Having often been labelled as a rustic, homely option, supper clubs are becoming high-end and polished.The clandestine clubs can be the place to discover new chefs, trial a latest culinary creation and feast somewhere out of the ordinary with a select amount of people. Already a firm favourite in London’s foodie scene, we’ve snuffled out the best in supper club dining.
THE WATER HOUSE PROJECT
Located at Bert & May in Bethnal Green, The Water House Project (Fri and Sat evenings) is a supper club and private dining experience that’s the brainchild of former Galvin La Chapelle chef Gabriel Waterhouse and Michelin-starred chef Herbert Berger. Using their magnificent talents, the team creates outstanding menus using local and seasonal ingredients, transporting fine dining into a more relaxed environment. The seven-course supper club menu, paired with five wines, has previously included razor clam, preserved lemon and Jerusalem artichoke velouté as a main, as well as stout ice cream, puffed barley, barley cracker and black treacle with a glass of Churchill’s Reserve port as a dessert.
Coming in at £75 per person, the evenings are very popular. www.thewaterhouseproject.com
