New restaurant pop-up by ex-Noma chef to debut on Everest


Apparently you have to go to the mountains to get a good meal these days.

James Sharman, an ex-Noma chef, will debut a pop up restaurant in December, and it’s in a rather odd location: Everest base camp. According to Fine Dining Lovers, a foodie blog,  it is part of a plan to open 20 pop up restaurants in 20 countries, over 20 months.

This is the latest remote destination for the chef’s One Star House Party, a traveling group of food and drink pros who eat grub all over the world. The team — which originally started as an Airbnb popup — will hike to base camp prior to the event and use their “carpentry skills to carve a restaurant out of the materials they find in each city.”

Reservations are now available for the 14-day trip that will start in Kathmandu on December 10th. For $1,050 each (not including flights to Nepal) 15 intrepid guests will be provided with hotel accommodations in Katmandu and a room each night of the journey in the One Star Party guest houses. Also included are all park passes, guides, one porter between two people for the trek, and even down jackets for the evening.

Travelers are reminded to bring their own water purification tablets or sterilizer. How appetizing!
