Private Dining at The Dorchester

Chef's Table 

Nestled in the heart of The Dorchester’s famous kitchens, executive chef Henry Brosi’s Chef’s Table, provides a hidden enclave for private parties offering 12 front row seats to the theatre of one of the most highly regarded culinary operations in London.  A liquid crystal glass wall can be changed from frosted to clear at the flick of a switch.   

This stylish private dining room seats up to 12 guests on deep-red leather chairs arranged around a specially commissioned glass table, a generous size conducive to a vibrant atmosphere while remaining small enough to be tucked away behind the scenes ‘back of house’.

The chef’s table pays homage to the heritage, elegance and subtlety that are a common thread of The Dorchester's ethos. The menus are personally prepared by executive chef Henry Brosi, who is on hand to discuss the philosophy and preparation of the meal.

Whether it be a three-course lunch or a ten-course tasting menu, chef Henry will select wines to match and introduce each menu with multisensory theatre such as demonstrating the effect smell has on taste.

In addition to private dining, Henry Brosi offers a calendar of culinary masterclasses at chef’s table at The Dorchester.
