PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Dear Friends, Summer is coming, and although we are excited for the warm June breezes, we are even more thrilled to present to you this highly anticipated June issue of Orlando Style. We are all relieved that it seems that this horrible pandemic is finally easing its pace and we hope people will be carful not to fall back into a new spike. With this development we see a new interest of businesses wanting to attract customers again through luxury magazines like Orlando Style in this regional market. In the general view of the national market, luxury magazine titles pull more readers and advertisers as fashion, arts, and lifestyle content retains its shiny appeal. During the pandemic, many consumers stopped buying print magazines, or gave up their subscription, but mostly to special interest magazines and those that failed to create a solid identity. This is in contrast to the fortunes of the luxury magazine market, which appears resilient to the wider change in consumer reading habits in the digital age. National insiders and authorities said that content on a tablet or iPad cannot match the experience of that “magazine moment.” ‘‘It is very hard to replicate the physical allure of a luxury magazine on other platforms. It has something to do with the sheen of the paper, the way that the ink sits on the page, the smell of money and desire that wafts off the page. Readers move into a different mode when they engage with a glossy luxury print magazine. Advertisers understand this.” “Many people say that print advertising is dead or dying, but glossy, lux magazines are holding their own,” say the media buyers of top, national Media Companies. “For many luxury advertising clients it is first and foremost the prime medium, more so than TV, because they know competitors will all be in there. High-end magazines are still number one for those advertisers.” Orlando Style Magazine and our affluent readers are ready for you. Let’s talk now.: info@styletome.com Thank you to all of our loyal advertisers, our readers, contributors, photographers and to my incredible Style Magazines’ team. We hope you enjoy this June Issue and the beginning of your summer, and we wish all of the dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day!

CITY NEWS

Summer is upon us and the month of June promises to be filled with a variety of fun-filled events for all! Before we dive into all the city has to offer though, let’s take a look back at the adventures we shared in May. Here are all the highlights, just in case you missed it! Everyone is a fan of something, and MEGACON Orlando is the place to celebrate all things pop culture. Attracting hundreds of thousands of fans each year across four big days, MEGACON Orlando is one of North America’s largest Comic, Sci-Fi, Horror, Anime, and Gaming events. From May 19th-22nd, fans got autographs and photos with their favorite guest, watched professional comic artists battle it out in popular Sketch Duels, learned from “How To” workshops, and took photos with their favorite costumed characters. With over 400,000 square feet of shopping, MEGACON was also a great place to buy unique gifts. This year’s event featured the stars of Lord of the Rings, Cobra Kai, The Mandalorian, WWE Superstars, and Harry Potter actor Matthew Lewis along with many others. The Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival is a 14day immersive cultural experience that was held this year in-person from May 17th-30th. It is the oldest, non-juried festival in the United States and a celebration of theater, art and music. The event featured hundreds of ticketed theatrical performances and a free outdoor music festival. Loch Haven Park served as the main campus for the festival, though in recent years programming has expanded to venues in nearby neighborhoods. The festival unites local, national, and international artists with the Central Florida community, creating a uniquely diverse arts experience. True to Fringe roots, all acts remained uncensored, exposing patrons to performances from mild to wild. Taking place over Memorial weekend from May 27th-29th, Orlando Carnival is a Caribbean – American carnival celebration that is colorful, chaotic and filled with revelry. This year they celebrated the 36th Annual Orlando Downtown Carnival and everyone was welcome to join the fun! The family-friendly event is all about celebrating and embracing Caribbean culture in a weekend filled with live rhythmic music, arts & crafts vendors, and more. The Orlando Carnival embraces multiculturalism, in fact, Orlando Carnival has been known to attract the largest congregation of both culturally

