Beirut comes to St James’s first pop-up restaurant with Mile High

From 1-4 May 2013, St James’s will be hosting its first pop-up restaurant experience with Mile High’s “Destination Beirut”, based in a secret location within this unique part of London’s West End. A return trip is then scheduled from 8-11 May.

This event will take place in a hidden location on Regent Street St James’s. The intimate space will replicate interiors of a 1950s Lebanese café reminiscent of the “Paris of the Middle East”.

Anthea Harries, Portfolio Manager for St James's at The Crown Estate, said: “St James’s is the ultimate blend of elegant heritage and cutting edge trend. As part of our £500m investment vision for the area we’re looking to enhance the existing restaurant offer by attracting acclaimed culinary talent. Mile High is the perfect example of this, as a pop-up restaurant which seeks to combine world class food with special and unique locations, making for an unforgettable experience. We’re delighted they chose St James’s as the next destination on their tour.”                   

Embracing The Crown Estate’s exciting vision for the area, activities like Mile High will give visitors to the area the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience in locations previously not used as restaurant space.

Mile High in St James’s will take each guest on a culinary journey, with talented ex-Moro chef Oliver Templeton who will serve up a four-course Levantine feast. Taking you on a culinary voyage of discovery, the menu will feature an array of authentic dishes with a modern twist such as smoked labneh with sour cherries, broad beans, asparagus and crisp bread followed by rose water and pomegranate jelly with cardamom custard and fresh pomegranate seeds for dessert, delivering a fascinating mix of Arab, Ottoman and French art nouveau influences.
