The menu will be priced from £85, with paired wines and cocktails at an additional cost of £50.

Aurelio, 32, is an alumni of Ferran Adrià’s El Bulli and has also worked alongside Paco Perez at Miramar, Spain. He has become known for his contemporary and sophisticated approach to cooking that highlights the quality yet simplicity of the ingredients. With his status as an upcoming star in molecular gastronomy, guests can be sure to expect a few spectacular surprises from Aurelio. RECETAS 1 Currently a head chef at the renowned Ramses restaurant in Madrid, Aurelio’s avant-garde and minimalist style of cooking has spread across five different spaces; Room Delicatessen, Laterraza, Petit, Champagne Bar and Suria – all of which have been designed by world-renowned designer Philippe Starck. Suria, which is Ramses’ gourmet restaurant and Morales’ main project, is also split into five unique dining spaces; Dior; Christine; Dom Perignon; Haima; and Black.
