BWW Review: The McKittrick Hotel Presents AT THE ILLUSIONISTS TABLE-A Marvelous Magical Evening
The art of illusion meets the art of fine dining. The McKittrick Hotel, the home of Sleep No More, is now presenting the New York City premiere of At The Illusionist's Table, an all-new intimate magic and dining experience that comes straight from Scotland. This is a 12-week exclusive engagement. The show and dinner is held in the McKittrick Hotel's classic Scottish dining room, The Heath. Hosted by the charming master illusionist, Scott Silven, this fabulous, immersive experience will please magic enthusiasts and gourmands alike.
The venue for the dinner and show has an enticing and elegant ambiance. An expansive communal dining table is set with flickering candles and colored globe lights hang from the ceiling. As soon as Silven takes his place at the head of the table and introduces the show in eloquent prose, you know you're ready for an enchanting evening.
Silven includes all of the guests in his illusions by inviting them to participate in card tricks, predictions, and so much more. You immediately become totally engaged and fascinated by Silven's ability to present storytelling, magic and mentalism.
The three-course meal by the hotel's Executive Chef, Pascal Leseac'h and several whiskey pours will tantalize your taste buds and further stir your senses. Enjoy a first course of savory Seafood Risotto with sea bream, crab claws, mussels, shrimp and cockles. For the main, tender Roasted Chicken is served over a celery puree, with heirloom carrots, brussel sprout, crimini mushroom, lobster mushrooms and chicken jus. Parker rolls, roasted potatoes, roasted butternut squash, green beans and yellow wax beans are presented as table shares. Topping off the dinner is a luscious Chocolate Torte. The delicious elevated fare is beautifully presented and graciously served.
