Hosted by Lyle’s restaurant in Shoreditch, London, The Guest Series is a way to showcase some of the most talented chefs from around the world. Each dinner will feature a different chef that we highly respect and think is doing incredible things.

For us, this is a way to learn and progress. “I believe that a restaurant should never stand still. We are looking to constantly evolve. The guest series gives us an opportunity to see British produce in a new light,” explains James Lowe, head chef at Lyle’s.

Whilst we are a British restaurant that celebrates British produce, The Guest Series gives us and our diners a chance to see what’s going on elsewhere – bringing the opportunity to experience some of the world’s best restaurants, without the airplane fare. 

The Guest Series is hosted by Lyle's in partnership with MasterCard Priceless London.

On Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd August 2016, Jowett Yu is joining James and the Lyle’s team in the kitchen for two special suppers. 

The Taiwanese-born chef started his career in Sydney and has garnered major international acclaim for Ho Lee Fook, his modern Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong.

Inspired by the spirit of late-night Chinatown hangouts in New York in the 1960’s, the restaurant is the epitome of casual cool. Think dim sum, hip hop and dimmed lights. And it’s exactly that vibe that we’re looking to bring into our Shoreditch restaurant when Jowett’s in town, including big communal ables and sharing plates.

Serving up Chinese flavours that reflect his Taiwanese heritage, combined with his background in modern technique and using premium local ingredients, these dinners should hopefully introduce a few new and exciting flavours to Londoners. With dishes on the Ho Lee Fook menu as Chongqing chicken wings, drunken clams, San Choi Bao and Wagyu short ribs, we’re beyond excited.

The ticket price is £59 for a set menu. MasterCard holders can book tickets from Thursday 21st July at 16.00 via Priceless London. Tickets are then on wide release from Tuesday 26th July at 16.00 on theguestseries.com
