We are excited to announce the launch of The Cross & Friends, a series of exclusive collaborations, pop-ups and events taking place over the next few months.

As part of the series, chef director Adam will invite chefs and suppliers to The Cross for one-off dinners, and will also make appearances at festivals and events throughout the summer, sharing a little piece of what makes The Cross unique.

The first event will take place on Thursday 14th July with a reunion between Adam and Cornerstone head chef James Toth for an exclusive Michelin-starred seafood feast.

Having grown up locally, James worked at The Cross in Kenilworth from the age of 18. He moved quickly up the ranks, learning much of his trade from experienced chef director, Adam, before working at the likes of The French Laundry in California and landing the position of head chef at Tom Brown's Michelin-starred Cornerstone in Hackney.
