Carousel Presents Shaun Presland
Popping up between 4th and 15th August, this three-floored residence in Marylebone has an array of fleeting happenings, from foodie events to guest chef residencies. Our pick is Australian Shaun Presland’s delectable menu, which showcases his time spent in the kitchen with the godfather of Japanese fusion, Nobu Matsuhisa. Expect to tuck into the likes of crispy skin hiramasa kingfish with old school ginger teriyaki glaze, ohitashi, carrot purée, jalapeño cream and leek wafer. Yum.
