What is it good for?
The Kitchen is an intimate venue in the heart of the Clerkenwell Workshops, with a secluded garden terrace. It offers table service for intimate client meetings, lunch delivery for in-office presentations and a takeaway service for those on the run.
The soup of the day is thoroughly enjoyable, while imaginative recipes change daily and are full of fresh flavours. The pan-fried spinach and basil is a refreshing and light dish, perfect for a summer afternoon.
Who's the boss?
Co-owned by Emma Miles and Laura Hearn. Miles worked for Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall at River Cottage in Dorset, and Hearn was head chef at La Fromagerie in Marylebone.
The Kitchen is a popular boutique venue, so ensure you book your table in advance and arrive before the client, as sometimes the wait for service can be slightly lengthy.
What's the damage?
Main dishes range from £4.75 to £10.
