Phil Howard’s “Magnificent Seven” Supplier Dinner

22nd Apr 2022

at Elystan Street, Chelsea on Wednesday 18th May, 2022

Everyone’s so busy these days.  We’re all banging on about being “time poor”.  Well, you won’t hear those words coming out of Phil Howard’s mouth.  Despite the fact that he and business partner Rebecca Mascarenhas run three of the most delicious restaurants in the country (Elystan Street, Kitchen W8 and Church Road) and Phil has active interests in a handful more besides (Perilla, Lorne and The Ledbury), as well as one in the French Alps (Union in La Plagne Montalbert) AND a London-based pasta delivery company, OTTO, you still won’t hear him complaining.  You’re more likely to find him doing what he loves best – cooking at the stoves of his Michelin starred restaurant in Chelsea – Elystan Street. 

For Wednesday, 18 May, he has devised a menu brimming with spring produce that will surely bring joy to all those who try it. Unsurprisingly, he has a posse of cherished suppliers that he’s worked closely with for years (some for decades). They know him. They know what he likes. They know what he doesn’t. They know to wait until something is at its absolute peak before presenting it to him, which of course translates into plates of sublime, seasonal food.

Phil Howard at Elystan Street, SW3

On the evening of 18 May, Phil and his chosen spring suppliers have created a “magnificent seven” spring menu at Elystan Street, which will showcase everything that is perfect at this time of year: sea trout, Jersey Royals, wild garlic, morels, asparagus, early strawberries and the list goes on. And Phil will be paying homage to his suppliers through this menu, which will mark the start of a new season tasting menu, available for the table at lunch and dinner at Elystan Street thereafter.

You are cordially invited

Elystan Street’s Magnificent Seven Supplier Dinner will take place on Wednesday, 18 May and will showcase some of their most valued spring suppliers and most wonderful spring produce.

Menu price: £105 pp, with Luxury Restaurant Club members enjoying a welcome glass of champagne (£19 pg) for bookings.

Wine flight: £65 (working with some of Elystan Street’s wonderful wine suppliers)
