If you're a bit of a foodie and addicted to all things restaurant-related on TV, then you would of heard the name Tom Aikens.
At 26 he became the youngest British chef ever awarded two Michelin stars and now owns a number of restaurants himself including his Tom's Kitchen chain.
Of his six brasserie-style eateries, four are located in Chelsea, Canary Wharf, Somerset House and St Katherine Docks - of which my partner and I were lucky to visit.
Located a stone throw away from the Tower of London, Stuart and I took the tube to the dreamy waterfront location to enjoy an evening of comfort food favourites in the chic eatery.
We sat next to the impressive floor-to-ceiling window overlooking luxury yachts in Central London's only marina and started with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.
The fruity white from Chili (Pionero Morande, £27) had an edgy acidity, balanced body and long peach and pear finish.
M first chilled glass went perfectly with our treacle cured salmon starter (£9).
The menu celebrated the best of British, blending seasonal produce and cosy classics, with contemporary techniques and a touch of flair.
The chicken liver and foie gras parfait (£9.50) and steak tartare (£11) did sound tempting, but it was the silky oily fish that won our vote.
We hadn't finished our warm homemade bread before our first courses arrived and didn't they look elegant.
Served with beetroot yoghurt, pickled cucumber and dill, the sweet cured salmon was the humble star of the show but the colourful accompaniments was what made it extra special.
It was rich, but not heavy, fragrant but not confused and it was a delicious way to start out first experience of a Tom's Kitchen restaurant.
The mains on offer included a good selection of vegetarian dishes, fish and grills, alongside a gluten-free section too.
From mussels, fish and chips and steak, to winter green risotto, squash and mushroom salad and loin of venison, there was even a daily specials board too.
While my partner went for the grilled Herdwick lamb leg steak (£22), I ordered roast fillet of Cornish cod (£24).
If you're having three courses like we did, you won't need a side, but if you're going for just a main, then I would considering adding something like triple cooked chips, cauliflower cheese or spring onion mash (all £4 each) to your meal.
My cod was huge. I was excited by the size of the plump white fillet that rested on a pile of fresh veggies.
The fish beautifully flaked off my fork. It was moist, well-seasoned and had a fantastic crispy skin.
My partner was just as enthusiastic about his succulent pink lamb sitting on an exotic bed of orange bulgur wheat, dressed with almonds and a meaty, deep jus.
Both dishes looked trendy, bespoke and appetizing yet humble, generous and sumptous at the same time - a bit like the atmosphere inside the restaurant.
There were half a dozen desserts to choose from (priced £7-8) including blackberry and pear crumble, baked apple, pineapple tate tatin, chocolate eclair and homemade ice cream and sorbet.
We went for the latter in creamy mandarin, raspberry, mango and strawberry flavours.
Indulgent and luxurious, our sundaes were the ideal way to round off our deluxe evening.
Considering its prime location, celebrity chef status and gorgeous menu, our experience of Tom's Kitchen was surprsingly humble, welcoming and affordable.
We might just have to make a speedy return to try out the new weekend brunch menu.
