London is teaming with pop-up restaurants and supper clubs catering for every foodie whim, with a myriad of gimmicks keeping folks rolling up for coveted spaces dining tables across the city.
The most exclusive supper club in town is the Esquire Unreserved Supper Club, which made its debut last night at Perseverance Works in Shoreditch. The evening stuck to what’s important: tasty food, great drinks and good company.
Chef and author James Ramsden, of the Secret Larder supper club, served up a feast of roast bone marrow and kale salad to start, bourbon and cider-braised Iberico pig cheeks from Freedown Food, with smoked mashed potato for main, followed by sweet tea cake with iced popcorn and apple for dessert.
James said: "You’ve got to bridge the gap between restaurant food and home cooked food – our aim is for people to walk away having tried something they have never had or heard of before.”
With drinks from Esquire’s favourite bourbon, Woodford Reserve, guests were encouraged to “re-fashion” the classic Old Fashioned, and experimented with various syrups and bitters that decked each table.
Unreserved fun at the Unreserved Supper Club, indeed.
