Restaurant Visit: Canteen in London

March 30, 2010

Canteen has firmly established itself on the British food scene, winning a series of accolades during the five years it's been in business. Founded by Patrick Clayton-Malone, Dominic Lake, and Cass Titcombe, the restaurant launched in 2005 with a location in Spitalfields; three other Canteen restaurants soon followed. The trio promote simple, locally sourced British food, and are part of a wave of restaurateurs who have put the much maligned national cuisine back on the culinary map. Along the way, Clayton-Malone launched design company Very Good and Proper with partners Ed Klauser and Andre Carpenter to produce functional, enduring furniture for the restaurant. The result? Modern sensibility meets sensible food.

N.B. We featured the Canteen Utility Chair when it first came out; the chair is now available from Twenty Twenty One for £217.
