Canto73 started out as a café in an old shoe shop, and has now evolved into a travelling supperclub, currently in residence at Fantail cafe in Islington.

And after a few years, it’s pretty well seasoned by now.

Every Friday & Saturday night, Portuguese chef João Ferreira Pinto brings his Michelin-star training and time spent at Stoke Newington‘s Moio to bear on an exquisite, regularly changing four-course feast.

Chef Pinto values a personal touch and will enthusiastically guide you through each dish as he serves it, like you’ve dropped off and woken up in an episode of Chef’s Table.


Recent dishes have included scallop ceviche with locally-picked elderflower vinegar; salsify cacio e pepe; sweetcorn ice cream with Montgomery cheddar; and a mesmeric coffee tart, served with a strawberry & balsamic granita. And at £50 per head, your buck will be truly banged, your ounce truly bounced.

Chef Pinto also puts together a suggested wine pairing, supplied by the hooch connoisseurs at Graft Wine. At £22, this is another steal in the honourable name of accessible, high-quality food and drink.

Not bad for that little place on the corner.


NOTE: Canto73 supperclubs take place on Friday & Saturday evenings at Fantail. You’ll need to book tickets in advance, which you can do HERE.
