Krug’s krustacean pop-up on the South Bank

Fancy dinner in a box? We’re not talking take-out. The box in question is made of glass, positioned slap bang beside the Thames on the South Bank and serves only crab and Champagne. In the latest attention-grabbing pop-up to hit the capital, Krug will be pairing their Grand Cuvée Champagne with Norwegian king crab prepared by new Marylebone restaurant Beast. Tickets for the one-hour sittings include a glass of bubbly and either a crab claw or crab club sandwich. You’ll need to book ahead but you’ll definitely earn bonus points for the originality of your reservation. Choose your dining companion with care, though: shy and retiring types might prefer to pass – this romantic dinner à deux is going to look a lot like street theatre.

South Bank, SE1 9PX. Wed Sep 3 - Sun Sep 7. £40. Seafood fans may want to take a look at our list of the best seafood dishes in London.
