Her Little Place, Closing Night at Global Feast, 15th August

a really remarkable and stunningly put together piece of art … It’s very theatrical and magical.  The table created this romantic, magical setting …  an incredibly unique backdrop for an adventurous dinner.”

The Culture Geek, A Foodie Farewell to London 2012, 12th August

“We can’t think of a more appropriate way to round off an incredible fortnight.”

The Sunday Times, Richard Brooks, BiteBack, 12th August

The enormous map table is hugely impressive, and certainly unique – I’ve never seen anything like it, in person or in  pictures. The main table surface represents sea level; major land depressions are represented by cut outs and land contours by sculpted shelving.”

“But it was the setting, rather than the food, that dominated the evening. The huge sculpted table, lit with candles to represent the world’s major cities and decorated with flowers made from old maps, served as both furniture and artwork as diners used the time between courses to explore the terrain around them.”

“The centre-piece of the evening is the remarkable dining-table, a huge sculptural art installation…Combining the subversive playfulness of the best supper clubs with a wonder-inducing artistic flair. Global Feast is well worth seeking out.”

“If you’re going to be involved [in the Olympics], then damn well do it properly, as has Alex Haw, of Atmos, with his superb Global Feast. Two glorious weeks of cutting-edge cuisine…fabulous culinary melee is set around a unique table centrepiece… contoured loveliness… the pièce de résistance of a year of planning and technical calculation … exquisitely understated touches… Into each plate was scratched and inked a map, some drawing the shape of the Thames. Add to this scattered candles and flowering table decorations created from folded A-Zs and I began to feel as if I was at an incredibly upmarket and creative version of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Highly recommended“.

“The star is the table, a 16-metre long, three-dimensional map of the world. Guests sit along the edges of continents, with holes allowing them to peer down into the Mariana Trench, while Mount Everest stands two metres above the ground. The bar, stretching along one side, is Antarctica. It is insanely beautiful.”
