This is just a taster of what’s to come this season, so look out for the full menu and book your table!
Our seasonal menus are lovingly created by our team of brilliant chefs. With our Executive Head Chef Jason in New York, (seeking inspiration for future new dishes) we asked Senior Sous Chef Struan, to give us the lowdown on what goes into creating a new menu. Here is what he had to say.
Hi, Struan! We know a lot of thought goes behind creating a new menu- what was the thought process behind this one?
“The thought process is, as always, to create a menu that strongly pulls on our influences as chefs, from our travels and careers, to bring together eclectic world influences with classic techniques.”
As you know, Alexander’s loves local suppliers. How do you source the produce for a new menu?
“We use the best British and local produce and match them with the best and most complimentary ingredients from wherever that may be around the world. Within this we try to be seasonal and use what is best from nature and at its peak for the time of year.”
Why do you enjoy creating menus for Alexander’s?
“The story of Alexander’s and the varied cuisine we showcase allows us to be liberal with our influences and our take on dishes, without being tied to a certain cuisine or restricted by a strict style.”
In theme with the season, we also have a range of refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to suit, from our nourishing smoothies and invigorating green teas to our zesty gins and sweet cocktails. Enjoy with added sunshine in our Secret Garden and Terrace!
