The Gastronomist Club Ltd is getting ready to fire up its roaring, open-flamed parilla (grill) and to welcome diners to a very special supper experience, right in the heart of Ashford’s town centre.

Opening this Spring, the new eatery will be a refined, modern event space, and will deliver exceptional and at times unconventional, dining experiences. The dinner party-styled restaurant will soon welcome guests for a curated two and a half-hour experience featuring menus inspired by fresh and local ingredients.

The format of the tasting menus will consist of six courses with selected wine pairings. Bellwether dishes will include the likes of Braised neck of lamb, grilled artichokes, Romesco sauce, pickled fennel and toasted almonds.

A dynamic programme of events at The Gastronomist will incorporate weekly ticketed dinner events, wine tastings and other hospitality-focused experiences including exciting collaborations with international chefs and “Meet the Producer” evenings. The venue will also be available exclusively for private functions.

The venue was also deliberately designed to serve as a blank canvas for art exhibitions, which will change throughout the year. The Gastronomist has commissioned international fine artist Zita Ayala, marking the UK debut of her work. The “Taupadak” Exhibition, which in Basque means “Heartbeat”, is a brand-new series that sees the artist explore the reconnection between humans and nature.

The Gastronomist team are working hard to ensure that, as soon as they can open their doors, the venue is Covid safe for their guests and staff. The management team are following all relevant government and industry guidance.
