Armed with co-owner and chef extraordinaire, Chris Denney (found unbelievably through an ad on Gumtree), Luca Longobardi has created one of the most exciting spots for Notting Hill foodies to come and let their taste buds play. It wasn’t by chance that Luca chose a garage for his first project. For him, a garage is a place of research and repair; whether it’s researching new recipes, constructing and deconstructing plates or repairing souls. Although softening its raw, industrial roots with an eclectic mix of furnishings and artefacts, 108 is still pretty far from your traditional restaurant. Chris’ menu is inspired by his global travels and features a unique seasonal mix of textures and tastes, influences and artistry. Many of the dishes change daily, but signature creations include the likes of lamb heart agnolotti with swede dashi and pink onion or Jacob’s ladder with black garlic and dill pickle tartare.
