Alaska seafood pop-up experience hits London
Travel back in time to the Gold Rush era on Saturday 21 June 2014 as Pimlico Gardens becomes an Alaskan settlement for one day only!
Lotus UK is getting excited about the Alaskan seafood pop-restaurant we are working on for the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute. It will take place on Saturday 21 June and we’ve just confirmed the location as the lovely Pimlico Gardens, right by the river in London. Tickets went on sale this week so now it’s all systems go!
This special one-day event will showcase the abundance of wild, natural and sustainable seafood that comes from Alaska’s icy waters, from the mighty king crab and black cod, to sockeye salmon and Alaskan halibut.
The event will start at midday and guests of all ages are invited to join us to sample the very best in responsibly sourced Alaskan produce, as well as honing their cookery skills at a number of different workshops and demonstrations learning to cure, smoke and prepare fish with a team of chefs who previously worked at award-winning London restaurants including Moro, Bocca Di Lupo and St John. In addition to the seafood, guests can also enjoy live music and fun-filled activities like panning for gold and treasure hunts.
As night falls a limited number of just 80 lucky diners will then take their seats under the cover of canvas to enjoy a luxurious seafood banquet, a specially prepared gastronomic Alaskan feast and an unforgettable evening of food, drink and dancing. The menu will include a selection of four delicious dishes including; Wild Alaska King Crab on toast, Confit Wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon, Roast Wild Alaska Halibut, and, for dessert, herb cake served with almond ice cream, blueberries and strawberries.
Tickets start from £15pp for the daytime event (under 12’s go free) and £55pp for the evening banquet. Get your tickets now at www.designmynight.com/alaskan-gold-rush
