A Dessert-Only Restaurant Is Popping Up In London For The Summer

Dessert-only restaurant, Whisk, is returning to London with a sweet new menu.

After a successful run last autumn, Whisk is back in a big way. Only this time it’s coming to Angel for a three-month summer stint.

Headed up by award-winning patisserie chef Simon Jenkins and dessert-loving entrepreneur Randon Burns, there’ll be all sorts on offer — but if you don’t have a sweet tooth, this probably isn’t the place for you.

Whisk was a total sell-out in 2018, so this year they’ve chosen a space that’s over double the size of their debut location in Bethnal Green.

Open five nights a week, the three-course tasting experience will feature an amuse-bouche, a choice of six desserts, followed by petits fours to finish. There’ll also be a delightful menu of ports and dessert wines, because what else?
Favourites from last time will be making an almighty comeback, but you can also expect a few new surprises. Simon is certainly inventive, and he’s not afraid of making bold decisions with techniques and flavours. Think vanilla sorbet with fresh berries and basil; avocado chocolate mousse topped with torched sweetcorn; and celery ice-cream with crumbled blue cheese. (Okay, not so sure about that last one. 🤔)

Whisk will officially open on May 14; opening five days a week (Tuesday–Saturday, 5–11pm) until August 3. More info here
