Description: The River Cafe is a restaurant by the Thames in Fulham, specialising in Italian cuisine.

It is owned and run by chef Ruth Rogers and until early 2010, Rose Gray.

It began as the company cafe for the architectural practise of architect Lord Rogers. He converted the former Duckhams oil storage building into his offices, and his wife set up this cafe here in 1987.

The restaurant earned a Michelin star in 1997 and is critically acclaimed, spawning several best-selling cookbooks and a TV show.

Many successful chefs began their training here including Theo Randall, Ed Baines, April Bloomfield, Jamie Oliver, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Tobie Puttock.
