The coming together of world renowned mixologist, Simon Caporale and the swanky Mayfair establishment, Quaglino’s is a match made in cocktail heaven!
On a bitterly cold January evening, I made my way along the streets of Mayfair to Quaglino’s. Adorned with shades of mink, pewter and gold, Quaglino’s is a European brasserie with stylish art deco vibes and equally glamorous clientele. I was there to witness the beautiful collaboration between the restaurant and Simone Caporale.
A glass of bubbly upon arrival helped warm up my otherwise frozen self.
It was my first time at the well established Quaglino’s and I was completely blown away by its size and grandeur. It could’ve easily been the setting of one of Jay Gatsby’s shindigs.
The first (of many) glass of champagne down, we began the masterclass with an extremely friendly and jovial, Simone Caporale.
Et voila! Two wine-based cocktails; one more sweet with a hint of chocolate while the other, sour and refreshing. All accompanied with some incredible nibbles; tuna tataki, cucumber and avocado on lotus crisps.
Coconut shrimp with lemon and chilli dressing.
And my favourite of the evening, truffle and parmesan arancini with watercress aoili. Rich and creamy with just the perfect hint of truffle.
A happy bunny with a belly full of good food and cocktails!
Quaglino’s effortlessly brings back the glamour and grandeur of the 1920’s. Grab a few friends and head down to this Mayfair joint for an evening of some fancy fun and laughter.
The closest tube station to Quaglino’s is Green Park and you can find out more information here.
I was invited as a guest of Quaglino’s.
