We’re extremely excited to announce that for eight days only we’ll be bringing one of the most exciting pop-up chefs in the world to London for the first time. 

It was a trip to Laurent Quenioux’s LQ @ Starry Kitchen in LA that first inspired us to start Chateau M so being the first people to bring him to London is very exciting indeed. Chef Quenioux’s illustrious career or LQ matches classical French Michelin star training with the true spirit of Californian experimentation and innovation.

Driven by the city’s ravenous appetite for the new, LA’s favourite pop-up restaurant pioneer Laurent Quenioux (LQ) gave up a highly lauded permanent gig to become a roaming chef a couple of years back. Partnering with unusual venues (rooftop at Barney’s anyone?) all over the city to create stunning food, partnering his Michelin starred French background with the Californian spirit of adventure. Recent dishes like cold-poached Maquereau, goat cheese varnish & English peas chantilly or Kentucky fried quail with green asparagus tonka and bean espuma set him apart from the crowd. Hush-hush events like his ‘420’ dinners: nine course cannabis-tasting menus seal the deal. 


The critics are united, with the LA Times, LA Weekly, The New Yorker and Huffington Post all singing chef Quenioux’s praises, he’s even appeared on USA TV’s guilty pleasure, Top Chef. Those in the know on the UK scene have also taken note, like owner Dan Calladine, as he explains, “I’ve been following LQ for a while and we’ve been in touch discussing the idea of bringing him over, I’m really pleased he’s found a home at Chateau Marmot, another pop-up we’ve supported since the start. Absolutely can’t wait for these events” 


His fans and the critics adore him, with Huffington Post, The New Yorker, LA Times and more queuing up to sing his praises. . 

We’ll also be doing two brunch sittings for the first time, a collaboration between LQ and our current chef team lead by Ottolenghi’s Ramael Scully. Finally there will be live music and exciting visual art, all in a beautiful secret E1 location.

Tickets go on sale to the public next week by our subscribers can grab them here in advance, book early to avoid missing one of the dining events of the year!
