From now until December 31st , you have the opportunity to experience one of the most exciting culinary pop-ups London has ever seen (dates have even been extended due to its immense popularity). The Cube, sponsored by home electronics company Electrolux, is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to have some of Britain’s most respected Michelin-starred chefs cook a bespoke menu for you and 17 other lucky guests. The pop-up in situated on the uppermost level of the Royal Festival Hall, overlooking the River Thames and the Houses of Parliament. The space designed for The Cube at the top of the Royal Festival Hall (shown above) is the epitome of Scandinavian design, with a minimalist, all-white décor accented with dark wood and pops of color. The structure feels both light and fresh; the ideal setting for the chefs to work their magic.
The Cube chefs have been hand-plucked from around Britain to bring their distinct brands of culinary excellence to the London pop-up. Famous faces include Chef Tom Kitchin (The Kitchin, Leith), Chef Sat Bains (Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms, Nottingham), Chef Daniel Clifford (Midsummer House, Cambridge) and Chef Claude Bosi and Jonray and Peter Sanchez-Inglesias (Casamia, Westbury on Trym).
The Cube will be open everyday, with lunch served at noon (£175 per person) and dinner beginning at 7pm (£215 per person). Seatings are limited to 18 people, so get there early if you want to snag one of these coveted spots. Guests can expect their dining experience to begin with a champagne reception, followed by a six-course tasting menu (a minimum of six, there could be more depending on where the chef’s creative whimsy takes him) with wines pairings at each course.
After its London residency, The Cube will continue on a tour of Europe popping up atop iconic buildings in Europe’s most prestigious cities. Watch this space for more info!
