RESTAURANT STORY

London, May 2018 – Every chef tries to express himself, through his culinary creations. Restaurant Story is Chef Tom Sellers’ channel to express himself, his story, his memories of his family and of the British heritage.

Our New Yorker friends had been raving about this restaurant for a few years, and it was a rare occasion that we were all in London. This was their favourite restaurant, and of course, we had to try it. Though the restaurant only has one Michelin star, the entire dinner – presentation, taste, service, wine – felt like a three Michelin stars experience.

We had the 8-course dinner, GBP100++.  Aside from the 8-courses, there were quite a few amuse bouche to start with.

It took us 4 hours to finish this amazing dinner. Restaurant Story is smart casual, so the ambience is lively, yet elegant. One of the best ways to experience modern British gastronomy!
