The Table welcomes exciting new chef and wine list
London restaurant The Table is proud to announce the appointment of new head chef Cinzia Ghignoni and an exciting collaboration with wine writer Matt Walls to create a new style of wine list.
Cinzia Ghignoni's impressive pedigree includes working at Zucca, with Angela Hartnett and most recently, at Soho's Duck Soup. She brings a fresh take to The Table, creating a brand new and exciting menu, which continues the restaurant's commitment to modern Italian cuisine using quality British ingredients. The new menu, divided into small and large plates, features delicious offerings such as 'Grilled Octopus and caponata', 'Pappardelle, Tuscan sausage, chicken livers and ragu' and 'Salt Pollock brandade with grilled polenta'.
Quality and freshness is essential to The Table, impeccable sourcing and sustainability are at the heart of each dish. Everything is made from scratch in the restaurant's kitchen including an impressive array of breads and even some of the cheeses. Co-owner Shaun Alpine-Crabtree ensures close relationships with top quality and often local suppliers, including with St Mungo's allotment project for London's homeless.
Shaun has been working closely with wine writer Matt Walls to create a new and unique wine list. Featuring grape varieties that aren't available anywhere else in the UK, the wine list perfectly complements Cinzia's fantastic work in the kitchen while giving wine beginners and connoisseurs alike the chance to experience something new and exciting.
Shaun says: 'The Table has evolved over the last seven years, and what was once a canteen cafe has grown into a fully-fledged restaurant. With new head chef Cinzia Ghignoni and wine expert Matt Walls on board, we are delighted to be able to provide an ever-more-tantalising food and drink offer. We look forward in hungry anticipation to our next seven years in Bankside.'
The Table will continue to offer its hugely popular weekday breakfast and weekend brunch, which includes indulgent dishes such as The Table Stack - 'Chorizo and ham hock baked beans on a toasted bagel with two poached eggs and hollandaise' and 'Brioche French toast, with bacon, banana and maple syrup'.
The restaurant will also continue to feature musical entertainment on Saturday nights, allowing diners to enjoy top jazz and folk talent from around the capital while they dine.
