CELEBRATE THE END!!!
In celebration of our 7 week "Taste of Thrones" pop-up attraction coming to an end,
and in celebration of "the greatest show in television history" sadly coming to an end,
we wanted to do something extra special for our fellow GoT fans to go out with a bang!
Rather than our formal, family-style dinner experience,
we wanted our last culinary experience to be something more fun and playful!
An evening that encouraged guests to explore and experience all of our immersive settings and photo opportunities in conjunction with enjoying Michelin-Star, James Beard featured Chef Matthew Dolan’s culinary interpretation of the HBO television show phenomenon "Game of Thrones". We are calling this special night "GAME OVER" and it will be held on Sunday night, May 26th.
including a specially-added 2nd floor of theatrical medievalness for only this event!
Our guests will journey through 6 different culinary environments throughout the venue,
each representing cuisine from the following Westeros families:
(1) Stark, (2) Lannister, (3) Targaryen, (4) Bolton, (5) Greyjoy, (6) Tyrell
We decided to take our most popular photo opportunities (Iron Throne, 27’ dragon, ice & fire walls, "Not Today", etc.) and "enhance" them!
Just for this one night,
we are adding “costumed actor enhanced” scenes
for you to take pictures with
and make all of your GoT fan friends jealous with Mad Queen envy!
Take your photo with:
1) The Night King and battle him to the death!
2) Mad Queen Daenerys riding her dragon!
3) Queen Cersei sitting in her throne in walls of fire as King's Landing burns!
4) Tyrion Lannister as you drink & know things together!
5) Arya Stark and her "NOT TODAY" wall!
In the world of Game of Thrones, if you hesitate, you die!
So act now or fall on your sword of unrelenting regret! ⚔
Chef Matthew Dolan received his formal training at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York and credits his work alongside professionals who honored the craft - including many "salty old European chefs" that ran well organized and disciplined kitchens - as providing him with the fundamentals he needed to excel. From New Orleans, New York City, Nantucket Island, and Helsinki, Finland, he has strived to improve his technique while being exposed to a variety of restaurant environments. Dolan became part of the San Francisco dining scene with a successful run as executive chef at Garibaldi's on Presidio. At Twenty Five Lusk, Dolan realized his dream of building his own kitchen, where he continues to deliver inspired cuisine that demonstrates his passion and commitment to excellence. He is a member of the US State Department’s American Chef Corps, has been featured at the prestigious James Beard House on three occasions, earned a coveted Michelin Star, authored the fish cookbook “Simply Fish”, and continues to make numerous television and radio appearances here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Dolan is delighted to apply his culinary artistry towards a "Game of Thrones" inspired dinner!
ABOUT 25 LUSK
Located in the bourgeoning China Basin neighborhood of San Francisco's SOMA district, 25 Lusk is a modern restaurant and lounge featuring seasonally driven New American cuisine, a dynamic wine program, and expertly crafted cocktails. Award winning architect Cass Calder Smith won top honors for his multi-million dollar design that weaves a modern aesthetic through a historic brick and timber warehouse originally built in 1917 as a meatpacking and smokehouse facility. All of the original exposed brick and massive timbers are still in place, creating a warm and inviting ambiance while maintaining the building's classic, industrial aesthetic. Perhaps the most unique element of the 25 Lusk transformations is the open space from the main dining level to the lounge below. This design unifies the two-level space while still allowing each level to exist as a distinct venue. Our "Taste of Thrones" Pop-Up Bar & Dinner Series will be taking over 25 Lusk's one-of-a-kind basement level bar and lounge called the "Social".
