Our open kitchen is home to an ever-changing line-up of talented chefs from around the world who share our philosophy on what eating out should be all about: amazing cooking, friendly service, a relaxed environment and a shared experience from one table to the next.

Starting with Ollie in the kitchen - who has the enviable task of curating the line-up - our team works closely with the resident chefs to ensure that no matter who’s cooking, the Carousel personality is always at the heart of the experience.

Advanced bookings mean less food wastage, which is a good thing for us but an even better thing for the planet.

One sitting - doors open at 7pm for a 7.45pm start.

Chet Sharma

11th - 15th June

From the people who brought you iKOYi, Cornerstone and Jikoni before they were a thing (clue: that's us) comes an exclusive preview of super talent Chet Sharma's perfectly pitched answer to Indian fine dining. The former Mugaritz, L’Enclume and Moor Hall development chef has hit upon a perfect marriage of the traditional Indian flavours of his upbringing and the kind of gastronomic wizardry you only master by messing around with a centrifuge alongside Andoni Luis Aduriz for several years. The results? Elegant and hyper-original dishes like 'Scallop, Fennel and Naringi Lime' and 'Suckling Pork, Goan Chouriço, Peas and Mooli'. You heard it here first...

Yuji TaniTOKYO 18th – 22nd June

Yuji Tani
TOKYO

18th – 22nd June

Yuji Tani is an intriguing character. Covered in tattoos, which still carry the stigma of organised crime in Japan, he quietly goes about his business producing deceptively simple and impossibly beautiful French-Japanese dishes that are as pretty to look at as the body art that adorns his arms. Located in Tokyo’s Nishiazabu neighbourhood, ‘HOUSE’ has become a cult favourite, serving up “homestyle” dishes from its open kitchen made with love from fresh ingredients delivered daily from small-scale producers around Japan. Up next for Yuji is a hotly anticipated opening in Brooklyn, NYC. But first, Carousel, where tattoos aren’t just tolerated, they’re encouraged.

Colonia Verde
BROOKLYN

25th – 29th June

De Kalb Avenue has fast become a culinary mecca thanks to neighbourhood hot spots like Colonia Verde. Here husband and wife team Felipe Donnelly and Tamy Rofe draw the crowds with their signature Latin American-inspired farm-to-table cooking and their legendary asados that take place out in the back yard on the last Sunday of every month. Think ‘Lomo al Trapo’ (beef tenderloin, covered with salt and wrapped in a wet cloth before an appointment with the wood-fired grill), or his melt in your mouth ‘confit duck tacos’, accompanied by crunchy yucca and tangy Catupiry cheese. Come hungry, because these guys live to feed you.

Emmanuel Prieto
MEXICO CITY

2nd - 13th July

You need Emmanuel Prieto’s Baja-style fish tacos in your life and you need them now. Oh, and his hoja santa empanadas. And his cochinita pibil. And... you get the picture. Emme’s life-long passion for cooking has taken him all over the world, but it’s the traditional flavours of Mexico that continue to inspire him each day. His dynamic, unconventional and downright exciting ‘Mesa Nomada’ pop-up is big news in Mexico DF, so much so that he was invited to be part of René Redzepi’s NOMA Mexico project in Tulum. Like his hero, simplicity, freshness and provenance are Emme’s guiding principles and the results are absolutely thrilling. Best enjoyed with mezcal.

Pablo Lagrange’s CV is so impressive it sounds made up. Boragó, Noma, Relæ, Mugaritz, Tickets, Pakta... Since leaving Argentina in his late teens he’s made it his business to seek inspiration from some of the world’s most forward thinking chefs. Rooted in “memories, tradition, fire, and the landscapes of Argentina”, he’s since developed an imaginative, beguiling style of his own, earning himself recognition as one of San Pellegrino’s top ten young chefs along the way. Based in Barcelona, Pablo has recently begun popping up in different cities around the world, pushing culinary boundaries in Istanbul, Lyon and Moscow. Next up? Carousel... Prepare to be very excited. We certainly are.

Babette
STOCKHOLM

14th - 25th May

What makes a great neighbourhood bistro? Just ask friends Olle T Cellton, Fredrik Lundberg, Jon Lacotte and Johan Agrell, the quartet behind Stockholm industry favourite, Babette. There they marry Italian-accented small plates of the highest order – think ‘rainbow trout, celeriac, lemon and sorrel’ and ‘veal tartare, Parmesan and colatura’ - with an impeccable wine list and a welcome that’s as warm as the wood-fired pizza oven they inherited from the previous owners. There’s no pretence here, just simple, lovely things done very, very well.

La Banchina
COPENHAGEN

7th - 11th May

Located on the Refshaleøen waterfront, complete with its own traditional wood-burning sauna, everything at this ethically-minded seafood restaurant from ex-Relæ chefs Daniel Runge Christensen and Kieran McLaughlin is natural, organic, biodynamic and locally sourced. That means fish from sustainable supplier Fiskerikajen, veg from the Birkemosegaard biodynamic farm and herbs from legendary forager Thomas Laursen. The team’s twelve-dish weekend tasting menus are the stuff of legends, featuring inventive flavour combinations like ‘oyster, dill and horseradish’, ‘pike perch, bergamot and mussel juice’ and ‘squid, ramson and beach beet’ that reflect the tiny wooden cabin’s seaside location.
