The Water House Project | Hackney


"Excellent food with a Michelin worthy chef. Worth every penny!"

Rahel Anne Bailie, Local Guide

Gabriel is the archetype of what OpenKitchen has set out to achieve for young chefs. Starting his career at Galvin La Chapelle, he immediately realised he would need a more creative outlet, so he started "The Water House Project" in his living room. A year and a half into it, Gabe teamed up with James, now founder of OpenKitchen, and scaled up together at Bert & May’s warehouse in Hackney. The Project caters to 100 guests each week with an 8 course tasting, paired with wines from our friends at WineDog.
