood” establishment. Located in upper class area Kensington and part owned by two michelin star chef Philip Howard, this straight away makes it a cut above any other neighbourhood restaurant I have eaten within. A visit to London to catch up with an old school friend, created the perfect opportunity to experience some of the culinary delights that London has to offer (again)...

    LUNCHING ABOVE OUR WEIGHT :: Kitchen W8: Restaurant Review | Lunching Above Our Weight

    We have done something deviant, dear readers – and we’re not sure you’re going to like it. We have betrayed the founding premise of this publication (loosely termed) and have consumed a meal in the evening, making a mockery of the very title of this lunch-themed blog. But what a way to undermine our integrity – our meal at Kitchen W8 was an absolute treat, and if it weren’t for a worrying lack of funds, we could have been fully converted to this dinner nonsense. A rather smart looking, pristinely white affair, we were briefly concerned that Chris’s jeans which had recently been accidentally slit open with a box cutter...

    Food Expectations :: Food Expectations Kitchen W8 Review

    Kitchen W8 is another restaurant that was so close to our previous flat, we ended up never visiting but as soon as we moved away, a friend suggested it for dinner and we jumped right on it!
    Kitchen W8 has a Michelin star but is more affordable than other restaurants with the same pedigree. Most starters ranged from &9-13 and mains were &20-30.
