StoryFollowing on from his hugely successful pop-up, Foreword, which opened in November 2011, Story on Tooley Street is the next chapter in Tom Sellers' culinary life. Launched in April 2013 when the Noma alumnus was a youthful 25 years old, Story was immediately dubbed "the new Dabbous" by The Guardian food critic Marina O'Loughlin and earned a Michelin star just five months after opening. Open for lunch and dinner serving modern British dishes like razor clams in cigar oil, beef fat candle, veal tongue served with rapeseed oil aka bread, beef cheek with stout and cauliflower yeast, oysters, and three bears porridge. With a first rate CV - the chef has worked with Michelin-starred chefs including Thomas Keller at The French Laundry and Per Se, Tom Aikens at his Chelsea restaurant, Adam Byatt at Trinity and Rene Redzepi at Noma - and with just 42 covers, it's not surprising that bookings can be hard to come by.
