Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Chef/restaurateur Jamie Oliver's London restaurant Fifteen is currently closed for renovations, which include adding custom-crafted toilets. Oliver posted a picture of one of his "bespoke" toilets to Instagram, and here's his writeup that explains it all:

So my first restaurant FIFTEEN is closed for a big refurbishment exciting, but look what arrived today !! Our own cast iron FIFTEEN toilet system !!! Woop woooop this is when you know you've gone crazy when this kinda thing makes you happy !! I'm really happy ?! Because of a toilet !!?? Not a car not a Gucci suit not a posh watch no not me its a damn bespoke toilet ! these days is making me laugh anyway if you come see us you can take a piss and flash in style !!

Last October, Oliver told the Radio Times that people have been stealing the handles and flushers from his restaurants' toilets so he had to have them "welded on." Said Oliver, "Honestly, some people were coming out for a meal and going home with half a toilet. Bonkers!" Hopefully the new ones are more locked down.
