Supper Clubs are back in East Village this autumn, offering a series ofensory dining experiences.
Diners will feast their eyes on extravagant dishes, get their hands dirty with interactive sessions and surprise their taste buds with menus creatively designed to awaken the senses of sight, taste, touch, smell, and sound.
First in the series is Gelato - as you’ve never seen it before, hosted by Italian gelato experts La Gelatiera on Wednesday 17 October at 7pm. The supper club features six sweet and savoury courses and cocktails, each centring around Italian ice cream.
From ‘Panzanella al Gelato’, a delicious Tuscan salad with extra virgin olive oil gelato, to ‘Avo-fantastico’, avocado with a chill and dark chocolate sorbet stone, these unique, eye-popping creations are perfect for the ‘gram. View the full menu here.