diverse participants and attendees including Americans, Indo-Caribbean, Afro-Caribbean, Hispanic-Caribbean and Asian-Caribbean. Over 20,000 people participate each year with thousands more in attendance. In celebration of American Craft Beer Week, Beer ‘Merica featured 100 different craft brews to sample from, all from the good ole US of A. The event was held lakeside at Gaston Edwards Park at Ivanhoe Village on Saturday, May 14th and included live music, food trucks, a game zone and plenty of craft brew samplings. Many attendees were dressed to impress in their most patriotic gear for the exciting chance to win their favorite beer for a year with the winner announced during the event. Once again this year, all proceeds for Beer ‘Merica benefitted Getaboard Foundation and Camaraderie Foundation. Guests who stopped by their booth were entered in for a chance to score prizes, tickets, and much more. The wild and popular Gatorpalooza event is back at the “Alligator Capital of the World. Gatorpalooza, Gatorland’s annual event which also celebrates the park’s birthday returned to the park from May 14th-15th. The event featured live music, food and craft vendors, artisans, games, appearances by the Gatorland Vlog Team and a bunch of alligators of course. On Saturday, the wild weekend got even wilder as guests watched crazy competitors participate in the Florida man challenge. Competitors raced through a muddy swamp, swarming with giant alligators in a triathlon-style event like no other. Gatorfest was included with park admission and Florida residents got half-off daily admissions during the entire month of May including Gatorpalooza weekend. May 9th was our last opportunity to explore the innovations that classic science fiction predicted for our future—such as holograms, robots and invisibility—while imagining what is coming next. The thrilling exhibition called “Science Fiction, Science Future” premiered at the Orlando Science Center earlier this year and focused on new and interesting interactions with technology via exhibits that allow guests to seemingly do the impossible. Visitors could become invisible, move objects with their minds and interact with a robot that copies movements. “Science Fiction, Science Future” also gave visitors a chance to predict the future by drawing and describing what they believe houses, transportation and the planet will look like.

‘RESTAURANT IMMERSION’ at London house by ‘The Viking Chef’ himself

To be truly ‘Immersed’ is to dive unreservedly deep into (and actually become a part of) the experience. That is the thought-provoking culinary journey that ‘Immersion’ at London House delivers to a select group of 22 guests each evening. This flavor-forward, sensory driven experience led by our multi award-winning, ‘Global Best Chef 2019’ and ‘Masterchef ’ TV Star Rikku O’Donnchu, ‘The Viking Chef ’, who is no stranger to the Michelin kitchens of the world, and promises to provide the most unique dining experience to culinary discerning guests from across the globe. We met with Chef Rikku to find out more about the Immersion experience, and what the fortunate few who can get a reservation may have in store for them. 26

| ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

So what is the immersion experience…? “This is a concept I developed to ignite the senses, to play with smells and textures, to taste the ingredients, connect with the atmosphere and evoke emotions, becoming truly immersed in the flavors and experience. Guests will leave with a sensation of overwhelming connection to the food, and the immersive journey they were just a part of..” says Chef Rikku. “The food itself sends a message, sometimes uncomfortable though it may be, and translates to the importance of environmentally friendly processes, environmentally friendly product, to keep our menus sustainable, considerate of the environment, but to also tell a story of some of the traumatic conditions that are a result of our overconsumption, overproduction and wastage of the


products we consume every day… …There is a reveal, a prestige, an unraveling at every corner. There is excitement, enchantment and a lust for the unknown. Some of the dishes touch on invasive species, some emanate from locally sourced and indigenous ingredients, whilst others bend reality into concept and imagination”. We asked Chef Rikku, why did you create immersion? “Because I believe food shouldn’t just be about eating, we are what we eat, we have a responsibility to our bodies, to our environment and to our minds. Everything we do has an impact on that. But food should also be exciting, it should be sensual, it should be provocative, and sometimes intrusive. Food isn’t here just to keep us alive, it’s here to provoke thought, to nourish, and for us to indulge our senses in the most complex and emotional way”. “Concepts can be built around one ingredient, but we also have luxury items available throughout the menu itself, all sustainably farmed and organic, but adding opulence to the overall experience to maximize consumers journey through the principle of true ‘Immersion’. Truffles, caviar and ethical foie gras are some of the products featured on the new multi course, multi-sensory menu. Ethical foie gras you say? Yes - we did! And you’re going to have to come eat here to find out what we mean!” Says Rikku. Two dishes in particular represent environmental change, and a desire to change things for the better. ‘Levitate’, Rikku’s signature dish, showcases the importance of low carbon footprint to avoid acid rain from polluting compost, which is effectively absorbed by the very things we consume. The other is ‘Amber’, an ‘insect preserved in amber’. This is a yellow transparent bread which encapsulates small dried citrus flavored insects, representing the forest, and deforestation in particular, with forest fires and the devastating effect that they have on the environment. ‘Immersion’ also features a water sommelier offering rare, artisanal, boutique water companies, all organically sourced from pH filtered, glass kept water, which adds to this unique experience. Our sommelier will walk you through a series of wine producing techniques, famous as well as unfamiliar wines, giving balanced and world class pairings, enhancing the meal to its full potential. There are molecular drinks pairings, including some reimagined ‘new world /old world’ cocktails which will bridge the gap between classic and contemporary dining. There are tea pairings amongst other non-alcoholic drinks pairings, using locally selected blends and intricate flavor compounds for a truly delectable and immersive liquid experience to accompany and compliment the food itself. The ingredients, libations, atmosphere and service all work together, hand in hand, to create Rikku’s ‘Immersion’ at London House, delivering a truly world class experience like no other. Immersion is exclusively served in ‘Restaurant Immersion’ at London House, every Tuesday-Saturday evening with a single seating time of 7pm. This 3-hour experience is limited to 22 guests per evening. Reservations can be made on the website, LondonHouse.Life, or on Open Table.

