The long-awaited Greenhouses finally open at Chameleon this October
Chameleon, the experiential dining destination which opened within the spectacular Neo-Classical church designed by Sir John Soane at One Marylebone in April, has launched its private dining Greenhouses to the public this October.
The Greenhouses were originally set to open during the initial launch phase, however when the new lockdown restrictions were lifted the rules changed and the greenhouses were no longer constituted as outdoor dining.
The opening of the Greenhouses means Chameleon will now feature private dining on one side of the church building, all under Israeli Executive Chef Elior Balbul, showcasing his reputable Tel Avivian cuisine.
There will be nine beautifully styled greenhouses which reside on the east-side exterior of the historic building, each arriving in different sizes including four-seated private greenhouses, as well as various sizes seating up to 28. The total number of covers of all nine greenhouses is 84.
Each greenhouse will offer a set menu of £69 per person, showcasing an array of exquisite Tel Avivian gastro sharing plates of both vegan, vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, all created by Balbul. Larger greenhouses seating up to 28 guests will require a minimum spend.
Dishes include Aubergine carpaccio with raw tahini, grape molasses, crispy onion, pistachio & feta and Yellowtail sashimi, passionfruit, avocado cream, grilled pineapple, creme fraiche and puffed rice; as well as larger plates including Tel Avivian octopus, humus, pickled cabbage, baby carrots and urfa stock and Chargrilled cauliflower with a black lentil salad, saffron, cashew & cucumber gazpacho.
The decor within the Greenhouses at Chameleon will evolve and change with the seasons; starting with a bright, floral garden theme, before gradually adapting to the season of Autumn, where diners can expect brown and leafy colours adorning the glass walls.
When Chameleon first opened its doors as an alfresco restaurant, long locked-down diners were blown away by the beautiful decor curated by their in-house florist Artistically Twisted, and Balbul’s exquisite Tel Avivian gastro sharing dishes. Live entertainment from talented musicians, resident DJ’s and performing artists quickly gave Chameleon the name for being the holiday destination restaurant of the Summer.
Live entertainment will continue to play a major role in the restaurant, and diners can expect roaming acts to glide through to the Greenhouses when they visit.
Chameleon has introduced Salsa classes in the wonderful Xscape Studio every Wednesday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. All levels are welcome, come solo or with a partner and be guided step-by-step by professional Salsa instructors. Tickets are £25 each per lesson and are available to purchase here.
