Following the successful launch of its rooftop restaurant in April, The Dorchester has announced that chef Adriana Cavita will be taking the helm from 14-30 June.

Cavita is a Mexican-born chef with many 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 flavours of Mexico, transporting individuals to a realm of creative dining. 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. This is followed by a series of small plates made for sharing. The chef’s selection features a variety of tacos, including Baja fish, suckling pig and Calabacitas (smoked fresh corn).

Moving to the large plates, guests can opt for one of Cavita’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.

Finally, 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 a 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.
