Yes, it's *still* January, but the last weekend of the month does mean it's finally pay day again. And you'll definitely want a drink. We'd recommend BYOBing to Monograph's Japanese supperclub, which takes place in a gallery just off Well Street. On the four-course menu is watercress, tofu and ponzu salad, udon noodles with smoked mackerel, miso salmon and rice and some delicious little mochis to finish. Tickets cost £29 from here and it kicks off at 7pm.
Weird co-incidence: we took our first ever Uber Pool last Friday night, and the person we picked up had just eaten at The Waterhouse Project's supperclub. So now chef Gabriel Waterhouse's dinner has officially been endorsed as "really good." Which is always nice to know. This week, he's serving up Jerusalem artichoke veloute, sea bass and moules mariniere, roast pheasant and for dessert, roasted pineapple with coconut and coriander ice-cream. Tickets cost £40 from here, it takes place in Bethnal Green and starts at 7.30pm. If you're lucky, maybe you'll get to meet us in another Uber pool too...
This is definitely the night to enjoy an exotic three-course meal and help charity, as Pickled Plates are putting on a Refugee Action Dinner. The menu is described as "local British ingredients with a Syrian twist", so expect a starter of mezze, pickles and dips, then mains that include Ras el hanout salmon with Bramley apple and harissa filo parcels, honey and cumin roast heritage carrots, roast cauliflower and wild rice. Dessert will be orange and almond polenta cake with honey orange cream. Tickets cost £25 from here and £20 of that will be donated to Refugee Action. The supperclub takes place in Canonbury and starts at 7pm.