BRIDAL

WEDDING STYLE

Popping Champagne with a Pop of Color Color Palettes for 2022 Weddings

LET THEM EAT CAKE! The Mini Cake Although small wedding cakes are not a new concept, the mini cake has become quite trendy for 2022’s weddings. These individual mini cakes allow the guests to feel special with a personal experience while encouraging safety by not sharing. For the cakes, you’ll want to keep them simple with some tonal flowers. This will highlight the elegance of the concept with a sweet and minimalist look. You can also incorporate a theme into your mini cakes, further elevating the ceremony and experience.

While you are curating your wedding’s theme and aesthetic, the first step is to start with color. This year we are seeing a rise in bold, vibrant, and daring color schemes for décor and tablescapes. These pops of color will keep your guests enticed and keep your wedding looking fresh. Instead of picking just two to three hues, consider all the shades and tones of those hues. You can include neutrals organically and as needed, but don’t limit yourself. You can source your wedding day colors from anything that speaks to youfrom your home, to your favorite destination, to a print or fabric you love. Anything that inspires you will definitely help your wedding be that bold this spring needs. Primary tones are alive for this year’s weddings. Red, blue, and yellow are now fuchsia, robin’s egg, and lemon for these ceremonies. Pairing these primary colors with other reds, blushes, soft blues, and cremes will allow for a palette that employs fun and fierceness. These palette schemes

Unbox This

The Welcome Box

Now that weddings are being downsized to micro-weddings, couples are now working with their planners to design guest-centered welcome boxes. Similar to welcome bags, these boxes house safe event necessities for those that are attending the ceremony. For instance, many of these boxes have personalized hand sanitizers, programs, masks, and party favors. This functions as a cute new way to highlight the need for safety while allowing the guest to still experience the wedding ceremony.

allow you to be unrestricted and to incorporate some prints and textures that allow for design layers. Another color trend for this spring is skipping a color combination and exploring the variety of a single hue while working in all its shades, tones, and textures. With many ceremonies taking place outdoors, an entirely green palette feels spot on for a greenhouse, vineyard, or woodland setting. Utilizing this green scheme where natural textures and floral elements can be worked in will keep your wedding feeling fresh and organic. Furthermore, a popular spring palette for weddings are the everlasting pastels. This color scheme is versatile for those ceremonies on the beach or in your backyard. By incorporating shades of a buff to a collection of dreamy tones, the popular pastel palette remains chic and alive for your 2022 wedding celebration.

HEALTH

WELL N E SS I N

BLOOM By Maha Chaudhry

HEALTH

Alas, it’s June and summer has officially arrived. This calls for long days under the sun, and cozy nights under the stars - and while we are out and about enjoying the hot summer days, wellness should remain top of mind. After all, long days call for more energy-packed goodness! We have you covered with five healthy in-season foods you may want to add to your summer ritual.

