Immersive pop-up restaurant group Shuttlecock is to set up a permanent base in London's Marylebone this August, called Carousel.
Seeking to offer "unique adventures in flavour, design, performance and music", it will partner with Argentine chef Javier Rodriguez, who will take a month-long residency.
Previously the chef at the El Papagayo restaurant in Argentina, Rodriguez will bring his style of travel-inspired cooking to the site, referencing names such as Noma in Copenhagen, Tetsuyas in Sydney, Restaurant Andre in Singapore, Viajante in London, and La Gloria in Lima.
His menu will include dishes such as the rockmelon and sobrasad; crispy leeks and provolone; pork skin, quince aioli and smoked pimentón and roasted pine nuts; steamed eggplant, grilled anchovies and lemon chimichurri on toast; cow fat bread, charred corn custard, cock's comb muesli and chañar brown butter.
There will also be a "colour dining" pop-up area below the restaurant, from Art of Dining chef-designer duo, which includes chef Ellen Parr (of Moro) and set designer Alice Hodge, who will bring together food and art to try and make memorable, unusual dining experiences.
The pop-up will focus on stimulating the five senses with bright colours and changing music, including changing the colour of your plate, glass and the dining room, with each course. The pop-up evening will cost £50 per person, and include a five-course meal and welcome drink.
Shuttlecock has specialised in creating original, multi-sensory pop-ups across London, including previous incarnations Mile High, Rumble at the Deli, and the Great Indian Peninsula Railway.
