Man Opens Salad Bar in a London Phone Booth
The latest buzzy, slightly absurd, pop-up restaurant is (rather inevitably) inside an iconic Londontown phone booth. Posing with a classic red phone booth is a must on your to-do list when visiting the city, which is exactlky why a businessman has decided to transform one into a (very) mini restaurant.
Ben Spier created Spier’s Salads, a pop-up salad bar, by converting a phone booth into a larger refrigerator where he serves five different types of salads made with organic, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients two days a week. He pays Red Kiosk Company just $29 a month to rent the space in Bloomsbury Square.
While these phone booths were commonplace for a long period of time, they’ve slowly been phased out over the years with the invention of cell phones. Only 48,000 remain in the city today.
