Moro-trained Art of Dining team to open school dinner inspired pop-up
A new pop-up restaurant in London's Clapton is to serve a five-course menu inspired by classic school dinners.
Open from 22 July to 6 August, the After School Club is from Moro-trained chef Ellen Parr and set designer Alice Hodge, under the banner the Art of Dining, and is found within the Round Chapel Old School Rooms in Clapton, East London, reports http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/the-filter/11722853/The-pop-up-restaurant-that-turns-school-dinners-into-fine-dining.html" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">The Telegraphtoday.
The duo has updated the space, including school-related décor such as blackboard tables, and menus disguised as homework books. Waiting staff will also be dressed as prefects.
The menu will feature updated twists on everything from alphabetti spaghetti to packed lunches, and "free milk" redesigned as cocktails.
Tickets will cost £55 from the Art of Dining website, and guests can choose to dress up in the school theme if they choose.
Parr and Hodge met while at university in Glasgow, and set up the Art of Dining to allow them to collaborate on pop-up concepts, including in spaces such as community halls, gardens, and warehouses.
