The Top London Restaurants With Chefs Tables

Many celebrity chefs now have their own establishments from which they can showcase their various styles, cuisine and skill. Many also have chef’s tables, so guests who might want to catch sight of a celebrity chef in the cut and thrust of the kitchen can see the action up close.

Here’s our top eleven Celebrity Chefs with tables and private rooms

  1. Gordon Ramsay is, of course, the original and the most prolific celebrity chef. Restaurants that bear his name which also boast fabulous private rooms are the amaze-ing Maze – with its plethora of different rooms and culinary styles, from steak to modern European and pan-Asian. But that’s not it, Ramsay’s portfolio also includes modern British cuisine in two private rooms at The Savoy Grill for 8 and 40 guests and a range of private rooms at the gorgeous York and Albany, as well as the Italian inspired Union Street Café, modern European at London House, modern British at The Narrow and laid back vintage Heddon Street Kitchen.
  1. The incredibly talented Angela Harnett moved on from being Ramsay’s protégé some time ago and her latest collaboration with Neil Borthwick includes a chefs’ counter for up to ten guests at The Merchant’s Tavern although there’s also a private room for up to 22 guests.
  1. Richard Corrigan has cleverly crowbarred two rooms with views of his state of the art kitchen for 12 guests at the chef’s table and 6 guests at the kitchen library at Corrigan’s Mayfair.
