The McKittrick Hotel's hit magic dining experience, Scott Silven's At The Illusionist's Table, begins additional performance dates at the hotel's Club Car September 14, extending through October 21.
Silven's intimate evening of illusion, a three-course meal (crafted by Executive Chef Pascal Le Seac’H), and a whiskey tasting was most recently hosted at the McKittrick Hotel's rooftop Alpine restaurant, The Hideout at Gallow Green. Playbill attended in April 2023 and shared the experience in this video.
Silven began developing the show in 2013. The show debuted at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and made its New York premiere in 2018 in The Club Car at The McKittrick Hotel. Sellout engagements have resulted in multiple returns to both the Fringe and the McKittrick in between runs of Silven’s larger stage show Wonders, which played the Sydney Opera House last year. At The Illusionist's Table's most recent stop was at The Kennedy Center in April.
“After completing my recent world tour and engagements at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, it is a great privilege to return once again to my home away from home at The McKittrick Hotel. I’m delighted for New York audiences to join me for an extraordinary evening this summer,” said Silven in a statement.
The new seasonal dinner menu featured for At The Illusionist's Table is crafted by Executive Chef Pascal Le Seac’H, a French chef who has been based in New York City for over 20 years, serving his star-quality cuisine at André Balazs at The Sunset Beach Resort and Keith McNally at Balthazar and Pastis.
Seating will be offered on Thursdays at 7:30 PM, and Fridays and Saturdays at 7 PM. For more information, visit here.
