Netflix enthusiasts and food lovers in Los Angeles are in for a special treat. The popular streaming platform is gearing up to launch its very first pop-up restaurant called ‘Netflix Bites’ at the Short Stories Hotel on 115 S. Fairfax Ave starting from June 30. This exclusive dining experience aims to delight fans by offering dishes inspired by their favorite culinary shows that have been streamed on Netflix, bringing together the best of both worlds.
The pop-up restaurant will feature a stellar lineup of renowned celebrity chefs from Netflix series such as Chef’s Table, Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend, and Chef’s Table: Pizza. Notable names like Curtis Stone, Dominique Crenn, Rodney Scott, Ming Tsai, Ann Kim, Nadiya Hussain, Jacques Torres, and Andrew Zimmern will be present, tantalizing guests’ taste buds with their culinary expertise.
The concept behind the pop-up restaurant is to bridge the gap between the immensely popular culinary shows on Netflix and the actual tangible experience of savoring these delectable dishes. The menu has been carefully curated to deliver an immersive screen-to-table experience, providing guests with an extraordinary dining adventure.
Apart from the mouthwatering dishes, the restaurant will also be a haven for cocktail enthusiasts. Acclaimed mixologists such as Frankie Solarik, Julie Reiner, LP O’Brien, and Kate Gerwin, known for their appearances on Drink Masters, will create custom cocktails that perfectly complement the gastronomic offerings.
Josh Simon, the Vice President of Consumer Products at Netflix, expressed his excitement about the ‘Netflix Bites’ dining experience. He emphasized the goal of creating an immersive setting where foodies and binge-watchers can truly indulge in their favorite culinary shows. Simon also expressed enthusiasm about collaborating with the celebrity chefs who will bring Netflix’s vision to life.
Netflix has previously organized immersive experience events like The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience, Stranger Things: The Experience, and Money Heist: The Experience. The pop-up restaurant adds to the list of live experiences offered by Netflix. ‘Netflix Bites’ promises to be an unforgettable adventure for avid viewers, providing a unique opportunity to taste the creations of renowned chefs and bring their crafted flavors to the diverse audience in Los Angeles.
