Stevie Parle is Bringing Joy to Sothebys

Stevie Parle is brining a little Joy to Sothebys.

For those who don’t know Stevie, he’s the man behind hits like PalatinoPastaio and Craft London, as well as the brilliant Dock Kitchen, the site of which he reincarnated last year as Joy, and then migrated to Marylebone. It’s a tangled web, to be sure. And now he’s popping up for five days at one of the world’s most esteemed auction houses to celebrate Modern British Art Week.

It’s going to be an all-day affair, with lunches featuring fresh gnochetti pasta with slow cooked red wine & sausage sauce; XL langoustines with freshly made mayo; venison roasted with bacon, chestnuts, and Sangiovese; and a gignatic white truffle risotto for two. Then in the evening, the place will convert to a supperclub, with tables laden with belted Galloway beef tartare & pickled elderberries; line-caught seabass with champagne; some twice-baked chocolate cake, and a lot more.

Of course, this will all be surrounded by some of the finest art in the land, with pieces from the likes of Bridget Riley and Henry Moore staring at you from just a few yards away.  And, as with Joy’s other incarnations, the space will also moonlight as a plant shop & furniture store vending the Tom Dixon seats you’ll be sitting on, as well as tables, the lights, the lot.

It may only be on for five days, but it’s as good as Stevie’s previous spots, you’ll be be going once… going twice…

 

NOTE: Joy is popping up at Sothebys from 18th-22nd November. You can find out more, and make a booking at the website right HERE.
