Pilgrim | A Pop Up Restaurant Taking You on a Culinary Pilgrimage
Things to do



Get ready to follow Pilgrim’s progress.

Because it’s coming to London as a series of pop ups before it officially starts its journey as a fully-fledged, bricks and mortar eatery in April 2018.

Coming to you from an intrepid set of friends (including a head chef formerly stationed at Mac & Wild, Sheekey’s and The Wolseley), Pilgrim takes its inspiration from the regional cuisine dotted along the route of the centuries old pilgrimage to the Santiago de Compostela cathedral in Galicia, north-west Spain. Each incarnation of the pop up will be dedicated to a different route, and their first celebrates ‘The French Way’; setting off from the Pyrenean village of St. Jean Pied de Port, and passing through the Basque region, Navarre, Rioja and Castilla y León.

And from the comfort of a cosy Dalston café, you’ll be visiting each of these locales by way of a six-course tasting menu, accompanied by paired wines and sherries. There’ll be twists on classic dishes like charcoal talo (a Basque tortilla) with Ibérico pork short rib; the signature Galician dessert, tarta de Santiago; and of course a play on the traditional ‘pulpo a feria’ or, er, fairground octopus.

So while the sherry is pretty potent stuff…

…you won’t be left feeling legless.


NOTE: Pilgrim is popping up between 16th and 25th November at 103b Dalston Lane. Tickets cost £47 for the sitting, plus an additional £30 for the wine and sherry pairings – you can book in right HERE.
