The whole team at Con Gusto Catering is so proud of our sister restaurant Con Gusto restaurant.
For the third year in the row it has won the prestigious Diner's Choice 2019 awards which is awarded by Open Table! Con Gusto restaurant is a fine dining Italian restaurant based on the Royal Arsenal. They specialise in typical handmade Italian cuisine and the location is in a beautiful historic guard room along the river Thames.
The Diner's Choice award is even more important as the romantic little restaurant won the title for three great categories. Con Gusto was awarded the title of Best Food, Best Italian Restaurant and Best Romantic Restaurant in London.
All three are fantastic accolades and no one is quite sure which their favourite is. Though to be awarded Best Food is really quite something, and a title the team of chefs duly deserve. The Con Gusto team, whether at the restaurant or in the luxury catering always pride themselves on the quality of the dishes they create. Made with years of experience, passion and dedication, they make sure everyones dining experience is unique.
One reason why the team was so happy to receive the award of best food, best romantic restaurant and best Italian is because it is voted for by diners as being the best. Con Gusto was elected by feedback from diners who booked through OpenTable and also only from those people who had dined with us. This means it is voted on by genuine praise only and only from verified diners. We truly are so ecstatic with this award and we are so proud of our sister restaurant to be receiving this recognition.
The team at Con Gusto is always pressing forward hoping for that Michelin inspector in order to hopefully receive one day their true aim - to be in the Michelin Guide or to have a Michelin Star at Con Gusto. The team work hard each day hoping that they are one step nearer and nearer to this goal.
Thank you to all of you who have dined at Con Gusto Restaurant on the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich and who therefore helped us win this fantastic title.

Luxury sushi and Japanese catering is a speciality of ours here at Con Gusto Catering. Sourcing ingredients: Sourcing the right ingredients for exclusive events with sushi is paramount to providing a truly exclusive service. Head Chef, Rigels Tufa, for Con Gusto Catering remarks, “our chefs can often be found carefully choosing fresh fist at 3:30am when Billingsgate Market first opens. Arriving on time allows for first choice of the night’s evening catch by the fishermen. One can find live eels, langoustine and hand dived scallops caught only a few hours earlier. Such singularly fresh ingredients is the life and soul of our chefs dishes, as only with such fresh ingredients can real magic be made.”
Sashimi-grade yellow tale tuna and hamatchi are just some of the fish which trained sushi masters transform in the morning into delicate sashimi designs, carefully crafted into flowers and forms then finally decorated with fresh tobiko.
In the above photo you can see chef Rigels preparing a much loved by our clients classic: salmon gravadlax sushi with avocado and topped with wasabi mayonnaise and black tobiko. On the left is pearl oyster tempura with red tobiko.

Here at Con Gusto Catering we have had an excellent time providing luxury finger food and canapés for Harrod's Estates in Central London. We were at the exclusive serviced apartments at The Tower located in Vauxhall.
After one year's collaboration with Harrod's Estate, we have catered for an assortment of high-end events with them, including meet and greet get togethers, private chef catering in the serviced apartments, business lunches in the business room and canapé parties for birthdays, baby showers and house warming events.
New to our menu was flame seared Norwegian salmon with black tobiko - Japanese for flying fish roe. The fresh salmon was flame seared in front of the guests giving it a delicious flame cooked taste as fresh as it can get.
The guests were delighted with the large assortment and the presence of our Sushi chef who explained the different assortments of sushi and sashimi.
