TING restaurant at Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London is launching a unique Chef’s Market Table, taking advantage of its proximity to Borough Market – London’s most renowned food market with gastronomic British and International produce.
Designed by Master Sculptor Alison Crowther, the table is made of timber sourced from a Buddhist Monastery in Chithurst, West Sussex. The unique design is reminiscent of the distinctive lines of the meandering Thames River that can clearly be viewed from the restaurant. The finishing highlight is the quartz table top, which contains minuscular shards of chrome to reflect light flooding in through the floor-to-ceiling windows during the day and atmospheric restaurant lighting at night. Crowther titled the table in its sculptural sense ‘Passage’ – with reference to the passage of time, water, travel, connecting it to the River Thames.
The Chef’s Market Table will take guests on a culinary journey, with a variety of gastronomic experiences to savor exceptional cuisine in TĪNG Restaurant on level 35 of The Shard.
Throughout the year, groups can reserve the Chef’s Market Table for lunch or dinner. The seasonal menu will be available from four courses with wine pairing hosted by one of TĪNG’s culinary artisans. The host will provide diners with insider knowledge on ingredients, methods and recipes throughout each course.
Couples and families can take advantage of the ‘At the Market with Chef’ offer, an interactive stay including a bespoke shopping trip to Borough Market, a personalized five-course dinner prepared with ingredients chosen at the market stalls, a classic Champagne Afternoon Tea and a personalized apron from £475 per room, per night.
