The Café at Hotel Café Royal is joining the Chocolate Week 2014 celebrations from Monday 13 to Sunday 17 October with a cocoa-centric menu available to enjoy within or take-away. A spectacle for the senses, the celebrated window displays will also be dressed creatively with a chocolate haze, with chocolate sculptures as the centrepiece. During Chocolate Week itself, The Café will be unveiling an exclusive new partnership.
Highlights from the light menu include Celtic Scallop Ceviche, with orange and cocoa nibs (£14); Carpaccio of Venison, chocolate marshmallows and parmesan (£14), and Cocoa Chipotle salsa and crispy fajitas (£10), each dish with a nod to chocolate.
For the sweet tooth, Executive Pastry Chef Andrew Blas and his team have turned their attention to chocolate and have created exclusive treats especially for Chocolate Week, including three new flavours of macaroons Chocolate and Orange, Milky Bar and Baylands Bahibe, using Valrhona’s intense sweet chocolate (£2 per piece). A new Café signature Circle Lait chocotate torte (£8), Mint and Chocolate Chip shortbread (£3),Chocolate Chiffon Sponge (£5), ‘Cazzella Opera 1865’ (£5) and Terracotta Union Cake (£6) will also be available exclusively throughout the week alongside the espresso bar with counters lined with delectable chocolates from the chocolatier, and signature pastries and artisan cakes.
The Café will also be serving bespoke “choc-tails”, Pearfect and Gold Whisper, (£13 each) designed by the hotel’s creative mixology team, for chocolate fans to complete the experience.
Celebrating the European tradition of café culture, The Café is a beautiful and impressive space located on vibrant Regent Street. The Café is open daily from 8am to 10pm.
