HIX AT THE ALBEMARLE AT ROCCO FORTE’S BROWN’S HOTEL CELEBRATES BRITISH ART AND CUISINE
HIX Mayfair at Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel specialises in the finest quality British cooking, using only carefully sourced local seasonal ingredients. Executive Chef Marcus Verberne and Director of Food Mark Hix offer an outstanding menu featuring great British classics alongside many lighter fish and shellfish dishes.
Guests can choose from starters such as potted Morecambe Bay shrimps; Romney Marsh beets with Ragstone goat’s cheese and wild herbs; main courses include fried haddock in beer batter with chips and mushy peas and Dover sole, as well as unusual and traditional cuts of meat on the bone such as Aberdeenshire 28-day aged beef fillet or sirloin which have a remarkable depth of flavour and succulence. At lunch, the carving trolley also serves traditional roasts including hay-baked leg of Corwen lamb, roast Goosnargh corn-fed duck and roast rib of Hereford beef and Yorkshire pudding.
Marcus has worked alongside Mark Hix for the last 10 years, previously at Le Caprice, J Sheekey and The Ivy, before joining Rocco Forte's Brown's Hotel in February 2008. Marcus lives in Colchester and is passionate about supporting British suppliers and he and Mark have gone to great lengths to source some of the finest seasonal ingredients from all over the British Isles. Marcus enjoys foraging for wild food, with many of these ingredients appearing on his menus.
HIX at The Albemarle is open for breakfast, lunch, pre-theatre and dinner and offers a full à la carte menu, alongside a special set menu, which changes daily, of just £25 for 2 courses and £30 for 3 courses. Scott McCaig, formerly from Scotts restaurant, now welcomes all guests as the new restaurant manager.
To complement the menu, Brown’s Hotel’s sommelier has sourced a comprehensive list of over 400 wines, as well as a fine selection of aperitifs, spirits and liqueurs.
