Tapas for 2 at Chefs Warehouse & Canteen

CW PHOTOS16

Late, after every service at Chefs Warehouse, the chefs get together to decide what they will serve the next day. Guests are presented with a completely different menu every day, often based on what is available/ seasonal. This keeps the menu fresh and exciting, and it certainly makes it more interesting for the chefs as well.

The Tapas for 2 menu consists of 8 dishes. It typically contains 2 to 3 seafood dishes, 1 or 2 vegetarian options and the rest is made up of poultry and meat. Flavours can be diverse:  something Asian can be found alongside a Middle Eastern dish or even Indian. This isn’t “fusion food” though, it is more like a pairing of flavours that are unexpected but work together really well. This makes for an enticing menu that can satisfy anyone looking to experience lots of different flavours all in one meal.

Below is a recent menu:

Cured Salmon w Fennel & Grapefruit

Deep Fried Squid w Caramelised Pineapple & Sriracha Mayo

Red Roman Tartare w Avocado Purée & Apple

Carrot Risotto w Mascarpone

Roast Parsnips, Cauliflower Purée & Brûlée Onions

Lamb Kofta w Marinated Aubergine, Tomato Salsa & Yoghurt Dressing

Venison w Beetroot & Butternut

Confit Chicken Wings w Wood Blewits, Pickled Pine Rings & Fondant Potatoes

Although a set menu, most dietary requirements can be catered for. Some are easier, others a little more difficult. For example, if you are vegan, we are most certainly able to assist, but we would need some notification. This may be contrary to our no bookings policy, but if you let us know when you are planning to visit us, we can prepare a vegan tapas.

Our wine list is small, and although it doesn’t change everyday, we are constantly looking for and tasting new and exciting wines to serve alongside our menu.

Our opening hours:

Lunch: Monday to Saturday 12pm to 2:30pm

Dinner: Monday to Friday 4:30pm to 8pm

Right from the start, we have had a no reservations policy. This can be a bit confusing and off putting to some, but there are ways to ensure that you get a table. The most obvious is to arrive when service starts. Once we are full, we start a wait list, and again, being early means that you will be placed at the top or certainly, near the top of this list. All effort will be made to get you a table. Once on the list, we will suggest having a drink at ‘no reservations’ our bar that now occupies our old ‘street food’ take away.

Here, you can have a glass of wine, from the same list as on our menu, or a draught beer straight from the tap. No reservations is open Monday to Friday from 3pm to 9pm.

We look forward to welcoming you.
