The bespoke menu has been created by Head Chef Danny MacGechan, who trained under Marco Pierre White and more recently headed up the team at renowned gastro-pub Paradise by Way of Kensal Green. MacGechan brings his distinctive, hearty-but-refined style to Brasa. His trademark approach to cooking shines through in the form of enticing dishes, featuring lovingly cooked produce with a rustic edge.
Literally meaning ‘live coal’, Brasa, which opened in November, has devised a delectable festive menu based around dishes cooked on an impressive Asador Grill, imported especially from the Basque Mountains area of Spain.
The restaurant’s food offering is distinctly British with emphasis on quality cuts of meat from organic UK farms, fish straight from the Dorset coast and fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced locally.
On offer for starters will be dishes such as Foie Gras & Smoked Eel Terrine or Artichoke Soup with Trompettes. There will be a selection of five main courses to choose from including Roast Turkey with Trimmings and Halibut with Gnocchi & Cockles or Roast Goose & Peaches. Finally, the desserts on offer will stay traditionally festive with a choice of either Christmas Pudding with Brandy Butter and Tipsy Trifle or Chocolate Yule Log.
Brasa’s dining room is also available for those preferring a more intimate Christmas gathering with friends or family. The private dining room has a warm and chic New York loft-style feel. Large windows cover an entire side of the dining room, flooding the spacious room with natural light. The décor of exposed brickwork and luxurious fabric-covered walls is perfectly paired with dark wooden floorboards, interspersed with plush carpeting. Backed by a well-stocked wine cabernet, the striking marble bar runs almost the length of the restaurant and the front is upholstered, softening the look of the restaurant.
Guests will be able to enjoy the finest cocktails, including a bespoke Christmas Eggnog cocktail, created specifically for this special occasion. A varied wine and Champagne list featuring wines sourced internationally will be available, including the house wine priced at £13.50 (Vina Pena, Castilla, Spain, red and white) through to more complex wines such as a Chardonnay, Santa Maria Vineyard, Byron Napa, USA and a Chateau La Pointe, Saint Emilion, Bordeaux.
The Brasa Christmas menu is perfect for those wanting a festive meal with a modern and gourmet take on the traditional Christmas roast dinner. Dinners will be able to enjoy the one-off menu for just £55.
