Sardine to host series of al fresco Provencal lunches within grounds of Parasol unit and Victoria Miro art galleries

Alex Jackson’s Southern-French restaurant Sardine, which borders Islington and Hackney, will return with a series of al fresco lunches throughout August, held within the glorious gardens of neighbouring Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art and Victoria Miro art galleries, in partnership with Mastercard® Priceless® Cities.

Following the sell-out success of Sardine’s first al fresco event held in the gallery gardens in 2017, lunches are take place across six individual dates, – the 4th, 5th, 11th, 12TH, 18th and 19th of August.  Guests will be welcomed into the stunning garden area to enjoy a bountiful, summery French lunch, cooked by Alex and the Sardine team.

Accompanied by music, and set amidst one of London’s most interesting inner-city garden spaces, the afternoon will recreate those leisurely, sun-soaked community lunches so popular amongst locals in Provence and the rest of France’s warmer climes.

Showcasing the best of Alex’s rustic, lovingly-cooked Provencal cuisine, the meal will begin with large plates of Tomato & Tapenade tart and Mozzarella with Black Figs & Basil. For the main event Alex will cook Whole Salt-Baked Sea Trout, which will be cracked open in front of guests on the terrace and served with Braised Beans and Aïoli.

Sardine serve a classic for dessert – Nougat Ice Cream and Salted Fennel Biscuits. There’ll be plenty of Sardine’s infamous petit-aperitif cocktails on offer, not to mention a good selection of white wines, Crémant and of course, Rosé.
