Here's your chance to feast like a Lannister: HBO is hosting an "exclusive" pop-up inspired by Game of Thrones in London this month. According to its website, the pop-up is being held to promote the release of the show's fourth season on Blu-ray. Called All Men Must Dine, HBO promises the restaurant will serve diners a "one-of-kind epic banquet" featuring "the finest delicacies Westeros has to offer." The Independent writes that this means dishes like "The Lies of Tyrion Lannister and his Proclaimed Innocence," which is poached veal tongue with beetroot, horseradish, and mustard. There is no word regarding whether or not the pop-up will serve one of the many Game of Thrones-themed wines or beers.
Who is your favorite Game of Thrones character, and what would you cook to win their heart?
The pop-up — which is themed around "a clandestine meeting of the Small Council in King's Landing" — will be held over three nights at the Andaz Liverpool Hotel in London, starting February 13. The meal itself will be cooked up by "pop-up connoisseurs" and catering company The Wandering Chef, and cocktails will be handled by Grosvenor Mixologists. To score a seat at the table, fans must enter a competition online, which requires answering the question, "Who is your favorite Game of Thrones character, and what would you cook to win their heart?" Entries must be submitted today to win a pair of tickets to the dinner.
HBO is a bit late to the the Game of Thrones-themed dinner idea. Smack Shack, a restaurant in Minneapolis served up a menu inspired by the show last year. It featured plenty of meaty and hearty dishes like herb-crusted crown rack of lamb ribs and goose leg confit.
