How does CHEFS kitchen work?

No menus, no waiters, no fancy décor, just three meal choices. Sound horrific? Depends on how much you like good food and dislike the fuss that normally surrounds it.

Here, the chefs serve you lunch or dinner, Monday to Friday and literally, they do serve them. They bring you your food, doing away with the need for waiters. You’ll have checked the changing daily meal choices online before arriving, so you simply tell them what you want when you walk in and the chefs get cooking immediately. Your meal – a main and sides – is plated and curated in the kitchen and brought to you on the signature Chefs’ tray. Still or sparkling water is on the house, there’s a daily juice, beer, and the wine list changes monthly. There’s also a dessert that changes daily.


What are the operating hours?

The kitchen is open Monday to Friday between 12:00 and 15:00 for lunch (last order 14:30) and 18:00 to 20:30 for dinner (last order 20:00). Doors close at 21:30.
