Restaurant Tom’s Kitchen Chelsea - London


Tom Aikens opened Tom’s Kitchen in Chelsea in November 2006, just a few hundred yards from Tom Aikens Restaurant, his eponymous award-winning business.

Located in a good-looking townhouse on the former site of The Blenheim pub in the London neighbourhood of Chelsea, Tom’s Kitchen covers three floors and offers brasserie dining, from breakfast to dinner, in a relaxed, informal environment. It also offers two rooms for private dining, drinks parties and canapé receptions on its second floor.

Tom’s Kitchen is a ten-minute walk from South Kensington or Sloane Square Underground station on chic Cale Street on Chelsea Green. It’s a village within a village, with its boutiques and jewellers, launderette and hairdresser, plus an ace fish shop, The Chelsea Fishmonger, a top butcher, Jago, and Jane Asher’s cake shop. The King’s Road is just a two-minute walk away with its endless shopping possibilities and cutting edge art, in the Saatchi Gallery.


Tom’s Kitchen is a modern British twist on a French brasserie. While brasserie means comfort food – there is Caesar salad and steak tartare, fish pie and macaroni cheese (with truffle).

Tom’s Kitchen also puts its well-executed spin on other dishes such as hand-dived baked scallops with garlic and lemon, and duck confit cassoulet with parsley crumb, and whole roast partridge with choucroute, maple bacon and pear. Desserts are no less exciting - and comforting, from milk chocolate mousse profiteroles to apple & blackberry crumble with toasted almond ice cream and cinnamon doughnuts with apple & raisin compote.

Daily Specials - Tom’s Kitchen believes in making the most of the seasons, so the menu changes accordingly, bringing the best each season has to offer.

Breakfast is big at Tom’s Kitchen - voted Best Breakfast in London by Time Out. As well as The Full English, dishes include eggs royale with smoked salmon, crisp Belgian waffles with caramelized apples, cinnamon cream and maple syrup, plus homemade granola with mixed berries and Greek yoghurt.

And weekend brunch is a must. Highlights include a grilled open steak sandwich with onion relish, tomato, watercress and big chips, and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. Reservations for weekend brunch are reccomended.


To kick off (or finish) your dining experience at Tom’s Kitchen there is a delicious line-up of cocktails to enjoy in the first floor bar or at the table in the brasserie, starting with a selection of Champagne-based drinks, such as the peach-laced Bellini or elderflower-scented Twinkle, through to a collection of classic cocktails (the Margarita is one of Tom’s personal favourites) and house signatures, such as My Fruity Wife.

The concise, well-chosen wine list offers much to excite the palate and skips the globe, dropping in on the craggy north-west coast of Spain with an Albariño from Bodegas Eidosela, to the rolling hills of Tuscany, in Italy, with Antinori’s Chianti Classico, and further forays into New World wine regions, finding superior Sauvignon Blanc from Awa-Iti made in New Zealand’s Marlborough and a bright, fruity Sangiovese from Chile’s northernmost wine region in the Elqui Valley.

But if beer is more your thing, Tom has sourced a selection from London’s celebrated Meantime Brewing Company. And not forgetting the line-up of after-dinner drinks to round off your meal, from a range of rums and sipping tequilas, to Bourbon and whiskies.


Tom’s Kitchen Chelsea offers two gorgeous areas that are available for private hire. Accommodating from 10 to 40 guests for seated dinners, and up to 6o guests for standing receptions, the spaces offer great venues for a range of events, from birthdays to anniversaries, press launches to wedding receptions, corporate events to cocktail parties – even kid’s parties (Monday to Friday only). The brasserie is also available for private hire.

The private dining room has a maximum capacity of 22 seated around a long table, and is available for pre- and after dinner drinks. It also includes a projector and screen for meetings, plus fresh flowers, candles and place cards if required.

The first floor dining area has a maximum capacity of 40 seated and 60 standing, and has its own bar.

Tom’s Kitchen creates seasonal menus especially for private parties, but if you have any favourite dishes the team will do their best to make it happen.
