Marble Arch Food Tours for Marylebone Food Festival
12 January 2018
This March marks the inaugural Marylebone Food Festival and we are proud to support with our own food tours in the immediate Marble Arch area.
This ten-day celebration, running from 8-18 March, takes place in part of Marble Arch’s celebrating dining and leisure district and one of London’s most exciting and diverse culinary destinations. The Marylebone Food Festival is the creation of The Portman Estate and The Howard de Walden Estate and supported by the surrounding BIDs. Home to some of the most reputable names on the UK food scene, Marylebone Food Festival will shine a spotlight on restaurants and talented chefs with an impressive line-up of events – including our Marble Arch Food Tours!
Our Marble Arch Food Tours will include a Wine Tasting Tour to wind down after the hectic work day, as well as a whistle-stop lunch time ‘Spring Clean’ Tour highlighting the exciting vegan and vegetarian options in the area! Also, we have added a mixology class at The Pickled Hen that will teach you basic skills and a signature cocktail to impress with. Whilst dates are not confirmed as of yet, the events will be held the week of 12 March. So, please register your interest for your desired event(s) to Taylore in the BID Team to receive updates! Watch this space for all news and added Marble Arch events in part with the Marylebone Food Festival.
Opening the Festival on 8 March is an unmissable dining experience; taking place in a dramatic medieval church behind Oxford Street – The Church of the Annunciation, Marble Arch – over ten of the restaurants and wine bars in the Marble Arch and Marylebone area will collaborate to prepare an exclusive taster menu with dishes and flavours from around the world, all paired with a specially curated wine flight.
Michelin Starred Indian restaurant Trishna, local favourites The Providores and Picture, Seymour Place’s Bernardi’s and Lurra, The Langham’s Roux at The Landau, and cheeseroom La Fromagerie, will all prepare a course, followed by chocolate caviar by award-winning chocolatier, Rococo Chocolates. Local wine bars, Clarette, Le Vieux Comptoir and Blandford Comptoir, will serve perfectly matched wine pairings to enjoy alongside the dishes. Seymour’s Parlour of The Zetter Townhouse will partner with Marylebone Gin to create an exclusive gin-based cocktail for the guests. Tickets for the launch dining experience cost £150 per person and are available here, with more names will be announced in the coming weeks.
Another Festival highlight includes the Marylebone Street Kitchen – an all-day al fresco food fiesta with a twist. Free to attend, Marylebone Street Kitchen will bring together a programme of drink and dining experiences, from masterclasses and workshops to cook-offs, tastings and talks, alongside street food and drinks from the likes of The Grazing Goat, Fratelli Greci and Hoppers.
A host of Marble Arch and Marylebone restaurants, including Boxcar and The Gate Marylebone will offer a specially curated set menu throughout the duration of the Festival, with a contribution from every special set menu ordered going to support the event’s charity partner, the Marylebone Food Cycle. In addition, the restaurants, neighbourhood cafés, bars and food shops, such as Jikoni and Carousel will also deliver one-off collaborations, food tours and exclusive dining experiences.
