2. Picnics at the Hideaway
A bun’s hurl from the Palmerston (or perhaps an elephant roll down Cathcart Hill) is Archway’s cutest den of iniquity, where all through April a pop-up kitchen from Picnic is about to lay down its rug.
For the unitiated, Picnic is the brainchild of one Nick Stuart, a gourmet jacket potato stall regular at Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Bestival. And this is meant to celebrating the best of the, ahem, British outdoors by offering up three different menus every weekend.
Saturday night’s dinner thing will feature a host of British tapas sharing plates, such as pork belly cracklings, caramelised apples and cauliflower purée, and venison and parsnip kebabs. Sunday brunch options include sweet and savoury pancakes and fruit smoothies, whilst supper offers a selection of treats like homemade burgers, a board of herb and lemon roast chicken with stuffing, and potted smoked salmon with lemon & toast.
Yup, it’s definitely a better way to spend the weekend than battling this goddamn sub-zero outdoors.
Launch party is this Saturday, 6th April, and thereafter every Saturday and Sunday during April 2013. Saturday night£15 (includes two tapas and one side), Sunday supper £10 (to include one main and two sides). Email email@example.com 114 Junction Road N19.
