For the past five years, Dan Doherty has been Executive Chef of Duck and Waffle and boy has he made a name for himself. Before D&W high-rise dining was - with the exception of Galvin at Windows - somewhere you went to gaze out of the window rather than down at your food. But at D&W it became exciting, innovative - the food was every bit as interesting as the 40th-floor view.
So it's safe to say that Dan doesn't like staying still. This year he's already helmed the launch of Duck and Waffle local - a ground floor level experience in St James. And now, he's experimenting with his own standalone dining experience – Sprout.
We popped along to the first outing of Sprout, which will, in due course, become Dan's own restaurant once he finds the right spot. While the search for that continues, for the past few days he occupied the Fifth Floor terrace cafe at Harvey Nichols. Here's what was on the menu...
So what's next for Sprout? Dan has plenty of Sprout events over the Summer, so there will be chances to try out the menu for yourselves before the restaurant arrives. Just make sure to follow him on Twitter to get the latest updates of where Sprout will hit next. And of course, we'll tell you as soon as more news of future events hits.
