It’s been 25 years since Jim Henson passed away, and The Dart Gallery (127A Portland Street) is honouring the man behind the Muppets with No Strings Attached, tribute exhibit. But together with pop-up restaurant, Picnic, The Dart is going above and beyond bringing the beloved characters to life via colourful and puppets—it’s hosting a culinary tribute to Henson’s creations. All hail theme menus!

This frigging fun five courser (served Saturday, May 23 at 7pm at the gallery, sans Swedish chef) includes dishes like the Ernie & Bert (a poached pear, stuffed with cendrilon cheese black tea, chili lacquered peach and duck confit), Da Chickie in Da Baskee (pressed chicken, Swedish meatballs, ping pong eggs) and Good Enough For Me (an insane stack o’ cookies) and invites you to BYOB.

Tickets are $65 and by reservation only, click here for more on that.
