The Whole Hog

The Elmore Jam started out as a unique supper in the home of Nick Atkins on Elmore Street, right on the border of Islington with Hackney. His supper clubs always included live music, mostly a jazz trio making things very lively while a carousel of tremendously diverse and innovative chefs served excellent food. Creating a social stage to meet new people was an important ingredient and very often his open and inviting home full of artwork and music business memorabilia presented a ‘through the keyhole’ experience that would stimulate conversation with gourmet food presenting center stage under some very hot stage lamps. Being the entertainment officer has always come easily to Nick who loves to host.

Nick has a new home in Leytonstone where we’ve had fun trying to fit everything in. The house is going to be completely redeveloped at some point over the next couple of years and so of course meantime we should have some supper clubs over there.

We also have a strong tie with Italian bakery Spianata in More London which is in London Bridge - More London is the funniest name for a street surely!*! Anyway it’s spitting distance from the river Thames and we look forward to bringing some tasty food to this street over the coming months.

My first time at Elmore Jam and what an evening it was! One of those little nondescript venues when you look from the outside but completely surprises you when you walk in. Beautifully done up by Nick and team. Once inside I met Danilo who is such a wonderful guy. So friendly, chatty and incredibly passionate about what he does. The food was just superb! Loved the mackeral with burarata and aubergines - all my favourite things - maybe not the mackeral but it was good! The asparagus was insanely good. Overall the experience was gorgeous, amazing food and people

We had a great evening with superb food. I would heartily recommend it and we will book again.

My fear was we'd be four baby boomers entangled in a party for millennials. We were. And it was brilliant (at least for us!). The Elmore Jam is a super cool venue, offering a warm welcome, live music (what a great bonus!). Danilo was charming and his food delicious, which we really enjoyed sharing with everyone there. A truly memorable night out, and great value for money. Well done everyone!

Great evening - excellent venue- chef was great, charming, approachable and delicious food!

Another amazing event at the Elmore Jam! The combination of warm and welcoming hosts, fabulous chefs, live music, and a beautiful space that cuddles diners in makes this supper club one not to miss. Danilo's food was beautifully presented and explained by the chef, full of rich and contrasting flavours. I hope to see more events from Danilo very soon. Our group of friends, some of which were grubclubing for the first time, had a wonderful time. Fantastic event, highly recommended!!!
