POP UP RESTAURANTS (April 2017)

Indian Street Food with Gin Infusion Pairings

Booze and Indian food. Some think it’s the best pairing on earth, bar naan. And some of those people will be cooking up a 5-course spice-laden feast of Indian street food matched up with gins infused with cardamom, rhubarb & pomegranate, coriander & chilli, lemon, masala chai, and more.

Details: 6th April | Chit Chaat Chai, 356 Old York Rd, SW18 1SS | £55

Sam Stern at Brother Marcus

At the tender age of only just 26, Sam Stern has already written 7 cookbooks, which have been translated into 14 languages. And he’s going to be cooking up the ‘greatest hits’ from all of them at Brother Marcus as part of their supperclub series this April. There’ll be slow-roasted studded lamb, Yorkshire pudding sliders with home-cured salmon, crisp polenta, and triple chocolate tarts with grapefruit sorbet.

Details: 6th-8th April | Brother Marcus, 9 Chestnut Grove, SW12 8JA | £28

SINNER

The Concept: 7 sins, 7 dishes. The Dinner Ladies will design each course around a particular deadly sin.
The Venue: The Joker of Penton Street
The Extras: There’ll be edible art, performance, and set design, all as part of the show.
The Real Sin Here: Not going.

Details: 9th April | The Joker, 58 Penton Street, N1 9PZ | £50-£60

Mark Jarvis & Florence Knight’s Sunday Lunch

Florence Knight is getting back in the Kitchen for the first time since hanging up her apron as Head Chef of Polpetto, to join forces with Mark Jarvis at his acclaimed restaurant Anglo for, what we can only assume, will be the greatest Sunday Lunch literally ever. It’ll be 5 courses, with plate-fillers like Trenchmore beef with bone marrow and wild garlic, asparagus with cured egg yolk, and warm chocolate with candied fennel and Marigold caramels.

Details: 9th April | Anglo, St Cross Street, EC1N 8UH | £65 (to book, email HERE)

Titanic’s First Class Menu

A Titanic-inspired supper club. Sounds like it will go down well. It’ll be held in the appropriately vintage-y Hoxley & Porter, and you’ll find oysters and punch to greet you, then a menu including seared scallops with veal consommé, poached salmon with mousseline Sauce, dark chocolate mille feuille, plus a bunch of cocktails.

With ice.

Details: 13th April | Hoxley and Porter, 153 Upper Street, N1 1RA | £32.50

Thursday Feasts at Craft

Stevie Parle’s a lovely guy, with a lot of friends. Which is good news for you, because he’s inviting several of them over to his Greenwich restaurant in a series of monthly collaborations celebrating seasonal food and an authentic approach to dining. The second in the series will be focussed on the legendary Mangalista pig…

Details: 13th April | Peninsula Square, SE10 0SQ | £45 HERE

Hot Cross BBQ

Easter is a time for new life… pretty much all of which happens to go very well on the BBQ. A fact not unnoticed by ‘cue master Neil Rankin, who’s teaming up with supper-club queen A Little Lusciousness to lay on a Good Friday night of Indian BBQ, cocktails, and a charity auction.

Details: 14th April | Maida Hill Place, 2-4 Fernhead Road, W9 3ET | £45

Operation Red Rocket

The year is 1965. The moon has been conquered. The race to Mars is on. And the British Space Agency are hoping to claim it for themselves. All they need is an astronaut brave enough to take on the challenge. Perhaps someone who looks a lot like you, and who would find themselves eating a five-course feast from an ex-Moro chef in a space decked out by The Art of Dining crew to look exactly like a retro-futuristic ’60s space lab. Yes, maybe them.

Details: 26th April – May 13th | The Rose Lipman Building, 43 De Beauvoir Rd, N1 5SQ | £55

Forza Win: Spring Season

Prank shoe makers. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step. As is the new seasonal menu at lively supperclub Forza Win, with five courses of Italian deliciousness accompanied by beer and cocktails, tipping up at their Peckham warehouse for the month.

