The cool thing about supper clubs is that they sometimes take place in unusual locations. Last night I went to a Bert & May supper club that took place at their tile shop.
Eating dinner with fifty odd fellow diners in a tile shop is already pretty awesome, but what gave this event the extra wow factor was that Bert & May's stylish showroom is set right on the regent's canal up near Victoria park. Every month Bert & May host a supper club to showcase their new range of products.
After we arrived, my friend and I walked around the shop admiring the different styles of tiles while sipping a sherry and lemonade cocktail. (Apparently sherry is making a cocktail) There were so many lovely tiles, that I caught myself redesigning my bathroom in my head.
We walked out towards the canal side where the owner has moored his barge and we enjoyed the last bits of sunshine while gazpacho shots and stuffed mussels canapés were coming round.
Time to sit down. The tables were set with tableware made by a local artist and for sale at Bert @ May.
First course was a sea bass ceviche with julienned mango and crushes cashew nuts.
There were two choices of salads; a tomato salad and a flowery green salad.
For dessert we were served an orange polenta cake with dehydrated orange on top and an orange blossom cream on the side.
