The team behind Gastronomy will be celebrating the success of their busy bar and restaurant with a big first birthday bash on Saturday 16th February.

Director and Head Chef Charles Ford will be firing out a full menu from the kitchen, with plenty of small plate specials centred around the restaurant’s ethos of ‘sociable eating’, lending itself well to the party vibe.

Resident mixologists Sean Phillips and Sarah Whitehouse will be stirring up a storm on the bar, with an array of birthday themed cocktails making a cameo appearance on the restaurant’s already impressive drinks list for the evening. The venue’s popular ‘Happy Hour’ of two cocktails for £10 will run all night.

After dinner service, DJ Jacob Wood will be getting the party started properly at 21:30 until midnight, blasting house remixes of well known hits, old and new.

It’s been a busy 12 months for the buzzing restaurant and bar that opened on Cowes High Street in February last year. The venue has achieved a sterling reputation, scoring 4.5 stars on Tripadvisor, 4.9 stars on Facebook and a 5 star Food Hygiene rating.

Specialising in globally influenced food that lends itself to sharing with friends, the restaurant is well suited to a multitude of diners – from big parties to couples wanting to share an intimate meal together.

The Gastronomy team has big plans for 2019. Building their brand further, they have plans to expand with a food truck and to develop an external catering business for weddings and corporate events.

Speaking of his restaurant’s success, Ford says:

“I am so proud of everything we’ve achieved over the last year. Our team is almost exactly the same as the team we opened with, and every staff member here is invested and passionate about our vision and goals. We are constantly striving to make our Island even more of a destination to benefit every business here. We hope everyone will swing by on the 16th to celebrate all our hard work.”
