Marcus McGuinness Pop-up Restaurant at The Loft Project in Haggerston

The Loft Project is a location that offers private dining, usually for up to 16 people.  It runs a series of Pop-up events; pre-booking is essential and each diner pays £120 (including VAT) to cover the cost of the meal, including a one-off membership fee.  For 3 days in August, Marcus McGuinness will be serving a meal for 12.

"Hailing from leafy Oxfordshire, Marcus’ career kick-started after a part time job in a local 1* Michelin restaurant (Chavignol, Chipping Norton). When his college apprenticeship was complete, he took on full time responsibilities there, and consequently followed his Head Chef – Gus Ashenford – on to a further two new openings, assisting in achieving 1* in each restaurant.
Next, by joining David Everitt-Matthias at his iconic 2** Champignon Sauvage Restaurant in Cheltenham, this gave Marcus the opportunity to explore one of his most favourite pastimes – foraging.
Onwards to 2** Hibiscus in its original form (Ludlow, Shropshire). Being part of the original team who made the much-anticipated move toLondon in 2007, Marcus remains Claude Bosi’s Head Chef, now firmly established in Mayfair."
