In keeping with its year of changes, The Design Museum – newly located on Kensington High Street – is keeping food lovers on their toes at its restaurant, Parabola. In among the short-term chef residencies that characterise the restaurant’s evening service, highly sought after guest chefs – from Michelin-starred titans to TV cookery stars and pop ups that have caught the public’s imagination – have been invited to take to the stoves for one or two nights only. Book a meal with your favourite chef now.
The lineup is as follows:
Monday 30 January: The Walnut Tree’s Shaun Hill serves his brand of seasonal, modern British food
Tuesday 31 January: Marianne Lumb, chef-patron of Marianne, which houses 14 of London’s most sought-after tables, brings her personal brand of fine dining to Parabola
Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 February: The Paris Pop Up, a pop up on tour from two chefs who met while working at the très en vogue Frenchie, make a pits top here
Friday 3 and Saturday 4 February: Restaurateur (and co-founder of the original Design Museum) Sir Terence Conran and his wife Lady Vicki don their pinnies for a night behind the pass
Then, from Monday 6 February, Parabola’s current chef in residency Rowley Leigh will hand over the apron strings to TV chef Valentine Warner, who will unveil a seasonal menu inspired by his grandmothers’ cooking – available until Friday 31 March.
