Isabel, one of the most sought-after dining destinations in Mayfair, is excited to announce its new Head Chef, new à la carte menu, and Sunday brunch.
These new offerings are set to welcome the arrival of Spring this March, providing diners with a taste of Mediterranean cuisine with a Latin twist, reminiscent of sun-drenched destinations.
Head Chef Patricia Lago Vigil is at the helm, bringing her Spanish heritage and passion for seasonal ingredients to the forefront. She has crafted a menu that features indulgent dishes that combine Latin American flavours with Mediterranean influences.
The new à la carte menu features a range of starters, including Lobster Salpicon with pico de gallo, avocado, and Isabel cocktail sauce. The Isabel salad, made with variegated kale, blood orange, croutons, and parmesan cheese, and Labneh with heirloom tomatoes are other options.
For mains, diners can expect vibrant dishes like Grilled octopus with avocado cream, gold kiwi vinaigrette, and smoked paprika, Secreto Iberico, and Fillet of wild sea bass picada served with a side of Humita (a native South American corn-based dish). The menu is designed to be shared or enjoyed as fully plated dishes, creating a convivial atmosphere that is characteristic of the Mediterranean region.
Isabel’s Sunday Brunch, available from 12 pm to 3.30 pm, is perfect for those looking to end their week on a high note.
The brunch offers a three-course meal for £55, including a brunch cocktail and live music by Casa, the in-house band that sets the tone for the glamorous and sunny ambience of Latin American and Mediterranean coasts.
Guests can choose from smoked salmon on brioche with passion fruit hollandaise and gherkins, Açai bowl with granola, Mushroom Quesadilla with Romesco sauce, or Bloody Mary Baked Beans with spicy chorizo, among other larger dishes.
To end the meal on a sweet note, there’s Pineapple Carpaccio with hibiscus and jalapeno or Blood Orange Tart with Marshmallows.
The skilled bar team at Isabel continues to reimagine classic cocktails, such as the Rosetta 75, a French 75 infused with berries and garnished with a rose petal and dehydrated lychee.
The Golden Negroni with Seventy-One Eau Nuit Gin, Cocchi Americano Vermouth Bianco, and Beesou, a bitter honey aperitif, is another standout option.
As the night falls, Isabel transforms into a late-night hotspot, with the resident DJ creating a buzzy atmosphere every night of the week.
The Dragon Room, located downstairs, is a hidden gem for those seeking a clandestine tipple, complete with a silk-walled, sultry lounge bar that comes alive after hours.
In conclusion, Isabel’s new à la carte menu and Sunday Brunch offer a delightful escape to Mediterranean cuisine with a Latin twist.
The restaurant’s talented Head Chef and bar team create a culinary journey that is sure to transport diners to sunnier climes. Isabel is located at 26 Albemarle St, London W1S 4HY, and the new menu is available from March.
