About Ora by Heinz Beck
This November, to celebrate his love of all things Italian Sir Rocco Forte and Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair will stage a festive ‘Italian takeover’ of the hotel’s restaurant and neighbouring Donovan Bar by two ‘masters of Italy’ - celebrated chef Heinz Beck and drinks maestro Salvatore Calabrese.
For this special six week takeover Heinz Beck of three Michelin starred ‘La Pergola’ in Rome will create Ora, an Italian inspired pop-up in the hotel’s restaurant and drinks legend Salvatore Calabrese will take residency in the Donovan bar celebrating the art of the aperitivo with a specially curated Martini and Negroni menu.
Heinz will make a return to London on November 13th serving a specially created Italian menu at Ora including signature dishes brought from La Pergola that exemplify his approach to Italian cooking that melds classic techniques with surprising but also comforting elements. Example dishes will include: Tagliolini with black salsifies, chives and white truffle from Alba and John Dory with curry, red beetroots on a light pesto sauce.
Regular visitors to Brown’s will notice the dining room has also been taken over by designer Ashley Hicks for the festive period.