1. STRAWBERRIES: Have you ever attended a strawberry festival? If you have, you’ve probably witnessed all the ways this sweet fruit can be incorporated in strawberry milkshakes, tarts, shortcakes and beyond. However, aside from the fact that strawberries make for some of our most nostalgic desserts, they are jam-packed with antioxidants that protect the heart and help reduce the risk of serious health conditions such as cancer, diabetes and stroke. 2. BLUEBERRIES: Another antioxidant-packed fruit is no other than the blueberry. This fruit contains a plant compound called anthocyanin which not only gives it the color blue, but also gives life to many of its benefits. Over time, blueberries have been booming in skincare products, as they are known to be great for skin health. In addition, they also help the heart and support bone health. Tip: Sprinkle on top of your favorite breakfast - they make for a great parfait! 3. TOMATOES: I’m sure you’ve heard that Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, but so are tomatoes! Not only are they rich in vitamin C, they contain potassium, folate, and vitamin K. And like most berries, they too, help prevent heart disease and cancer. Best part, you can use them in so many recipes. Whether it’s in your soup, on your sandwich, or as the sauce to your pasta, there’s really not much you can’t use them for. 4. BEETS: Not a fan of beets? Maybe it’s time to reconsider. Beets, also known as beetroot, are packed with goodness like vitamin B9, which is responsible for helping cells grow and function. They also help fight against inflammation. If you are planning to be active this summer, adding beetroot to your smoothie or juice is a great idea as beets increase blood flow to your muscles and are known to improve performance during exercise. 5. BELL PEPPERS: Just like the tomatoes on our list, bell peppers also contain an essential vitamin for the summer, as it helps protect against sun damage, if you guessed vitamin C, you’re absolutely right. According to Healthline, a single bell pepper can provide up to 169% of the recommended daily intake (RDI). Which means, you could replace your vitamin C supplement for a bell pepper if you wanted to. Otherwise, they make for a wonderful topping or ingredient. Aside from the vitamin C, bell peppers also contain vitamin K1 (for the bones), Vitamin A (great for anti-aging), vitamin E (for healthy nerves), and that’s just to name a few!

FIFTH ANNUAL

FASHION FOR WISHES

ORLANDO’S NIGHT OF FASHION, PHILANTHROPY & FUN ON JUNE 12TH

One of the city’s most fun and fashionable nights is right around the corner and anticipating its biggest and best event yet! If there’s one thing Orlando should be known for, there’s no doubt that it should be its sense of community. The community consistently and passionately unites as one to serve a greater good, and Fashion for Wishes is a perfect example of that unity. On June 12th, Fashion for Wishes will be celebrating its fourth annual fashion forward event benefiting Make-A-Wish Central & Northern Florida. This fun and fashionable night will bring over ten Central Florida based boutiques, models and local celebrity models as well as very special Make-A-Wish Kid Models all styled by Hair and Make-Up artists from Leal Marston and Trend Studios in Downtown Orlando.

By Dana Damato

Fashion for Wishes stands true to its name – promoting fashion to support local children facing a critical illness. The average wish costs $8,000, and the goal of Fashion for Wishes is to grant 3-4 wishes. Proceeds are made directly to Make-AWish Central and North Florida in an effort to

make the wishes and dreams of these children come true. Event organizer, JR Tanghal, is no stranger to bringing the community together to support local and national charities. Fashion for Wishes really embraces a local aspect. Those participating include local celebrities, boutiques, make-up artists and hair stylists. “We are passionate about bringing people together for a great cause with Make-AWish by putting the FUN in Fundraising and doing great things together,” says JR. Fashion for Wishes wouldn’t be a continuous success without not only the volunteers, but the members of our community who make it out to support the cause! The event will take place on June 12th at The Balcony Orlando from 8pm-11pm. Tickets start at $50 for general admission and $100 for VIP. All ticket purchases include open bar.

Actors Who Were

TRAUMATIZED By Roles

What happens when filming a demanding role takes its toll? By Riesa Pascal 58

| ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM


CELEBRITY SOUP

Have you ever felt traumatized by an intense movie scene or TV show clip? Have you ever fallen asleep after a horror movie and woken up in terror from nightmares? If watching this content as a viewer is enough to affect us, then one can only imagine how it must affect the actors who portray these demanding roles. It may be easy to forget sometimes, but it’s important for us to remember that celebrities are not puppets for our entertainment. They are living, breathing human beings and many have taken on incredibly difficult roles in the name of acting and suffered traumatic effects as a result.

