Review on The Table
The Table restaurant can be found on Southwark Street just a short stroll from the Tate Modern, the South Bank and Borough Market. This hidden gem was founded by Executive Chef Shaun Alpine-Crabtree and the architectural practice Allies & Morrison, who designed the venue. This casual eatery has clean lines with a minimalist décor, chunky wood tables and stools, floor to ceiling windows and an open plan kitchen adds to the convivial ambience.
The kitchen follows the seasons using the finest local ingredients and there is a real dedication to promoting sustainability and ethical sourcing. The Table also buys its herbs and vegetables which are supplied on a daily basis from the homeless charity St Mungo's.
Heading the kitchen is Cinzia Ghighoni who has worked at many acclaimed kitchens such as Duck Soup, Angela Hartnett and Zucca and he offers up a fresh take on modern Italian cuisine. Look for raw or grilled queenies scallops, lemon, chilli, parsley amongst the starters, with main courses taking in tagliatelle, crab bisque or rose veal ossobuco, risotto alla milanese. When it comes to desserts you might see pannacotta, poached rhubarb, cantucci or pear and almond tart with creme fraiche.
Wine writer Matt Wells has developed an excellent wine list for the restaurant offering a well-thought out selection of new and old world wines, all available by the glass. Their weekend brunch is also a very popular event, as is their Saturday evening live jazz sessions.
