Platterform have taken over the roof space on Martello Street, London Fields, previously used by Coppa last summer, and have created a maritime-themed pop-up with a series of different chefs all cooking seafood. Dave Yorkston starts on 13th Feb, followed by Ayam Legend (6th - 15th March), Vinn Goute (20th - 29th March), and finally The Foragers, (3rd - 19th April).
"Following the successful Skylodge in December, Platterform are back with an exciting new concept in the same space (on the roof of the Hothouse in London Fields). It is called 'Platterform's Sea Adventure Series' and it will run for 15 weeks with guest chefs taking up residency every 2-3 weeks. See line up attached together with menus for chapter 1 and 2.
The Maiden Voyage (as the name suggests) is our first adventure out at sea. Circumnavigating the North Sea we discover the stark similarities between the British, Dutch and Scandinavian palate when it comes to enjoying seafood. A playful approach is also taken to reconstruct some of these familiar North European seafood dishes, aiming to capture the imagination, surprise the taste buds and guarantee a funfilled maiden voyage.
Maid in the Mist (chapter 2) starts on 13th February and welcomes Dave Yorkston of Yorkston Smoke House on board. In the coming weeks Dave will be installing his very own custom made cold smoker on our rooftop in preparation for his 3 week residency focused on promoting his artisanal smoked fish delicacies. Dave's smoked fish is so good that he sells it to his very own fishmonger!
Each chef will deliver a 4 course seafood experience with an after dinner drink thrown in for good measure. The ticket price is £30.
In this way each chef collaboration will be unique, offering entirely different seafood experiences with a fun narrative and visual element to compliment.
As a mainstay for the 15 week run we are offering rum ration cocktails and craft beers with a nautical theme at our Shanty Shack main bar and special after dinner cocktails at our newly installed second bar- the Captain's Cabin. Enjoy drinks, sea shanty music and games with the captain after dinner!
Walk-ins are most certainly still welcome where drinks and bar snacks will be available all night."
