The Adelphi Kitchen are fired up to host a pop-up restaurant in a cocktail bar following a blaze which forced them to close earlier this month.
The fire, which took place during the early hours of June 3, forced the Adelphi Lane restaurant to close to the public after the blaze gutted the kitchen.
But the Adelphi Kitchen have decided to push forward whilst repairs are under way and launch a three-day pop-up in The Tippling House.
Adelphi Kitchen owner Chris Tonner explained: "After the destruction of the Adelphi Kitchen we thought it would be a good idea to pop-up somewhere in the city. We were thinking of other events to keep AK going on in the background and this made the most sense."
Chris, alongside Adelphi Kitchen head chef Murray Dawson, will take over the kitchen of the Belmont Street cocktail bar and restaurant to cook up their famous tasting platters for diners in a relaxed, social dining setting.
Chris added: "We did look at doing a menu for the event, but Tuesday is one of our busiest days which is when we offer our Taster Trays. They’ve got mac and cheese, pulled pork, the dirty steaks and slaws and it gives diners a chance to try a bit of everything.”
Running from June 23 to June 25, the Tippling Tray Food Taster will mash the two restaurant styles together, with The Tippling House team concocting a mini menu of Americana cocktails to accompany the charcoaled, barbecue food on offer.
In the meantime, Chris is hopeful the Adelphi Lane restaurant will be back on its feet by the middle of July, with plans in the works to refit the kitchen which was badly damaged by smoke.
He said: "It’s going good, the kitchen has been ripped out and we should have the electrician, plumbers and gas guys in on Monday.
"We’re hoping to reopen on July 13, so we have around four weeks from now but it really is a massive job. Everyone has just been really supportive and we can wait to reopen and push on with it."
