It’s a first in their 90 year history!

With April 12 approaching fast, it’s likely that many Londoners are frantically weighing up their options of where to go. As the hospitality industry reopens for outdoor dining, there’s a new contender in town that is sure to be a popular choice. [Featured Image: @thedorchester].

The Dorchester Hotel is adding another string to its bow, with their first ever rooftop dining experience. This will complete a trio of options you can enjoy there on April 12.

If their Spring Garden and their Dorchester Terrace and Garden wasn’t already enough for the alfresco diners, this rooftop experience, with stunning views over Hyde Park and central London, is certain to do the trick.

The Dorchester Rooftop already has an exciting plan for summer, featuring a series of restaurant pop-ups, led by executive chef Mario Perera, as well as live music.

A summertime menu from Tom Booton will also be available, featuring delightful offers such as ribeye with mushrooms and tarragon; barbecued leeks with ricotta and salsa verde; and prawn Scotch egg with curry sauce. That last one is giving us flashbacks the ‘substantial meal’ debate of last year *shudders*.

An informal French menu will also be on offer between April 26 and May 9, courtesy of Jean-Philippe Blondet. You’ll find some scrumptious small plates, including hummus, seaweed crisp and lemon confit; grilled octopus, confit pepper and grapefruit; and native lobster, spiced avocado and shiso leaves.

Minimum spend at the new rooftop is £60 and you can make a reservation here. It will be open between 12-11pm every day (shuts 10.30 on Sundays).

All three alfresco dining options at the five-red-AA-star hotel will open from April 12, with the hotel due to open up on May 17.
