In a nutshell: Tom Aikens returns to fine dining
Summing it all up: Chef Tom Aikens has been out of the fine dining game for a while, but his new Belgravia restaurant seems him return to that with a tasting menu inspired by his life so far.
It's been five years since chef Tom Aikens had a fine dining restaurant (his Chelsea place closed back in 2014). Clearly he's ready to get back into that space as he's just announced he's opening Muse.
Taking over two floors of a mews house in Belgravia, Muse (geddit?) will be a teeny restaurnt with space for just 25 diners. Think of the whole thing as a chef's table with each floor having an open plan theatre kitchen.
As Tom explains, the seasonal, stripped-back tasting menu is inspired by everything from his childhood through to the places he's travelled. There's no word on dishes yet - we'll bring you those when we have them.
