The French Laudry pop up restaurant

Bringing a taste of gourmet French cuisine and American finesse to London, Chef Thomas Keller's three Michelin-starred Napa Valley restaurant was replicated in this one-off pop-up event at Harrods.

Open for service between Saturday 1st October and Monday 10th October 2011, this groundbreaking culinary collaboration saw twenty lunch and dinner seatings, with 1,400 diners experiencing a nine-course Chef's Tasting Menu.

Under the helm of award-winning chef Thomas Keller and his elite staff from the Napa Valley restaurant, the exclusive event faithfully recreated the refined glamour of The French Laundry in the surroundings of the Georgian Restaurant.

The imaginative set menu included a succession of innovative tastes, from ignature Oysters & Pearls to razor clams, sweet corn and celeriac, and Atlantic salmon cornet in a sesame seed tuile, representing the very best of the French Laundry and reflecting Keller's favourite ingredients.
