Located within The Westin London City Hotel, Hithe + Seek, has an exclusive partnership this February, with wine expert and Dalston Wine Club Founder, Hannah Crosbie. 

To celebrate Valentine’s Day Head Chef, Fabio De Paolis, has collaborated with wine connoisseur Hannah Crosbie, to create a six-course wine-pairing menu that combines elegance and taste, and aphrodisiac-imbued dishes. 

Food being the modern-day love language, Hannah and Fabio have worked collaboratively to curate a menu that is the epitome of romance, with playful takes on the dish’s names such as “The Booty Call” and “The My-Type-on-Paper”.

Ingredients such as scallops and Chilli mango mousse with a dark chocolate sphere are sure to get hearts racing. Guests can expect meticulous attention to detail with contemporary dishes which have been created to complement the experience and surroundings flawlessly. 

Hithe + Seek provides the perfect intimate and immersive setting, with picturesque views overlooking River Thames. With Fabio de Paolis’ knowledge of ingredients, combined with Hannah Crosbie’s open-minded and exceptional taste in wine, the pair will host a ticketed supper club on Wednesday 7 February to celebrate the launch of the exclusive six-course menu.  

The six-course tasting menu is priced at £99 per person, which includes a cocktail, six plates with five matching wines and one dessert wine. The menu will run alongside Hithe + Seek’s usual menu from the 8 February – 2 March.  

Hannah Crosbie comments “It’s been such a joy to work with Hithe + Seek on this wine pairing menu. They’ve given me the green light to go ahead with some really exciting, alternative pairings, which I can’t wait to pour for guests at the launch”.  Menu highlights include:
