PokerStars has partnered with London’s foodie kings, Jones & Sons, to launch the All-In Kitchen, the world’s first pay-by-poker restaurant. To celebrate the UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) kicking off in London, the All-In Kitchen will see diners’ success at the poker table determine how much they pay for their meal. The restaurant will open its doors from 19th to 21st January in Haggerston, with plans to roll out the experience nationwide across each stop of the PokerStars UKIPT.
It's proved so popular however that two more dates have been added - 26th and 27th January.
The one-of-a-kind dining experience will allow customers to literally put their money* where their mouth is by booking a seat at the felt and playing an action packed three hands of poker, perfect for novices and sharks alike. Their remaining chip count will determine whether they pay £10, £5 or come up trumps getting their meal for free on PokerStars.
The tasty collaboration will sees Haggerston’s Jones at Trip play host to the All-In Kitchen, from the 19th to 21st January, with guests able to book their place at the restaurant here: http://bit.ly/1tSuExw
• 10,000 chips and above: Dinner will be on the house!
• Between 5,000 and 10,000 chips: Diners will have a small fee of £5 to pay for their culinary delight
• Less than 5,000 chips: Diners will still bag a bargain, with the three-course gourmet feast totalling £10
Customers will be able to choose from a poker inspired menu, exclusively curated by Jones & Sons. The gourmet offering will feature a ‘Royal Flush of King Crab Thermidor’, ‘Queen Scallops accompanied by Salt Baked Swede and Bacon Marmalade, ‘4 Of A Kind of Lamb Chops, Rump, Kidney and Shoulder With A Rosemary Jus’ and even a ‘2 Pair of Pear Tarte Tatin, Pear Caramel and Ice Cream’. Ordinarily, the cost of this meal, including the bespoke poker-inspired cocktail, would equate to over £50 per head – so diners are being offered incredible value by paying a maximum of £10 for the entire feast.
The All-In Kitchen will immerse Londoners in all things poker, which will fall in line with the arrival of the UKIPT in the capital on the 20th January. The UKIPT, the nations biggest poker tournament, will commence at The Hippodrome Casino London, before moving on to further poker destinations across the UK and Ireland including Nottingham, Bristol, Dublin and Edinburgh, where the All-In Kitchen is currently securing its next residency.
Andy Jones, Founder of Jones & Sons, Said: "I love food and never shy away from the tables when I get the chance, so having the opportunity to create a menu that combines two of my favourite things was something I jumped at. Embracing Poker within the dishes was a lot of fun and some of the dishes that hit the cutting room floor were a bit out there, but I can't wait to see the results and serve up some Aces."
