“From episode to entrée, with Netflix Bites we are creating an in-person experience where fans can immerse themselves in their favourite food shows,” said Josh Simon, VP of Consumer Products at Netflix.
Netflix Bites – a Netflix-themed dining experience – is launching in LA later this month.
Opening on June 30th at LA’s Short Stories hotel, Netflix Bites will offer fans a tasting menu devised by chefs from popular Netflix cooking shows.
Participating chefs include Iron Chef’s Curtis Stone, Chef’s Table’s Dominique Crenn, Chef’s Table: BBQ’s Rodney Scott, Iron Chef’s Ming Tsai, Chef’s Table: Pizza’s Ann Kim, Nadiya Bakes’ Nadiya Hussain, Nailed It’s Jacques Torres and Iron Chef’s Andrew Zimmern.
Mixologists from Netflix’s Drink Masters – including Frankie Solarik, Julie Reiner, LP O’Brien and Kate Gerwin – also will craft custom cocktails for the drinks menu.
“Bringing my love of food to people across the world is one of the biggest thrills of my life but this screen-to-table experience of giving fans a taste of what happens on camera is just awesome,” said Michelin-starred chef Curtis Stone.
“The talented chefs and mixologists assembled means there is something for everyone, and I’m wildly excited that my team at Curtis Stone Events is involved in bringing Netflix Bites to life.”
Josh Simon, VP of Consumer Products at Netflix, added: “Netflix is already a destination for beloved food programming, from documentaries to competition shows.
“From episode to entrée, with Netflix Bites we are creating an in-person experience where fans can immerse themselves in their favourite food shows. We are excited to collaborate with these incredible chefs who will bring this vision to life and showcase an array of their delicious menus.
“Netflix Bites will marry our top food talent with the proven success of our popular live experiences – such as The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience, Stranger Things: The Experience, Money Heist: The Experience and more – that bring these worlds to life through immersive activations, retail stores and, now, restaurants.”
Netflix Bites will be open from 5pm to 10pm seven days a week. On Saturdays and Sundays, it will offer a brunch menu from 10am to 2pm. To book a reservation, head to www.NETFLIXBITES.com.
