Following on from the relaunch of May Fair Kitchen, the team at Edwardian Hotels London are back with their next restaurant: Monmouth Kitchen.
As the name suggests it’s opening on Monmouth Street. As the name doesn’t suggest it’s going to be a mix of Italian and Peruvian flavours and small plates. The 106-cover restaurant, which features a robata grill and open kitchen, will be serving up a selection of ceviche dishes including lobster ceviche and sea bass ceviche with avocado alongside signature dishes of smoked lamb cutlets with red anticucho and pan-fried salmon with Calabrian chilli salsa. For pudding, expect to find chocolate Caliente: warm Peruvian chocolate spring rolls served with passion fruit sauce and coconut sorbet and Pera Sencacion: white chocolate and vanilla yoghurt mousse with pistachio sponge, honey ice-cream and pear compote.
Of course you couldn’t have a Peruvian restaurant without Pisco so you’ll find the cocktail menu includes the Lima Collins: La Caravedo Pisco Quebranta, jasmine tea, syrup, lemon and soda; Batida which uses Abelha Cachaca and coconut milk with a mango touch and of course a Pisco sour.
Inspired by the casual nature of Seven Dials but still with a nod to the May Fair Kitchen, the design brings together smart, black and white marble tables with concrete floors and architectural brick screens with rough and smooth textures.
Part of the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Mercer Street hotel, the entire ground floor of the hotel has also been transformed with mid-century classic furniture and an atmosphere to relax the rest of the area.
But for now, what you need to know is that Monmouth Kitchen opens on Thursday just in time for a celebratory Pisco sour to mark the Bank Holiday weekend!
To celebrate the launch of Monmouth Kitchen, all diners for lunch and dinner during their exclusive preview week will receive 50% off food from 31stAugust until 6th September. Offer also available at May Fair Kitchen to celebrate the new opening but table must be booked in advance.
