Following the successful launch of its first ever rooftop restaurant in April 2021, The Dorchester announces that Adriana Cavita will be taking the helm from June 14 to 30, 2021. Adriana is a Mexican born chef with years of experience at top restaurants in Mexico City and in Europe, including El Bulli and Pujol.
The upcoming rooftop residency will focus on the traditional flavors of Mexico, transporting individuals to a realm of creative dining. Originally hailing from San Felipe Ixtacuixtla, Adriana is at home with the ingredient larder and unique flavor combinations of the region. She is also very familiar with the kitchens of Peyotito in both London and Ibiza, where she previously worked alongside the Head Chef.
From her upcoming menu, guests are invited to start with dishes such as Citrus ceviche with sea bream and Crab tostada with candy beetroots and chipotle crema. Next up is the small plates, perfect for sharing. Adriana’s selection features a deliciously fresh variety of tacos, including Baja fish, Suckling pig and Calabacitas (smoked fresh corn). Moving to the large plates, guests can opt for one of Adriana’s signature dishes – Pollo al carbon, Carne a las brasas or Puerto Nuevo lobster served with fresh herby green mole with tomatillo and roasted poblano rocket. Finish things off on a sweet note with one of four desserts including Mexican chocolate cake, Traditional corn cake with dulce de leche or a selection of ice creams and sorbets. There will also be daily specials added to the menu throughout the residency to make the most of the beautifully seasonal summer bounty.
To complement the new menu, The Dorchester bartenders Lucia Montanelli and Matteo Torresin have created an exciting new list of Mexican inspired cocktails. This includes the Cavita Margarita, made with an agave blend (Tequila Blanco, Repo and Mezcal), lime juice, Merlet Trois Citrus and agave syrup.
The Dorchester Rooftop will be open throughout summer to make the most of the longer days and sunsets across Hyde Park. The restaurant will be open daily for lunch and dinner, where guests can relax with a cocktail or glass of Veuve Cliquot Champagne whilst listening to a live band or DJ in partnership with Molto Music. Tables will be available for up to six guests and in anticipation for the unpredictable British weather, terrace umbrellas, heaters and blankets are available.
The Dorchester Rooftop is open daily from 12pm to 11pm Monday to Saturday, and 12pm to 10:30pm on Sunday. Reservations only and with a minimum spend of £50 per person.
