    14/10: Crockery crisis and successful tastingThe recent design changes - marble floor instead of rustic wood; lots of brass everywhere - has thrown the crockery attempts into disarray. The heavy, stone-like plates will have to be replaced by something finer and more elegant. Noam and Yotam are going back to...

    8/10: Choosing the materialsThe architecture is preactically finished. We know where the walls will be. It took a long long time, because there are so many elements that have to fit with each other: food lifts, ventilation, water, electricity - they are all entangled. The next stage: interior design. Alex...

    5/10: The previous incarnation Shaun Clarkson ID were the designers of the previous incarnation, The Club Bar and dining. They very sweetly sent us some pictures of the old place. There’s something both beautiful and cruel about the rise and fall of restaurants: people put their heart and soul into...

    30/9: This is seriously the best part Yotam spent the morning (well, most of it) with Lindy from Ceramica Blue (http://www.ceramicablue.co.uk) sifting through catalogs looking for crockery. Then with Sarit going through the prop list which is endless. Where to start? We’ve got late glasses, linen napkins, condiment bowls, skillets...

    30/8: “Destroyed", as Darek the builder describes it. And that’s what it is. Compare to what it used to be just 5 minutes ago: http://www.theclubbaranddining.co.uk/

    25/9: Choosing the floor…made us (Yotam and Noam) go all the way to Pizza East (http://www.pizzaeast.com) and have lunch. These are the hardships of setting up a new restaurant. Poor, poor us, and I can go on, but, anyway, Alex wants a rough floor, real rough, and Pizza East has...
  • Monthly Chef Meeting

    It was one of the most productive chef meetings we’ve had so far. Almost everybody was there, bar Adriano, Garry and Francis (we sort of excuse them), and the ideas were both original and delicious. It was short as well. Myles’ beetroot mash with ginger puree and duka was immediately...

    21/9: Project Team Meeting - first tastingBusy meeting last night at Motcomb street (http://www.ottolenghi.co.uk/locations). A lot on with not too much to show for it at the end, unfortunately. Quick slide-show below shows Noam measuring space between chairs while Basia and Cornelia pretending to be diners, albeit a bit too...
