Grande Cuisine helps reduce service and energy costs at Soho House, Chiswick

Two Athanor cook suites have been installed, in partnership with equipment supplier Contract Catering Equipment (CCE) , at the Soho House High Road Brasserie in Chiswick, West London.

The refurbishment involved ripping out the 15-year-old kitchen and replacing it with two new cook suites.

A new wall suite was installed to handle the breakfast service and the production of hot starters during the lunch and dinner services.

Because the brasserie is an all-day dining environment, a second suite was installed to deal with lunch and dinner service. 95% electric suites were selected to replace the old gas cookers to keep down the costs of service and maintenance and reduce energy consumption.

The bespoke suites featured Plaque Athanor plancha cook plates along with a wet well bain-marie / chaufont / steamer / multi-cooker. The base included a single gas oven. As each suite is as individual as the chef who will use it, Athanor offers complete flexibility in design. Be this a traditional wall suite, island suite or compact slim-line arrangement, Athanor can offer a design solution that fits any kitchen.

The High Road Brasserie is a neighbourhood restaurant featuring Art Deco design and a vintage bar and terrace. Occupying the location of the old Foubert’s Hotel, the restaurant serves breakfast, brunch and an all-day menu, which includes daily specials.

High Road Brasserie has a versatile menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year-round, the restaurant can seat between 400 and 500 covers from breakfast, lunch and dinner. The number of covers can rise to 1,500 per day.

The High Road Brasserie is part of a portfolio of quality eateries and bars owned by Soho House.
