Summer may have eluded us this year, but sales of the new barbecue menu at The Deck have been hot, hot, hot! The latest food fashion for sizzling, outdoor flavours has seen The Deck take the art of barbecue catering to new heights, resulting in a sales increase over the ‘summer’ months of 115% on last year.
Situated above the National Theatre on London’s South Bank, The Deck offers four themed barbecue packages, each desigend to bring a taste of summer to any event. With a focus on great quality food, cooked simply but well, the menus have been a real hit with event organisers and a great antidote to the less then glorious summer of 2012!
Commenting on the growing popularity of The Deck’s barbecue menu, Kat Parker, head of sales and hospitality events says: “The combination of Argentinean, Caribbean, Moroccan and Texan flavours offered in our menus has enabled us to bring a bit of sunshine into our events whatever the weather.”
Simon Flint, executive chef at the National Theatre adds: “We’re delighted so many event organisers have requested The Deck’s barbecue menu. Barbecues are a massively growing trend within the restaurant market, fuelled by venues such as Jamie Oliver’s Barbecoa and it’s great to see trends like this becoming popular within the event’s industry. We have worked very hard on our barbecue menus to ensure we offer something different and exciting with bold flavours and vibrant colour playing a big part in our menus. Our barbecues are also a great way of adding theatre to an event – something the National Theatre does so well. Good food is such a central part to any event, and by putting one of our BBQ chefs centre stage you’re sure to get things fired up.”
Due to popular demand the Summer BBQ menu at The Deck will run until end of September come rain or shine!
