OpenTable are creating a three-day restaurant pop-up to celebrate underrepresented cuisines in London!

OpenTable and Carousel are opening a three-day restaurant pop-up!

More than 55% of Londoners agree that there should be more lesser known cuisines represented in London restaurants, markets and pop-ups, with London’s millennials are the driving force behind this demand for a more diverse food scene, apparently.

On Thursday 22nd August, OpenTable and Carousel, Marylebone’s chic dining venue, will launch a three-day pop-up to champion a selection of the most underrepresented cuisines in the capital, according to Londoners.

Despite London’s culinary diversity, there are still some cuisines from the world’s 195 countries that diners say are lesser known across the city’s restaurant scene.

With more than 55% of diners recently revealing they would like to see some of the less familiar cuisines receive greater recognition, OpenTable has teamed up with Carousel to bring London’s diners the top six cuisines they believe are most underrepresented, including  Romanian, Goan, Slovenian, Polynesian, Armenian and Ukrainian.

The three-day pop up will bring to life these cuisines through a specially curated sharing style menu consisting of tasty treats, from Ukrainian Barbecued Khorovats and Goan Fish Curry to Armenian Flatbreads and Pistachio and Walnut Baklava.

Demand for the presence of more underrepresented cuisines comes largely from London’s millennials, with 62% of 18-24-year olds and 66% of 25-34 years agreeing that under the radar dishes need to be better highlighted in the capital’s booming food scene, as market halls and pop-ups continue to evolve across the city.

From Thursday 22nd August – Saturday 24th August at 7pm, 30 guests per evening will be able to make a reservation at Carousel for the sharing-style menu, including six delectable dishes, a welcome cocktail, half a bottle of wine and a digestif for £50pp at their website.

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
