‘Sick’ death row restaurant suspended

17th September, 2014 by Lauren Eads

A death row themed pop-up restaurant event has been suspended after its organisers were met with a barrage of complaints.

The event had been due to take place in Hoxton Square, east London, with “inmates” charged £50 and promised a five-course feast with “culinary twists on some of death rows most interesting and popular last dinners”.

Its website featured mugshots of real death row inmates with menus around their neck prompting something of a backlash with many complaining on social media that the stunt was at best in bad taste and at worst malicious.

  1. Everyone has discussed what they’d have for their last meal, at dinner parties? Maybe, but I doubt very few of us have made the twisted leap from that to death row inmates’ meals, with a desire to reproduce that environment. Primitive business idea.

    What a great idea this was and a shame that people have no sense of humour, black humour maybe. Some people really need to get a sense of perspective, this was a restaurant showing last meals not how they died.
