Netflix Gets Trolled for Restaurant Which Will Serve ‘Bites’ from Favorite Shows | “Food Sharing Will Be Forbidden”
All Netflix viewers might have seen plenty of shows on the platform about fine dining or finding the most delicious street food. But this time, Netflix is not bringing us yet another show about mouthwatering cuisines from around the world. The streaming giant has come up with an idea to open a concept restaurant that promises to appeal to dedicated subscribers of the streaming platform.
As Netflix ventures into food chain business, they apparently promise to bring all the flavors seen on screen to life. According to News18, people in the U.S.A. can now take a real bite out of some delicacies rather than salivating at home while watching shows like Chef’s Table, School of Chocolate or The Chef in a Truck. Well, this isn’t the first time Netflix has come up with the idea of themed restaurants or pop-up stores.

The streaming platform has also created a pop-up shop in Tokyo where customers can take a romantic and immersive journey through the grandeur-stocked universes of shows like Bridgerton, Emily in Paris, Wednesday, Stranger Things and Alice in Borderland. They also serve food and beverages themed after some popular shows on Netflix. The latest pop-up restaurant from Netflix is not open to the public yet and it’s going to get inaugurated on June 30, 2023 in Los Angeles.

let me guess food sharing will be forbidden bcs you need to log in with your account to order your own food— 39Rini (@39RiniVT) June 13, 2023
The restaurant is apparently named Netflix Bites and it will serve up some delectable dishes which are featured on the shows of the streaming service. According to CNN, Michelin-starred chefs like Dominque Crenn and Curtis Stone are among the chefs participating in this pop-up restaurant idea. East-West fusion master Ming Tsai and baker Nadiya Hussain are also in the line-up to cook for the limited-time eatery. “Bringing my love of food to people across the world is one of the biggest thrills of my life but this screen-to-table experience of giving fans a taste of what happens on camera is just awesome,” Stone said in a statement, per the outlet.

Netizens had a good laugh about this pop-up idea on Twitter as many of them trolled Netflix for opening a restaurant while ignoring longstanding issues such as rising subscription prices, nonsensical cancelations of popular shows and the crackdown on password sharing. Too bad, the celebrity chefs won’t be on the site to meet and greet the customers but those wanting to taste what Netflix is going to serve can visit the location at Short Stories Hotel in West Hollywood. The pop-up will be open daily from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Also, a non-refundable deposit of $25 per person is required, which goes toward diners’ final bills.
