The Michelin team were impressed by David Fogelman’s forward-thinking American cooking and the fun atmosphere on Portobello Road, says Jamila Brown
After a big overhaul in 2017, the Electric Diner has been listed in the Michelin Guide, described as a loud, brash and fun all-day operation, where the flavours are as big as the portions.
Head chef David Fogelman, a Pennsylvania native, has returned classic diner-style regulars like the Philly chilli cheese dog and double cheeseburger to the menu, as well as a rotating series of modern and seasonal takes like pumpkin chowder and courgette flatbread. “In two years, we’ve brought the menu back to its roots and worked with chefs from places like Au Cheval in Chicago that inspired the original opening,” David says.“By keeping that diner theme strong and adding forward-thinking dishes, we’ve created a place that people keep coming back to.”
