Simon Rogan unveils new look London chef’s table

Simon Rogan’s intimate Soho chef’s table restaurant Aulis London will be increasing its capacity from eight to 12 at the end of next month.

Aulis London, in St. Anne’s Court, opened in 2017 and is described by the restaurant’s website as: “[Rogan’s] way of inviting you behind the scenes to share insider knowledge about his philosophy, where a deep respect for nature and the wild meets cutting edge technique, imagination and passion.” Many of the ingredients used are sourced from Rogan’s own farm in the Lake District.

Diners at Aulis London pre-pay £175 for the tasting menu (there is also the option of adding on wine pairings) before being treated to an audience with executive chef Oli Marlow and head chef Charlie Tayler, who talk the guests through each of their culinary creations.

In addition to almost doubling the restaurant’s capacity, L’Enclume restaurateur Rogan has recruited Blacksheep to re-design the interior. A press releases states that the intention is to “bring a new found homely feel to the central London chef’s table whilst still reflecting Simon’s world-renowned ethos, which stems from the natural environment and Lake District landscape, the home of his three Michelin-starred restaurant L’Enclume and original Aulis chef’s table [in Cartmel, adjacent to L’Enclume] seating six.”

As part of the re-design, there is a new stone countertop spanning the dining room, and a softly-lit wine store, displaying some of sommelier Charles Carron-Brown’s favourite bottles from the list.

Furthermore, an adjoining lounge will also be added to provide a place for diners to relax before their meal.
