Chef José, who used to live in the Triangle, has brought the supper club idea to Greenwich. Last weekend he held a cocktail event at the El Salvador embassy. This Saturday it's supper at the Trafalgar Café, 98 Trafalgar Road, SE10 9UW, at 7pm.
José's wife, Anne-Claire, who used to help at our Street Party, says:
'The Trafalgar Café is nice as it looks cosy and peaceful to me.
The concept of a supper club is that everybody starts at the same time and gets the same menu (with exceptions for dietary requirements).
The idea is that you can sit with other people and meet them or have your own table depending on how many tables are available. On Saturday a group of six people have asked to be together. Tickets are £35 per person bought in advance at the café or through José or myself.
José provides tasting menus while other supper clubs may be simpler. There will be a Christmas tasting menu in December.
There will be an option of pairing wines (in co-operation with the Theatre of Wine).
I thought this may be of interest for people in Greenwich as I don't think there is an equivalent in the area.'
