5th June: Social Sunday 2016 for Hospitality Action

05 April, 2016

Following the success of last year’s event, on Sunday 5th June 2016 ‘Social Sunday’ will be returning to The Social Company restaurants. Jason Atherton and the head chefs at his London-based restaurants will host a series of collaborative lunches, welcoming fellow top chefs from the UK’s dining scene to cook a bespoke menu in aid of Hospitality Action.

Available for one service only, each collaboration promises a unique dining experience. Joining Jason Atherton at his flagship restaurant, Pollen Street Social, will be Tom Kerridge, Sat Bains and Claude Bosi, for an all-Michelin-star line-up.

Across the street at Little Social, Greg Marchand from recently opened critic’s favourite, Frenchie, will be creating an impromptu menu inspired by produce collected on a market road trip to France with Head Chef, Cary Docherty.

Tom Sellers of Story will be teaming up with Paul Hood at Michelin-starred Social Eating House, whilst Nieves Barragán-Mohacho of Barrafina will be joining forces with Frankie Van Loo at Social Wine & Tapas for a menu showcasing the best of London’s tapas dishes.

Liam Smith-Laing, of Soho newcomer 100 Wardour Street, will be heading to City Social to create a tasting menu with a view with Head Chef, Paul Walsh.

Alex Craciun, chef patron at the latest addition to The Social Company’s portfolio, Sosharu, will be using the event to showcase an omakase-style menu, the likes of which he will be launching in Kisetsu, the fine dining chef’s table restaurant within Sosharu, set to open later this spring.

To round up a weekend of gastronomic events, Jason Atherton will be hosting a private dinner for 16 in the Penthouse of The London EDITION with Berners Tavern’s Phil Carmichael on Monday 6th June.

Each lunch will be a ticketed event, priced between £90 and £250 per head depending on the restaurant, with all proceeds raised going directly to Hospitality Action.

Established in 1837, Hospitality Action has offered vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK and who find themselves in crisis. With all staff working for free on the day, and suppliers donating their produce, Social Sunday is a celebration of the generosity and collaborative spirit of the hospitality industry as well as the creativity of some of the country’s most talented chefs.
