Dish scoops preferred listing for London Eye Barracuda

Independent caterer Dish has been awarded preferred listing status onboard Merlin Entertainments’ newest venue, the London Eye Barracuda.
The rolling contract will see Dish cater for over 100 events per year and create a range of canapé, bowl, lunch and dinner menus exclusive to the venue.
“With the Christmas season nearing we look forward to putting our contemporary twist on classic dishes,” said Dish Director Nick James.
Rhubarb Food Design, previously sole caterers of the Barracuda, will provide services for Olympic events and continue to provide services across the Merlin Events London venues.
“The new choice of caterer reflects market demand,” General Manager of Merlin Events, Michael Aldridge, said. “Dish is known for producing contemporary food at reasonable prices which is exactly what our clients are asking us for.”
The EDF Energy London Eye, owned and operated by the Merlin Entertainments Group, purchased the London Eye Barracuda (formally known as the Silver Barracuda)vessel from Woods’ Silver Fleet in March 2011. The Barracuda was re-launched with an art deco interior featuring booth seat dining and a mirrored 1930s bar with an iron grille facade, tan leather sofas, chaise longues, a dance floor and retractable roof.
The cruiser can depart from either London Waterloo Pier or Canary Wharf Pier travelling along the Thames for events. The Barracuda can accommodate up to 230 reception-style or 140 seated for dinner and is available for private and corporate events.
