Award-winning culinary hub Carousel is well and truly solidifying the culinary credentials of Fitzrovia at their new home on Charlotte Street, kicking off the year with a characteristically eclectic roster of residencies. 

This will include collaborations with chef talent from Berlin, Paris and Barcelona, available in Carousel’s guest chef dining room (pictured above). These will run in tandem with Ollie Templeton’s first ever neighbourhood restaurant, located at the front of the site, and the launch of Goila Butter Chicken, next door at ‘no 23’, the team’s new twelve-seater launch pad for exciting new concepts from around the world.

JULIE CAUTE

DAME JANE, PARIS

Argentino Pablo Lagrange returns for a third spin on the Carousel. Now at the helm of LA TEXTIL, an impressive new culinary and craft beer laboratory in Barcelona’s Gothic quarter, Pablo uses the Josper grill to explore cold-smoking textures, ashes, aromas and colour. Mind blowing techniques honed in the kitchens of Noma, Relæ and Mugaritz.

 

Pablo’s creative dishes will include grilled corn and black sesame butter; bavette, grilled lettuce sauce and pickled stems; burnt leek and romesco; and brioche ice cream, candy ginger and beer for dessert.

 

ROMY GILL
