On Thursday 22nd August, OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, and Carousel, Marylebone’s chic dining venue, will launch a three-day pop-up to champion a selection of the most underrepresented cuisines in the capital, according to Londoners.
Despite London’s culinary diversity, there are still some cuisines from the world’s 195 countries that diners say are lesser-known across the city’s restaurant scene.
With more than 55% of diners recently revealing they would like to see some of the less familiar cuisines receive greater recognition, OpenTable teamed up with Carousel to bring London’s diners the top six cuisines they believe are most underrepresented, including Romanian, Goan, Slovenian, Polynesian, Armenian and Ukrainian.
The three-day pop up will bring to life these cuisines through a specially curated sharing style menu consisting of tasty treats, from Ukrainian Barbecued Khorovats and Goan Fish Curry to Armenian Flatbreads and Pistachio and Walnut Baklava.
Adrian Valeriano, VP EMEA comments: “OpenTable has always been passionate about championing food across the globe, and with London’s culinary diversity, embracing that means looking beyond the range of food already available and exploring what might be missing.”
“From our Endangered Dishes pop up to London’s Edible Map, we have continued to encourage Londoners to try new cuisines and explore changing food trends, helping our diners find the right restaurant for anything.”
Starting from Thursday 22nd August – Saturday 24th August at 7pm, 30 guests per evening will be able to make a reservation at Carousel for the sharing-style menu, including six delectable dishes, a welcome cocktail, half a bottle of wine and a digestif for £50pp at https://www.opentable.co.uk/r/ldn-195-london.
