The cook’s room.
To most people, that just means ‘the kitchen’.
But to the people at Hawksmoor Borough, it means ‘a private dining room serving unique feasting menus, and events space for pop ups..
…with its own kitchen.’
Yes, this cosy space is decked out in the now-classic Hawksmoor style, with glazed-brick walls, parquet-style floors, and Art Deco lighting, all centrepieces by a long 16-seater table. Immediately adjacent to it is the open kitchen, in which the chefs will prepare,
THE FEASTING MENUS
You can score surf & turf, pork, and beef menus to feast upon. The beef menu is a mere six courses of bovine goodness, starting with panzano tartare before moving onto beef tea (a rich broth served in teacups) and soft beef-infused bread, then heading to starters like langoustines and bone marrow, scallops & beef scratchings, and roast oysters….
…and then the main courses come in, with rib and loin of 40 day aged beef, dripping chips, and steamed ox-cheek and tail puddings. For dessert, they’ll torch a baked Alaska in front of your eyes. Then they’ll give you coffee and house-made Rolos. And all of that’s not to mention,
THE POP UPS
They’ll also be using the space for pop ups throughout the year, bussing in esteemed chefs like St. John’s Fergus Henderson, Pitt Cue’s Tom Adams, and The Dairy’s Robin Gill for a charity guest chef series.
Which is another way of saying ‘you need to go there’.
NOTE: The Cook’s Room is now open – you can book it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can find out more about their guest chef series by heading right HERE.
