Tickets On Sale to Buy a Night of Private Dining in the London Eye with London’s Top Chefs
Exclusively sought-after tickets for this year’s Gordon Ramsey celebrity chef night in the London Eye have gone on sale this week.
After its sell-out debut last year, the 2010 festival will see the return of gourmet dining on the London Eye where an impressive line-up of top London chefs will privately cater to guests who have bought one of the London Eye’s capsule’s for the night.
One capsule will be transformed each night into the capital’s most exclusive restaurant, completing one rotation for each course. Each evening, ten guests will enjoy dinner 135m above the River Thames with what’s been described as the UK’s most exclusive chef’s table.
This year the eleven chefs invited to take part include London’s leading chefs and restaurants including: Gordon Ramsay, Angela Hartnett, Richard Corrigan, Giorgio Locatelli, Atul Kochhar and Mark Hix. Other top London restaurants serving up exclusive meals will be The Ivy which will see Gary Lee, Head Chef of The Ivy, create a special 20th anniversary menu which will celebrate The Ivy’s much loved and diverse dishes from the past 20 years. Other top restaurants including the popular Hakassan and L’Anima will also be taking part.
Last year, the Gordon Ramsay night was auctioned off at a charity event where a mystery bidder paid an impressive £23,000. Once again the three-Michelin starred chef has agreed to auction off his 2010 Festival night to raise money for the charity StreetSmart, which will be the official charity for the 2010 London Restaurant Festival.
The charity works with London’s homeless to provide food, clothes and shelter and is well known for working with London’s restaurant industry to raise money. As well as the auctioned Gordon Ramsay capsule, a percentage of the ten other capsules sold will also be allocated to the StreetSmart charity.
Each person to buy a capsule will have a top London chef create a delicious four-course meal for them and nine guests. There will also be a Champagne reception, which will be hosted at the brand new Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel and will be provided by the official London Restaurant Festival champagne sponsor G H Mumm. A varied wine selection which has been designed to complement each menu will also be served. As well as having one of the most stunning views in London, the ten diners will be able to meet the chefs who will be personally cooking for them all night.
