A culinary journey through three pop-up restaurants by Chef Ruben Briones inspired by his own culinary journeys.
From Summery Mediterranean flavours to seafood paired with Taittinger Champagne and hearty French dishes, COMO Metropolitan London will take hotel guests, Londoners and international visitors alike on a gastronomic trip around the world without setting foot off Mayfair.
A Taste of the Mediterranean – Until August 6 th
Kicking off the series, A Taste of the Mediterranean is COMO Metropolitan London’s first pop-up
concept, taking place at the 5-star property until August 6th . Its menu will feature dishes
inspired by the diverse European regions – from the strait of Gibraltar to the Golden Horn in Turkey.
Each course on the menu will be paired with Mediterranean-inspired cocktails and wines that complement each dish’s flavours. From the White Bean Masabacha Houmous with Crispy Egg, a kind of deconstructed hummus popular in Israel, to Greek-inspired Marinated Tuna Loin Gyros with Pita, Tzatziki and Pickled Salad and the Moroccan dish Lamb Shank with Prunes Tagine, Bulgur Tabboule.
A Taste of the Ocean – August 18th to November 19 th
A native of the Asturias, a Spanish region especially known for its incredible seafood, Chef Briones
has a passion for cooking fish, crustaceans and shellfish.
During the hotel’s second pop up, A Taste of the Ocean, the Chef will be preparing seafood in different fashions; guests can enjoy inraw Oysters with ‘Gazpachile’ Dressing, Daiquiri Apple and Coriander, taste the chef’s innovative Crispy Fried Calamari Bao-guette or opt for a lighter Cured Citrus Monkfish, Grapefruit and Roasted Vegetables Salad.
The seafood menu designed by Chef Briones is meant to be paired with glasses of Taittinger Champagne, from the house’s signature cuvée Brut Réserve Non Vintage to the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs.
A Taste of Le Bistro – November 24th to December 31 st
Designed to comfort guests during winter, the third culinary pop-up ‘A Taste of Le Bistro’ will be centred on classic French bistro dishes. Having learnt the ropes of the job under the supervision of legendary Chef Alain Senderens in Paris, Chef Ruben Briones is well versed in preparing French classics: guests can expect to feast on Alpine delicacies such as beef bourguignon, share boards of fragrant cheeses from France and, to end on a sweet note, enjoy a chocolate fondue.
Cocktail Mixology Masterclasses – Every Saturday
From May to the end of the year, COMO Metropolitan London will also offer guests the opportunity to join the hotel’s talented mixologists for exclusive cocktail-making masterclasses that will cover five different cocktails recipes. Designed for a maximum of four people (making it the perfect activity for a double date or a friends’ reunion) the class includes light bites, and it is scheduled every Saturday from 3.00pm to 4.00pm and from 4.30 to 5.30pm.
A Taste of COMO can be booked on Thursdays and Fridays (6.00pm to 10.30pm) and on Saturdays
(12.00pm to 2.30pm and 6.00pm to 10.30pm).