Lady Gaga in House of Gucci For her role as Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci, Lady Gaga claims she stayed in character for nine whole months— sometimes not by choice. Her commitment to the portrayal led Gaga to draw inspiration from her own history of trauma which unfortunately led to the blurring of lines between her own experiences and the character’s. Things were so intense that even Director Ridley Scott was concerned that Gaga was "traumatizing herself." She replied defiantly saying, “I already have. I’ve already been through this anyway. I might as well give it to you." In what is likely the most telling sign of role trauma, Gaga said she had to have a psychiatric nurse on-set with her near the end of filming, saying that it was "safer" for her and that she "brought the darkness with me home because [Patrizia's] life was dark.” Leonardo DiCaprio in Shutter Island Another one of the many ways acting can take a toll on an actor is when having to portray horrific, but historically accurate, real-life situations. Leonardo DiCaprio has been acting since he was 5-years-old, yet he called the filming of the psychological thriller Shutter Island "one of the most intense, hardcore filming experiences I’ve ever had as we explored what the mentally ill had to face in the days when mental hospitals were called insane asylums…I went to places and unearthed some things that I didn’t think I was capable of. It was like an emotional layer cake that just kept getting deeper and deeper.” Zac Efron in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile It may seem shocking to imagine High School Musical star Zac Efron as a serial killer, but that’s exactly who he portrayed in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Efron spoke of his role playing Ted Bundy saying he had difficulty separating himself from the role once filming was over each day. In an interview with Daily Mail, Efron expanded on his struggles saying "It was almost impossible. I’d like to say that I did it successfully, but I couldn't."

Joaquin Phoenix in Joker In order to play the emaciated Arthur Fleck in the hit film Joker, Joaquin Phoenix had to lose 52 pounds. Phoenix spoke of the experience saying the concentration on his weight caused him to develop disordered thinking. He spoke candidly saying, "Once you reach the target weight, everything changes. Like, so much of what's difficult is waking up every day and being obsessed over like 0.3 pounds. Right? And you really develop, like, a disorder." He continued saying that losing that much weight affected his psychology and he started “to go mad." Sophie Turner in Game of Thrones Though the Game of Thrones novels were for young adults, the HBO adaptation was decidedly R-rated as it featured tons of nudity, sexual content, and graphic violence. Actress Sophie Turner was just 15 years old when she was cast as Sansa Stark in the hit show. Turner has spoken about the filming of intense scenes—including her character being assaulted—in interviews saying she developed coping mechanisms of having fun between takes so she wouldn't be traumatized. She went on to say, “I’m sure I’ll exhibit some symptoms of trauma down the road. At that age, I don’t think I could comprehend a lot of the scene matter.” Tom Hanks in Cast Away Sometimes it’s not so much about the trauma of a scene, but rather the isolation. Such was the case for Tom Hanks when he played a man stuck on a deserted island in Cast Away. In one of the most iconic movie moments in history, Hanks’ character gets so desperate for companionship that he names a volleyball "Wilson" and speaks to him. Hanks recently opened up about going crazy by the end of filming saying, "When Wilson was born, I had dialogue with him, and I heard his dialogue in my head. I did go crazy 'cause I never had a day off. I never had a shot off; I was never off camera for anything. It was...the whole movie was like, point and shoot. I don't even recall hearing 'Action' and 'Cut.'" Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther For Tom Hanks, his intense solitude during filming was not by choice. In contrast, Michael B. Jordan intentionally isolated himself to play the villain Killmonger in Black Panther. His reasoning was for role preparation, but the plan significantly backfired on him when filming wrapped. Jordan spoke of finding it hard to go back to his normal life and readjust to "people caring about me, getting that love that I shut out." He went on to say, "I shut out love, I didn't want love. I wanted to be in this lonely place as long as I could." Fortunately this story has a happy ending and Jordan decided to go to therapy which he said helped immensely as "Everyone needs to unpack and talk.”

