Frequent research trips to Louisiana (New Orleans), Missouri (St. Louis), California (San Francisco), Charleston (South Carolina), Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) and Washington DC, as well as studying under numerous chefs, has equipped her with a repertoire of American classics, meaning you'll enjoy some of the best American food in London.

Gareth Rees

OWNER & DOGSBODY

Having family from the USA, even though he was born in London, meant that the States always held a certain allure for him. As the years went on he had the opportunity to travel extensively, where he increasingly explored the superb regional foods and drinks of America. 

Recognising that both his American wife (Judy) and American expats would be missing their Southern fried chicken, gumbo, jambalaya and staples like truly great Buffalo wings, he recognised the need for a proper American restaurant in London.
