This autumn, Wellbourne Brasserie will host two bespoke dinners that will see Ollie Dabbous reunited with his former team and the ex-brigade from The Square join forces once again.
The two pop up dinners at their White City restaurant will take the form of a six-course tasting menu with dishes created by each guest chef and served from Wellbourne’s open plan kitchen. Diners will also be able to select an optional wine flight to pair with the dinner.
The first in the series of dinners will see former chefs from The Square come together on Friday, 28 September.
Ross Gibbens has worked at some of the UK’s leading kitchens including Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Launceston Place, The Vineyard and The Square and it was here he met talented chefs Rob Weston, Gary Foulkes and Mark Kempson.
The trio have gone onto work as head chefs at their own venues and have all been awarded Michelin stars for their cuisine. Rob Weston is at La Trompette the modern British restaurant in Chiswick, Gary Foulkes oversees the kitchens at seafood favourite Angler in Moorgate and Mark Kempson is at Kitchen W8, Kensington’s Michelin starred neighbourhood restaurant.
The tasting menu will start with Wellbourne’s signature vol-au-vents and Champagne followed by a six course menu featuring modern British cuisine created using the freshest seasonal produce and all delivered with expert precision and style.
On Thursday, 1 November Ross and Michael will welcome their former boss and mentor, Ollie Dabbous, for the second bespoke dinner. Ollie recently opened Hide restaurant and bar in Piccadilly with Hedonism Wines.
The dinner will again feature six courses and combine the refined style that has become synonymous with Dabbous.
The dinners will start at 7pm, where vol-au-vents and Champagne will be served followed by the six course dinner. Non-alcoholic options will be available. Cost for the dinner £65 with optional wine flight at £50.
