The Dorchester rooftop to host Adriana Cavita
Following the launch of its first rooftop restaurant in April 2021, The Dorchester is pleased to announce that Mexican chef Adriana Cavita will be taking the helm from 14-30 June.
Cavita's upcoming residency will focus on the traditional flavours of Mexico. Originally hailing from San Felipe Ixtacuixtla, Cavita is at home with the ingredient larder and unique flavour 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.
Cavita's selection of small plates features a deliciously fresh variety of tacos, including baja fish, suckling pig and calabacitas (smoked fresh corn).
Her larger, signature dishes include pollo al carbon, carne a las brasas or Puerto Nuevo lobster served with fresh herby green mole with tomatillo and roasted poblano rocket.
Desserts include 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 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 is open daily from 12pm to 11pm Monday to Saturday, and 12pm to 10.30pm on Sunday.
