With stints at Per Se and Marcus Wareing on their résumés, it would have been logical for James Knappett and Sandia Chang to open their own fine dining establishment. Instead, they opened a hip Champagne bar named Bubbledogs, where the only item on the menu is a hot dog, available with 12 different toppings. But while you can take the truffles away from the boy, taking the boy away from his truffles is another thing entirely. Using the profits they earned from selling hot dogs and bubbly, the duo built a secret hideaway just behind their restaurant – 17 seats spread around a U-shaped counter – where Knappett serves tasting menus featuring dishes like crispy chicken skin slathered with rosemary mascarpone and bacon jam, and venison with rose-flavored yogurt, fresh pine, wild mushrooms and shaved chestnuts. It’s one of the toughest reservations to come by in London.
