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.
Wellbourne Brasserie was opened by ex Dabbous Head Chef, Ross Gibbens, and Senior Sous Chef, Michael Kennedy earlier this spring and offers a unique all-day dining menu.
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.
First Event – Friday, 28 September
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 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.
Second Event – Thursday, 1 November
On Thursday, 1 November Ross and Michael will welcome their former boss and mentor, Ollie Dabbous, for the second bespoke dinner.
Ollie and Ross met at Le Manoir and when Chef Dabbous opened his first solo venture he was keen to bring Gibbens on board as Head Chef, Michael Kennedy soon followed as Senior Sous Chef.
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 £65pp with optional wine flight at £50.
All bookings will need to be made directly through the restaurant. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 3417 4865 to enquire. A deposit of £65 per person will be required in order to secure a reservation.
