Keen followers of London’s restaurant landscape will remember Roganic as a two-year pop-up back in 2011. In 2018, it returned to London with several members of the original team on board; not a copy of Simon Rogan’s Lake District restaurant L’Enclume, but bringing elements of it to the capital – and with some of the dishes designed to reflect the London location. Cooking is confidently executed and full of flavour; many ingredients come from their farm in Cartmel and the cuisine style – which uses plenty of techniques, including pickling and curing – is such that diners will inevitably feel closer to nature than they usually do when eating out in the capital. Service is engaging and personable, with chefs delivering many of the dishes to the tables themselves.
Roganic was awarded its first Michelin star in 2018 after ten months of opening and it's one of the best Michelin star restaurants in London.
The interior is styled with polished concrete-style floors, brushed copper-style walls, contemporary wood-shaved chandeliers and pure white tablecloths.
Rogan has constructed a regularly changing menu that can be had in three forms: a shorter lunchtime version, a six-course tasting version and the full behemoth. The extended version allows you to savour the masterpiece of Rogan’s culinary art. Vegetarian tasting menu is solid, using foraged produce in a very imaginative way.
