Well, yes, potentially, with M Canary Wharf’s Symphony Experience multi-sensory dining experience

Dinner and a show. There’s an old school date idea you don’t hear very often these days. And one that M Canary Wharf has, effectively, ripped up and rebuilt in very different fashion. This time dinner is, effectively, also the show.

The Symphony Experience combines experimental plates from executive chef Mike Reid and creative drinks from Head Sommelier Zack Charilaou, with state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen Audio Visual Theatre Technology and a specially curated soundtrack from DJ Woody Cook. “This menu brings together my two greatest loves – music and food,” explains Mike. “This menu will truly take you on a journey that you didn’t know you needed to go on.”

Available from February 2023, the six course Symphony Experience takes place in one of the restaurant’s private dining rooms, and starts with what they’re calling a “mind reset” of “Champagne served five ways”. While guests wear a blindfold. Dishes then promise to take you through the seasons with a dish made using extreme temperatures, to a cosy candlelit meal “by a crackling fire”, and a multi-sensory climatic rave-inspired plate. Drinks include a raspberry and port cocktail through to a smoked pinot noir and basil martini gimlet, while the soundtrack veers from The Doors to Sinatra, via various sound effects. And its all accompanied by video projections.

Available for groups of four or more (although couples will be allowed on Valentine’s Day), the M Canary Wharf Symphony Experience costs £295 per person. Bookings can be made now via – you guessed it – the restaurant website.
