Here's a story to go in the 'things we're looking forward to when the lockdown is lifted' pile. Over on the edges of Chinatown, Evelyn's Table is gearing up for a changeover of chefs that sounds very promising indeed.
The diminutive restaurant, tucked away in the basement of The Blue Posts won a slew of awards when it first opened two years ago (and we were among its fans). But now they've brought in a brand new team to run things who are gearing up to start, once London's restaurants reopen.
Taking charge as Head Chef is Luke Selby, the former head chef at Hide and Great British Menu Finalist 2019. And Luke's keeping it a strictly family affair, bringing in his brothers Nat and Theo alongside him in the kitchen. As for the food, we're told the menu will focus on British produce, but using French and Japanese cooking techniques. There'll be two sittings - and they're aiming for a prix fixe £55 menu of 5-courses.
There'll also be new people running the front of house here too - Harvi Singh who worked with Luke at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saison will be the restaurant manager and the wine list will be run by Megan O'Rahill, previously of Noble Rot.
They've taken over now and will be serving as soon as the restaurant reopens. Definitely one to look forward to as soon as the lockdown lifts.
