Cuisson’s Pop-Down supper club

Jun 22, 15 Cuisson’s Pop-Down supper club

Pop-up’s are everywhere nowadays but how about a pop-down? The concept is really a play on words as the events take place in the basement of Borough Barista, an independent coffee shop in St.James.  The dinners were created by luxury gastronomy experts, Cuisson and the POP-Down will be open Thursday-Saturday evening throughout the summer. Moving away from the usual supper club concept, POP-Down promises to deliver inventive, high-end dining at affordable prices.

Despite being downstairs, the venue has a welcoming vibe and the kitchen is open for everyone to watch the chefs at work. We were also invited to help with the plating up of the food but it seems most of us were more interested in taking pictures for Instagram then in plating up food. But, what do you expect from a supperclub? As an added bonus, the chefs would come round and have a chat about what we were eating and any feedback or questions that we might have had about the food.

The food was delicious and plated up innovatively. I really enjoyed the potatoes rolled in burnt hay with garlic sauce to start. The sous vide salmon was melt in your mouth good. I was a bit apprehensive of the sous vide salmon but I could have easily had another plate. The chicken parfait was a tower of pate and we all loved the platter of desserts, especially the pop rock garnish for one of the desserts. There was also a separate dessert bar which we didn’t try but all of the desserts featured in the bar were on our platter.
