Bubbledogs is now open, run by husband and wife team James Knappett and Sandia Chang. There are two distinct elements: Bubbledogs serves grower champagne, sparkling wine and hot dogs. Meanwhile, hidden from sight at Kitchen Table, Knappett
and his team will host intimate lunches and dinners with a maximum of 19 guests, seated directly around his kitchen. Kitchen Table opens today.
“We are very excited to be opening our first restaurant together on Charlotte Street, and to be introducing something a little different,” say Knappett and Chang.
Bubbledogs offers a menu of ten hot dogs served on traditional steamed buns, including the BLT dog, the Jose dog and a regularly changing guest chef’s special. Prices start at £6. There is a concise list of grower champagne and sparkling wines available by the glass and the bottle. Chang is introducing lesser-known producers and regions to her list, with prices starting at £6/glass and £32/bottle. They also offer a changing list of five cocktails and craft beers.
Kitchen Table, meanwhile, will showcase Knappett’s contemporary European cooking and innovative use of ingredients. Knappett will prepare, serve and talk through his dishes with diners during the course of a tasting menu (£68), initially available at dinner service only. Sample dishes include: Beetroot, fennel and garlic scapes; Chicken skin, grilled onion and burrata milk; Beef, dead nettle and carrot; and Hay, strawberry, malt and sweet cicely. The wine list will consist of 100-150 bins, primarily lesser-known fine wines and small producers.
The site was let to Bubbledogs by Mark Calder of Restaurant Property.
