The Dorchester Rooftop launches today, just days before the hotel’s 90th birthday. As well as sunset views across Hyde Park, the restaurant offers a series of culinary pop-ups created by The Dorchester’s chefs, to celebrate British, French and Mediterranean cuisine. Relaxed Parisian chic is the order of the day from Monday, April 26 to Sunday, May 9, courtesy of Jean-Philippe Blondet, the executive chef of the Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester restaurant. (Reservations only and with a minimum spend of £60 per person.)
Mario Perera, executive at the Dorchester says: “Eating out this year will feel like an experience we all cherish, following the year that we’ve had. I am proud to be the 9th executive chef in the hotel’s 9th decade and what better way to do this than to work with Tom Booton, head chef for The Grill, and Jean Philippe Blondet on The Dorchester Rooftop. We feel so grateful to be able to get access to this space with those stunning views across the London skyline and leafy Hyde Park.”
Tucked away under the Dorchester’s plane tree, The Spring Garden has two private garden globes which each seat up to five guests who can enjoy a special menu created by executive chef Mario Perera in partnership with Veuve Clicquot. A celebration of the best of British ingredients includes Scottish diver scallops ceviche, blue lobster and Wye Valley asparagus and The Dorchester coulibiac. A minimum spend of £450 per garden globe applies.
The Dorchester Terrace & Garden has just seven tables of two, serving an all new cocktail menu by The Bar at The Dorchester’s award winning team of alchemists led by cocktail legend Giuliano Morandin, who celebrates his 40th year at the hotel this year. The Italian themed offering includes truffle arancini and calamari frittura, paired with experimental cocktails including the Malt Fig Sour made using 10-year-old Glenmorangie shaken with lemon juice and fig liqueur. (Walk-in only.)
