Many feel they are too old to get all dressed up and go trick-or-treating in the Capital.. If that's you then please do us a little favour and at least celebrate the spooky month with some Insta worthy restaurant visits!
From 27 – 31st October, guests visiting Bread Street Kitchen and Heddon Street Kitchen will be immersed in a unique and theatrical setting and a host of dark dishes with innovative, show stopping Bacardi cocktails.
A spooky five-course banquet at Heddon Street Kitchen includes dishes such as whole roasted suckling pig served with apple compote and rum glazed pineapple and beef tartare with Bloody Mary rose sauce. The banquet also includes a bubbling Witches Pipe cocktail, featuring kiwi fruit, Bacardi Carta Blanca Rum, activated charcoal and pineapple.
At Bread Street Kitchen Head Chef Paul Shearing has created a darkly delicious menu of braised veal shin with smashed pumpkin and black garlic sauce, beautifully paired with the Twilight Tea cocktail, a goblet of Grey Goose, pumpkin purée, lapsang tea and orange bitters.
The macabre, fantastical décor will fully immerse guests and intriguing dishes will be available alongside with mystical cocktails, to offer the ultimate culinary Halloween experience.
Heddon Street Kitchen, the latest addition to the Gordon Ramsay Group, will be hosting a series of wine dinners with handpicked winemakers from across the globe, kicking off on Tuesday 20th January with one of Australia’s most celebrated brands, Penfolds.
The wine dinner takes place in Heddon Street Kitchen’s stunning private room, overlooking the buzzing open-plan kitchen and stylish restaurant. Enjoy an intimate dining experience and taste a selection of wines while Penfolds’ own Rohan Anderson guides diners through the characteristics of each grape variety, and learn how these pair with and enhance the flavour of the four-course dinner prepared by Head Chef Maria Tampakis.
Diners will be treated to baked scallops served with a salsify purée, treacle bacon and celery cress, followed by a Tomahawk steak main. Enjoy alongside a choice of sides, including: roast Brussels sprouts with bacon; spiced, honey carrots; hand cut chips; steamed green beans; or for a little extra indulgence try the mac ‘n cheese, mashed potato or gnocchi with Jamón and Pecorino. A selection of cheeses will then be served, followed by an indulgent dessert of chocolate fondant with cherry sauce.
