Evelyn's Table

Soho, London

Intimate counter dining with a cool edge


Originally under the auspices of the Selby brothers, Evelyn’s Table is an intimate 12-seater counter restaurant tucked away under The Blue Posts pub in Chinatown that is now led by head chef James Goodyear.

The restaurant serves a menu built on Goodyear’s cheffing experience, which includes time spent at multi-Michelin star venues such as Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and Hide in the UK, Mugaritz in Spain, and Maaemo in Norway as well as his love of British produce and Scandinavian and Japanese techniques, which are underpinned by his classic French training.

Menus are continually changing and often aren’t available online in advance, but guests to one of its two nightly sittings can expect a five-course menu cooked right in front of them in the tiny open kitchen. A drinks pairing is also available, with an ever-evolving selection of wines and sakes as well as low an non-alcoholic options.

London has its share of small, counter-based restaurants, of which Evelyn’s Table was one of the first. Its more laid-back feel compared to some of its peers, complemented by a soundtrack that could include gangsta rap and grunge as well as S Club 7 (maybe) makes it one of the more memorable.
