They are designed to appeal to solo diners, groups of friends or couples, with tables will be arranged to encourage conversation. The menu for the first event includes starters of scallops with apple and ginger puree, braised cheeks with caremlised white onion terrine or butternut squash fritters with roast peanut sambal. Mains include flat-iron steak with chimchurri, roast monkfish with olives and mussels or wild mushroom fettucine. Desserts are cheeseboard, banana and mango samosas with passionfruit sorbet or chocolate, ricotta and hazelnut pavlova