Details: Thurs-Sat Throughout April | Unit 4.1, Copeland Park, 133 Copeland Road, SE15 3SN | £35

MATR

Matr, we’re told, is an Old Norse word for ‘meal’, that you can pronounce “as you wish”. Which, frankly sounds nothing like it’s spelled, but whatever. The supper club comes from Danish chef Jonas Lorentzen, who uses old Viking techniques to make his menu, including the likes of Pigeon breast with Jerusalem artichoke mousseline, and beer-braised onions with a ‘dirt’ made from rye bread, malt flour, porcini mushrooms, and toasted walnuts.

Details: Various dates in April | A Secret Location | £55 (£90 with wine / winter juice pairing)

WastED

Getting wasted is great.

Unless you’re a meal.

So if you happen to find yourself down (up?) at the wastED rooftop pop-up over the next few months, you’ll be happy to know the chefs there are serving food that was destined for the bin. And you’re going to love it. Mostly, because chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Isaac McHale (from The Clove Club and Luca), The Ledbury’s Brett Graham, Jason Atherton, and Clare Smyth will be cooking it.

Details: Until 2 April | Selfridges Rooftop, 400 Oxford Street, W1A 1AB

Yamagoya

47 years ago, a Japanese truck driver named Masatoshi Ogata wanted to start his own restaurant in his hometown of Fukuoka. So he built one. With his bare hands. Then, he spent three years perfecting his ramen recipe. And now, Yamagoya have opened a pop-up in London. So they’ve finally made it? Right?

Details: Until the end of April | 64 Shaftesbury Avenue (entrance via Shuang Shuang), W1D 6LU

Sambal Shiok

It’s no shiok (unlike that pun!) to hear that Sambal Shiok are settling into another residency, following sell-out runs at Salvation in Noodles and The Sun & 13 Cantons. They’ll be serving up their Malaysian miracle food – including their signature laksas, beef rendang and banana leaf fishcakes – at Blend Café in Harringay for the next six months.

Details: 5.30-9.30pm, Tues-Sun until end of April 2017 | Blend Café, 587 Green Lanes, N8 0RG

Burger & Beyond x Other Side Fried Residency

Taking the double cheeseburger thing very literally is this twinned residency at spanking-new Soho bar, Dirty Harry’s. On the one side, you’ve got Other Side Fried knocking up fried chicken burgers drizzled with ranch sauce or smoked honey butter, and on the other, there’s Burger & Beyond bringing their 45- and 90-day aged beef patties to the table. And yes, there is a burger combining the two, as well as sides including loaded waffle fries, and chicken strips with cocoa and chilli salt.

Details: Until end of May 2017 | 203 Wardour Street, W1F 8AS

Adam Rawson Pub Residency

With a ‘Chef of the Year’ accolade from the 2015 YBFs, and heaps of award-winning burgers at just 26, Adam Rawson is the kind of guy you’d love to hate. Except if he’s feeding you said award-winning burgers, which, coincidentally, he is – at a new pub residency in Clerkenwell. He’ll be taking over the kitchen at The Gunmakers on weekdays, serving up his classic burgers and premiering his Japanese-influenced Nippon Umai burger, with aged beef, braised pork belly and wasabi mayo.

Details: Until May 2017 | The Gunmakers, 13 Eyre Street Hill, EC1R 5ET

Street Feast Winter Season

During the dipping temperatures of the winter months, the ‘Street’ part of Street Feast becomes less and less inviting …which is why they’ve moved everything indoors. At Dinerama, that means you’ll find an alpine lodge, wine garden and fire pit to huddle round with boozy hot chocolate, while Hawker House moves into the warehouse with a new food line-up including White Men Can’t Jerk, as well as a whiskey bar and Milk & Honey cocktail lounge.

DetailsDinerama is open Thurs-Sat from 5pm | 19 Great Eastern Street, London EC2A 3EJ

 Hawker House is open Fri & Sat from 5pm | Canada St, London SE16 7PJ

 Both free before 7pm, £3 thereafter

Mac & Wild City Pop-Up


In a bid to prove there’s more to Scottish cuisine than putting chocolate bars in deep-fat fryers (not that that’s a bad thing), Mac & Wild are popping up in the City with a late night whiskey bar and restaurant serving up everything from their award-winning Venimoo burger to Highland fried pheasant. And whether you’re taking a whisky masterclass, shooting virtual game in a virtual shooting game, or delving into a bowl of haggis pops, it’s all completely authentic… except the fact that the terrace is heated.

Details: Throughout April | 9a Devonshire Square, EC2M 4YN
