Arno's Saltoun Supper Club
Saltoun Supper Club. We jumped on it. We love going to supper clubs as well as do them! The hosts are probably as crazy as us for opening up our homes to complete strangers! So its nice to bond.
We wondered out of place along the streets of dark, cold and wet Brixton to find ourselves creaking up to the top flat of a Victorian terrace following, John. He is our waiter for the evening. Upon entry, it immediately felt like we had all stepped into another world, another time, another era.
Hello. My name is Arno. Says Arno. Welcome to my place. Arno has a thick moustache. Perfectly combed resting above his lips like a Mario but he is tall and thin. Dressed in a pink shirt with braces holding up his brown tweed trousers with sleeves rolled up his arms and an apron around his waist – Arno goes back to his station and we are shown to our table. Its like stepping into the 1940s and pleasantly so.
The desserts and cheese board, plus tea or coffee added to my kick. I love being so impressed by someone and by food. Good food holds centre in Arno’s masterplan and there is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the best places we have ever eaten in.
Arno has been doing these great suppers for over a year now! May he thrive forever and a day!
