Big chunks of meaty beef and delicate scented flowers might seem like a somewhat odd and contrasting pairing to the untrained eye. However, to the esteemed foodies among us, these are clearly the key ingredients for a standout supper. At least, that’s what The Newman Street Tavern supper club is hoping, with their new series of monthly suppers, each themed around a unique menu.
The Tavern’s monthly supper clubs will each feature a five course tasting menu at a very reasonable price, as well as the option of specifically paired wine to enhance the flavour of your food…and who doesn’t enjoy a glass (or bottle) of wine with dinner?
This month’s theme is ‘Beef Week’ and includes short-rib bone broth with Madeira, Butcher’s cut of grilled Galloway steak with bone marrow, a selection of sauces, steak-cut chips and buttered greens, and a Cow’s milk cheese board. The Handbook advises tucking your napkin into your shirt for this one, as things could get messy!
Next month’s supper will see a horticultural theme as the Newman Street Tavern celebrates the Chelsea Flower Show with a menu entirely inspired by all the ingredients you can find in a typical English country garden. Don’t worry though, weed killer and deflated footballs are not on the menu. Instead, diners will be treated to such green-fingered delights as elderflower fritters and blossom jelly.
This immersive dining experience is sure to be enjoyable and is perfect for anyone who loves a theme (just don’t invite your friend who always tries to get you to join them at barn dancing). Revel in not having to sing for your supper and instead, just eat it!
