Consisting of a melt-in-the-mouth 300g Argentinian sirloin steak served with chimichurri and roasted red bell peppers, it’s the only way to honour Marcelo’s triumphant return to the premiership with the mighty whites.
The menu also includes Pancakes with seasonal berries, honey, mixed nuts, and chocolate mascarpone for those with a sweet tooth and a Homemade Granola Bowl with goji berry, yoghurt, natural honey, kiwi, and pineapple.

Born in Huddersfield to a Jamaican mother and Saint Lucian father, Chef Dom has had an impressive culinary career that was fuelled by his family’s love of Caribbean cooking. After humble beginnings cooking up a storm at family weddings, christenings and parties within his tight-knit community, Dom went on to study cookery and quickly his way up the ladder to become Head Chef at ‘The George’ pub in Catford.
Before long, he was building an impressive portfolio, including a one-year stint at a golf resort in South Carolina, and the prestigious Belgrave Hotel back in London. After a successful 2-year stint managing two sites for the brunch-centric Jam Tree restaurant group, Dom decided to set up his pop-up chef concept.
The Chef Dom Taylor Kitchen was born, which saw him signed up for his current 2-year residency at Fourteen|87 Restaurant and Cocktail Bar in Catford.
