rooftop views

Nothing wrong with dreaming away with some good indian summer memories. One of my favourite ones lately is the first weekends of September. We went to the Dalston Roof Park , just around the corner of our new place, and enjoyed an amazing Southern American syle lazy lunch, organised by The Art of Dining, a young company that combines food, set design and art (anybody who knows me even a little bit would know I am a sucker for a combination like that!)

It definitely felt like the laziest lunch in London town that Sunday, with five  courses, picnic baskets filled with treasures, old romantic novels and slightly Southern American style music in the background. This all combined with cocktails, East-London views and a good, after summer sun made it an incredible, chilled day. Exactly how a Sunday should be.

 

On the menu:

Baked beans slow cooked bean and molasses soup served in an American biscuit bowl

Corn on the cob served Mexican style, with sour cream, parmesan, cumin, chilli and lime- Wilted bacon and shrimphot saladRibs’n’slaw, lamb ribs with Moroccan style slaw and pickles

Sweet potato ice cream with a ginger bread flake

(Definitely check out their website for some more pop-up culinair fests to come: www.theartofdining.co.uk)

Went for a coffee at Beyond Retro on the way.

After the lazy lunch, we decided to do some low effort activities as we where too full to move. We went to check out some galleries at the Hackney Wicked Festival and just enjoyed coffee, drinks and art.

Let’s all hope for more sunny weekends to come, or just dream away with the ones we had.
