Mile High

Mile High | Pop Up Restaurant In West London

The Templetons.

A little bit like the Von Trapp siblings, only they’re cousins.

Who can’t sing.

But what they can do – ‘they’ being ex-Moro chef Ollie Templeton (The Talent); events guru Anna Templeton (The Brains), Will Templeton (The Fun) and Ed Templeton (The… we’re not sure) – is bring a pop up dining experience to West London, for once.

It was bound to happen eventually.

Inspired by the golden age of 1950s air travel, ‘Mile High’ is their series of immersive dining events, which’ll take you on virtual city breaks to Gothenburg (in March), followed by Beirut, Sicily and Mozabique later on in the year.

You’ll be welcomed to the departure lounge (home to Mile High’s airborne DJ division) by air hostesses handing out ‘check in’ Campari cocktails and gourmet canapés, including fresh roe and dark rye sourdough served with “smoked reindeer”… Donner, probably.

Next – having bypassed the burden of actually having to fly anywhere – you’ll zip into an intimate dining room inspired by “the best of Swedish design”.

Which may mean that you have to build your own chair.

Once there – while enjoying performances from Mile High’s cabin crew – you’ll enjoy a four-course feast from The Talent, which promises to include pan-fried scallops with puréed potato; crayfish and brown shrimp with smoked bacon and sour cream; chargrilled elk…. and liquorice meringue.

In summary, they’ll be serving all sorts.

NOTE: A vegetarian menu is available on request. Tickets (both for dinner/drinks, and only for post-dinner drinks) to Gothenburg, running from 13th-16th March and 20th-23rd March 2013, are now on sale HERE.
