If you enjoy plotting regicide while consuming trenchers of poached veal tongue and goblets brimming with blood-red wine, then a pop-up restaurant based on hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" could satisfy your appetites.
This Valentine's day weekend, the U.S. television network HBO will join forces with dining experience experts The Wandering Chef and Grosvenor Mixologists to give U.K. binge-watchers a "Game of Thrones one-of-kind epic banquet."
Though, as any fan of the TV series and books will tell you, a lot of banquets in Westeros – particularly ones associated with weddings – haven't had happy endings. Just ask Joffrey and Robb Stark.
Nonetheless, During the 13th to the 15th February, three Westeros-themed banquets will take place, where 12 lucky entrants (plus one guest) for each meal will be able to eat at the "All Men Must Dine" feast at the Andaz hotel, on Liverpool Street, London. Whilst the menu is still being cooked up, the organizers have told diners to expect a course on "The lies of Tyrion Lannister and his proclaimed innocence" and a dish of poached veal tongue with beetroot, "oldtown mustard" and horseradish, all served alongside lavish cocktails in a Games of Thrones style setting.
