All-In KitchenThe game of Poker has escaped the confines of the usual brick & casino walls and will now find a place in a London restaurant. This first of its kind pay via poker restaurant is a result of a collaboration between Jones & Son and PokerStars. This innovative concept will run between 19th -21st of January and will promote the 2015 UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT). The restaurant is known as the All-In Kitchen and is located in Haggerston, east London.

During this pay via poker period, customers will have to pay £50 per head to have a meal that includes a cocktail.

They will be able to play poker at the restaurant and if they get lucky at the table, they will be eligible for a huge discount on their meal. The All-In Kitchen also has an offer where a lucky winner will be awarded a 3 course gourmet meal for free.

Customers of the All-In Kitchen will be able to select their choice of food from a menu that is very poker friendly and is being fully curated by Jones & Sons. Some of the offerings on the menu include Queen Scallops accompanied by salt-baked swede and bacon marmalade; Royal Flush of King Crab Thermidor; kidney and shoulder with rosemary jus and two-pair of pear tarte tatin; four-of-a-kind lamb chops, rump and for desert a pear caramel and ice cream.

Customers will have to pay only £10 for the entire meal feast if they reserve a seat at the felt and take part in three hands of poker. Customers who want to qualify for a free meal, will have to play 10,000 chips or more, customers who play between 5,000 and 10,000 chips will have to pay a £5 fee and customers with less than 5,000 chips will still be able to get a good deal which is the 3 course gourmet meal that is only £10.

In a statement, Andy Jones, Founder of Jones & Sons, said:

I love food and never shy away from the tables when I get the chance, so having the opportunity to create a menu that combines two of my favourite things was something I jumped at. Embracing Poker within the dishes was a lot of fun and some of the dishes that hit the cutting room floor were a bit out there, but I can’t wait to see the results and serve up some Aces.

Customers who are not interested in poker but would like to experience this unique environment can do so by paying the full price of £50 per head.
