The David Lynch Dining Experience: Menu Includes Cherry Pie And Something That’s Not An Animal

How does a David Lynch movie taste?

David Lynch & ChickenIt might be a surreal and therefor very appropriate question, but David Lynch fans near London will actually be able to find out the answer. On June 6th 2013, The Artist Dining Room will host “an evening inspired by the multi-faceted surreal realm of artist, director, musician and Eagle Scout, David Lynch.

The menu, carefully crafted by chef Matthew Phelps, includes Waldo’s Lament as a starter, Henry’s (Ir)regular Chickens and ‘I’m not an animal!’ (v) as the main courses and, what else, cherry pie and coffee (but backwards!) for dessert. The night will be hosted by suave Benjamin Louche of The Double R Club fame and will also feature Lynchian installations and performances.

Date: Thursday 6th of June 2013, 7:30pm
Venue: Sunbury House, 1 Andrews Road, London, E8 4QL
Tickets: £36.50/person (more info)
