PokerStars "Play To Eat" Restaurant Fully Booked

PokerStars "Play To Eat" Restaurant Fully BookedPokerStars launched its innovative “Play To Eat” restaurant in London to coincide with the start of the 2015 United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) season which kicks off on January 20th. Although initially scheduled to open for just three days between January 19-21, the All-In Kitchen in Haggerston is already fully booked leading PokerStars to now extend its dates to also include the 26th and 27th. Furthermore, there are plans to introduce the concept to other locations in the future as the PokerStars sponsored UKIPT continues its tour across the United Kingdom throughout 2015.
The popular pop-up dining venue was undertaken in collaboration with renowned restauranteurs Jones & Sons, with the three course specially designed poker-themed menu including such dishes as the ‘Royal Flush’ crab thermidor’, ‘Queen Scallops’, and ‘4 of a Kind Lamb Chops. Commenting on his innovative new menu, Andy Jones explained:
“I love food and never shy away from the [poker] tables when I get a chance. Having the opportunity to create a menu that combines two of my favorite things was something I jumped at.. [creating] the dishes was a lot of fun [and] I can’t wait to see the results and serve up some Aces.”
Whilst dining out at the All-In Kitchen would cost £50 ($75.80) per head, customers are offered the opportunity to receive a discount or even the whole meal for free simply by playing a quick game of poker. Finishing with more than your original starting stack of 10,000 chips will mean you get to eat for free, those with 5,000 and above would have to pay a mere £5 ($7.60), while below 5,000 chips would set the player back a modest £10 ($15.25) for the meal.
Needless to say the venue has already proven a great success in London, with The Telegraph stating: “The UK’s first pay-by-poker restaurant has landed, and I’m pleased to report it is ace” and VICE describing the dining experience as “the ace of spades in life’s messy pile of cards.”