Bentley goes BIG on ULTRA-LUXURY with Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Part spa, part boardroom on wheels, the Bentley Bentayga EWB stretches some truly luxurious automotive muscle There’s a gulf between the image of the conventional stretched limousine and the futuristic image of the expanded ‘living room on wheels’-style electric car that is promised to be just around the corner. Yet both archetypes do pretty much the same thing: prioritise passenger space. Bentley’s latest model, the Bentayga EWB (Extended Wheelbase) is the latest in a long tradition of extended cars from the company, typically manufactured for dignitaries and industry titans who feel that conventional scale is somewhat lacking. Adding 180mm to the standard model, the Bentayga EWB is a sort of replacement for the Mulsanne, the company’s former flagship that ended production in 2020. It’s a very different beast, being an SUV first and foremost, whereas the Bentley Mulsanne was a traditional grand saloon of the type that is fast fading from our roads. And while the Mulsanne was made in relatively low numbers – just 7,300 hand-built examples over a ten-year lifespan – the Bentayga is currently Bentley’s big seller, with around 20,000 sold within four years of the car’s debut in 2016. What’s more, Bentley expects this new variant to account for 45 per cent of all new Bentayga orders, emphasising just how much certain customers expect to be driven around, rather than drive themselves. For that is the main point of the EWB. As you’d expect, all that extra space goes into the rear compartment, which is now filled with two grand ‘Airline Seat Specification’ thrones, with all the reclining and massaging and cosseting you can get. In addition, the seats include something Bentley is calling its ‘advanced postural adjustment system’, which ‘subtly and continuously changes the shape of the seat around the body, preventing dead spots and fatigue build up’. In other words, the seat wriggles for you so you don’t ever get uncomfortable.

The full spectrum of rear entertainment is also included, with twin rear screens, fold-down picnic tables and the detachable ‘Touch Screen Remote’ in the centre console. Optional configurations include four-and five-seat ‘Comfort’ specs, which do away with the ability to recline the seats by 40 degrees, but allow you to fold the rear row to maximise the boot space – there’s no seven-seat option for the EWB, as there is with the standard Bentayga. Dip into Bentley’s Mulliner option book for limitless other ways of enhancing the space. Other innovations include self-closing doors (the first time on a Bentley – they’re more usually found on Rolls-Royces) and the introduction of Bentley’s ‘diamond illumination’, a form of leather finish that incorporates background lighting through the trim patterns. The soft, pillowy feel of the leather seats is even more refined thanks to advances in production, and the company claims there are 24 billion different trim combinations, hopefully reducing the chance of seeing an identical model to your own. Traditionally, China has been the number one buyer of longer cars as the cultural cachet of being driven has endured amongst luxury car buyers. Typically, most premium manufacturers still build special lengthened versions for the Chinese market. To date, however, that extra stretch has been reserved almost exclusively for saloon cars, while the Bentayga EWB is very much a traditional SUV, even if that rear compartment is now part spa, part boardroom. Yet with design possibilities being opened up by the next wave of high-end EVs, there’s an even more radical future for interior luxury on the horizon.

DINING ‘N STYLE

IMMERSION AT

LONDON HOUSE By Cathleen K Bode

Immersion is on a different level of fine dining, it’s quite extraordinaire. Chef Rikku O’Donnchu, aka The Viking Chef hailing from England brings drama and flair to his artistic creations in which Orlando has yet to experience. Truly a sensory experience that boggles the mind. We were led into a dimly lit, smoked filled room, was presented with a cigar and as we sat at our table there was a small glass dome representing an ashtray with black ash in it. The aroma wasn’t offensive, as some cigars may present, quite to the contrary, to me it smelled like marshmallows roasting on an open fire. As I elegantly tried to puff on my cigar, I realized only then that it was an exquisitely rolled bread and the “ash” was a heavenly mix of smoky, black butter. Our host for this evening, certified mixologist and sommelier Katie Zamulinsky, graciously paired all of our courses with fine Champagne, beautiful wines, port, and bold cocktails, which seamlessly flowed with each course. I recommend that you have your private driver or Lyft to drive you and take you back to your abode when the evening concludes. This is not your average fine dining experience, be prepared to indulge as Chef Rikku and his

incredible team present each course (15 to be exact on this evening), with precision as we waited doe-eyed, eager with anticipation of what’s to come next — The Book of Truffles. WOW an amazing truffle infused chocolate covered delights waited inside the box and Katie came to shower our delights with even more generous shavings of black truffles… When was the last time you’ve been showered with black truffles? Some extraordinary items on the menu that evening: Barnacle, Shell on Earth, Mosaic, Golden Egg, Winged Pharaoh, Blue Pill or Red Pill … this experience will ‘Levitate’ you to a level of Fine Dining like you’ve never experienced before. I highly recommend this experience for very special occasions, e.g., an engagement, anniversary, milestone birthdays, or, a sexy night out with your significant other. Chef Rikku will definitely leave an impression on your senses, but also, with thought provoking importance of low carbon footprint through his signature dishes ‘Levitate’ and ‘Amber’… Find out for yourself what true immersion is all about. London House Is Now Open To The Public!
