The novel menu is set to offer a new take on London’s dining scene inspired by the culinary heritage of the country, with a focus on the 20th Century underground movement of English cookery.  After months of research, menu planning and preparation, Nathan and his team have developed a menu inspired through the ages from the 1920s based on the Rex Whistler mural,  ‘The Expedition in Pursuit of Rare Meats‘ and under the guidance of Food Historian, Joanna Cheetham.

The menu focuses on traditional dishes from around the local London boroughs featuring nettles, cherries and coddling apples, traditionally from Hampstead, as well as the eponymous Chelsea bun.

Autumn dishes will give diners the opportunity to try smoked goose with prunes, figs, sprouts and cob nuts.

Having worked in the food industry for almost 10 years, Nathan has worked in high-profile restaurants such as Le Deuxieme, The Forge, Bayne, in Covent Garden and Tate Modern’s Level 6 restaurant.

The Whistler Restaurant is set to reopen in the November 2013, over 80 years since it first launched, and after a recent £45 million refurbishment at Tate Britain.
