Five Years of Fabulous Food: Dabbous

It’s hard to believe that nearly five years have passed since Ollie Dabbous, one of the UK’s most in-demand chefs, together with award-winning mixologist Oskar Kinberg, opened Dabbous; a Michelin-starred Modern British restaurant in the historically bohemian Fitzrovia. Since then, this fabulous restaurant has received numerous accolades. The first one, achieved just months after opening, was a Michelin Star. Dabbous won the Best Kitchen in the Tatler Restaurant Awards 2012, and was number 11 in the UK’s Top 100 Restaurants, 2013. It’s safe to say that the discerning diner is in very inspired hands indeed.

Chickens and Foxes

SEEN loves food of all descriptions and was very intrigued to try this new rotisserie chicken restaurant practically next to Baker Street station. Their USP is that their Label Rouge chickens are happy, free-range, and slow-grown, feeding on pesticide-free grain. When they are despatched for the plate, their short but happy life results in a tastier chicken. SEEN certainly agrees with those ethics.
