Inspired by the golden age of 1950s air travel, Mile High is an exciting new pop-up restaurant which has landed in London’s West End.
On arrival guests are ushered into to the ‘departure lounge’, home of Mile High’s airborne DJ division, and are greeted by air hostesses clad in Pan-Am inspired attire. Diners can then enjoy ‘check in’ Campari cocktails and gourmet bar snacks served with pencil moustaches and a smile before embarking on Mile High’s chosen foodie destination. Access to the departure lounge bar will be available from 9pm for non-diners to enjoy cocktails and tunes spun by one of Mile High’s talented guest DJs.
The restaurant is the third in a successful series from the Templeton family- who share a wealth of experience from the event, theatre, culinary, cocktail, music and advertising worlds.
This latest addition to the Mile High club will have a particular focus on Sicilian cuisine and culture- expect authentic Italian swing in a vibrant and welcoming interior influenced by the island’s fiery volcanic core.
As part of each guest’s journey, talented ex-Moro Chef Oliver Templeton will take you on a four-course culinary voyage to the heart of the island. Oliver said: “Mile High will bring an extraordinary culinary and creative experience, unlike anything else the area has seen before.”
Drawing on Sicilian cuisine’s Arab, Greek and Spanish influences, the menu will feature an array of authentic dishes with a modern twist. These will include; Swordfish Marinated in Orange and Cinnamon with Fennel and Crispy Capers, Crispy Veal Sweetbreads, Wild Rice Risotto, Pickled Shallots and Chive Pesto, Slow Roasted Pork Belly with Braised Hispi Cabbage, White Beans and Sicilian Lemon and finally Burnt Peach and Cherry Gelato or White Chocolate and Fig Gelato.
The cocktails will be packed with Italian “gusto” – even more refreshing than a Sicilian orange or a morning dip in the Mediterranean – complimenting the menu’s light and summery flavors perfectly.
Destination Sicily first opens its doors between 12th and 15th June, with a return trip scheduled from 19th to 22nd June 2013.Mile High will host also host a final destination in September; Destination Mozambique.
