Restaurants hotels and pubs, including Fishy Fishy and The Loft Project, tell us about the extra activities their planning to attract customers.
Fishy Fishy Feast
On 24 September, Dermot O’Leary’s Fishy Fishy Seafood Brasseries in Poole and Brighton will be supporting maritime charity Seafarers UK’s Fish & Chip Feast. A percentage of proceeds from a special fish dish offered on the day will be given to the charity to help support fishermen and their communities who may face poverty, disability or bereavement as a result of their profession.
Mark Best from Marque restaurant in Sydney, the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best awards Breakthrough winner for 2010, will be in the UK on 16 September to host a degustation dinner at Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel. A collaboration with The Loft Project, the dinner will be available for just 12 guests in the hotel’s De Montfort Suite. Dishes will be adapted from Marque’s menu to best utilise local seasonal ingredients available in London.
Cloudy Chef’s Table
Marlborough winery Cloudy Bay will be hosting a Chef’s Table at Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill’s restaurant The Montagu from 4 October until early December. A five-course tasting menu matched with a selection of Cloudy Bay wines will be available for four to nine guests for lunch or dinner.
Tom Byng’s Byron hamburger restaurant chain is to introduce a Mo-Burger, in support of men’s health charity Movember, which notably encourages men to grow moustaches for the month. The burger, which contains anti-oxidant rich beetroot, will be available in every Byron outlet during November. Those customers sporting a moustache and have raised at least £25 for the charity, will be entitled to a free burger every day, Monday – Friday from 3pm-7pm.
