The Disappearing Dining Club launches new pop-up

Shoreditch restaurant The Disappearing Dining Club is launching a five-week pop-up restaurant called Too Much is Never Enough at 123 Bethnal Green Road, a gift-and-fashion boutique and formerly a clandestine gun supplier. The event will take place from 22 November to 22 December.

Each part of the three-course dinner takes place on a different floor of the Grade II-listed Victorian terrace. A canapé reception in the menswear department on the second floor will start the meal. Guests can tuck into nibbles such as potted meat on sourdough toast, and mini Montgomery-cheese pasties, washed down with gin and rum punches served in bone-china cups.

The main course will be served in ladieswear, on the first floor. Guests can serve themselves from cauldrons of slow-cooked stews: choices include coq au vin or roast-pumpkin stew with Puy lentils and chestnuts, both accompanied by winter salads.

Dessert will take place in the shop’s Bunker Café. The sweet tasting plate will comprise hot doughnuts with chocolate-and-toffee sauce served with ice-cold shots of spiced rum, warm mince pies, rum truffles and British cheeses.

After the meal, the evening will continue with late-night drinks and cocktails, music and dancing from DJs such as Ollie Russian (My Band’s Better Than Your Band), Dirty Omar (Latitude) and Chris Coco (Melodica).

The meal costs £50, including food, three cocktails and a glass of wine. The restaurant opens on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 6pm; last entry is at 9pm. To book, call 07432 833039 or visit The Disappearing Dining Club website. Spaces are limited to 60 people each evening.

In-store shopping is optional and can take place at any time during the evening. Get a sneak preview on Tumblr.
