Great Feast founder, Dominic Cools-Lartigue comments:
“From 2 Michelin star chefs like Tom Sellers and Andrew Wong to the wonderfully talented rising star Adejoké Bakare from Chishuru in Brixton, and from Chin Chin Labs nitrogen ice cream to our multi-sensory immersive dinner, there’s a real sense of the vibrancy and diversity of eating out in London all under one, rarely explored, roof. The Old Selfridges Hotel really is a hidden gem of a space within the iconic department store that I’m excited for our guests to explore.”
