Decorated chef proprietor Simon Hulstone of Michelin Star restaurant The Elephant in Torquay, has partnered with Bateaux London for two unique culinary evenings on board the Harmony on Thursday 10th and Friday 25th October 2013.
For the first time ever, guests can enjoy a menu of Michelin star quality whilst cruising past some of London’s most famous landmarks and enjoying spectacular views of the river by night. Simon has created and will serve on board a sumptuous menu inspired by his passion for local and sustainable produce. Complimented by musical entertainment provided by the highly acclaimed jazz singer Shane Hampsheir.
