What is it?
To welcome the sunny season to London this June (we can always hope), Mile High’s ‘cabin crew’ bring you their answer to ‘la dolce vita’ – Destination: Sicily.
Mile High returns with an explosion of colour, flavour and music in the heart of West London. The event will take place in a hidden location on South Regent Street, St James’s, part of The Crown Estate’s £500m investment plan for the area. Expect authentic Italian swing in a vibrant and welcoming interior, combined with passionate service and a buzzy atmosphere, influenced by the island’s fiery, core. There will also be cocktails to complement the menu’s light and summery flavours perfectly.
As part of each guest’s journey, talented ex-Moro chef Oliver Templeton will take you on a four-course culinary voyage to the heart of the island. Drawing on Sicilian cuisine’s Arab, Greek and Spanish influences, the menu will feature an array of authentic dishes with a modern twist. These will include; Swordfish Marinated in Orange and Cinnamon with Fennel and Pine Nuts, Pasta Norma, Slow Roasted Pork Belly with Braised Hispi Cabbage, White Beans and Sicilian Lemon and finally Burnt Peach Gelato with Pistachio Praline and Amaretti Biscotti.
Mile High is inspired by the golden age of 1950s air travel, when leg room meant doing the twist and turbulence was a byproduct of the bar steward’s cocktail shaker. On arrival, air hostesses in Pan-Am inspired attire will welcome guests to the departure lounge, home of Mile High’s airborne DJ division. Diners can enjoy ‘check in’ Campari cocktails and gourmet bar snacks served with pencil moustaches and a smile before embarking on Mile High’s chosen foodie destination. Access to the departure lounge bar will be available from 7pm for non-diners to enjoy cocktails and tunes spun by one of Mile High’s talented guest DJs.
