SquareMeal Review of Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs

SquareMeal London Hot 100 2018“Mind-blowing food, exceptional wines and perfect service” – that’s what punters can expect if they venture into this semi-secret dining space behind a leather curtain at the back of funky Bubbledogs. True to its name, Kitchen Table’s U-shaped counter fits snugly around the kitchen, where up to 20 diners can perch on stools, elbow-to-elbow with their neighbours, watching and listening to chef James Knappett’s team as they prepare (and often serve) the day’s Michelin-starred menu. Nibbles of chicken skin, bacon jam and rosemary mascarpone generally open the show, while each of the subsequent 12 courses is described by a single word on the blackboard (‘oyster’, ‘shrimp’, ‘potato’). That said, the results are bold, ultra-modern and revelatory: a dish simply entitled ‘scallop’ might see a fleshy raw bivalve in harmonious company with lightly pickled cucumber, elderflowers and a frothy elderflower kombucha (a fermented beverage). James’ partner/sommelier Sandia Chang takes care of Kitchen Table’s 100-bin wine list, which plunders the exclusive ‘grower’ Champagnes on offer at Bubbledogs next door. “A little pricey, but you really pay for what you get – namely quality”, concludes one reader.

For those of us that are a slave to our taste-buds, you will love this place! This is one of those dining experiences where you can feel your tongue get excited with each dish that is presented. 14 courses in all if you go for the truffle options! (which I wouldn't in future...but I will come to that later) The dishes are simple and simply presented but almost all of them are a flavour sensation; even the ones I was dubious about (liquorice). There is no menu, just a list of flavours that you will have for the evening and apart from 3 dishes (the extra truffle being one of them) there was nothing I did not absolutely love. Our friends went a few weeks prior and also did not enjoy the truffle dish and had warned us not to order it, we just ordered 1 to share and we were glad we did. There is a £15 supplement and it was not that amazing to be worth the extra expense. The concept is similar to the Loft Project: limited diners, 10 at each of the 2 evening seatings, that sit around a counter and have lovely food presented to them and each dish is explained by the chef. The menu changes regularly so you can go back and have a totally different experience. The wines by the glass were excellent and the servers were lovely, making the entire 4 hours spent there a wonderful experience. Will definitely be going back.
