He will be bringing his Argentinian talent to London for the very first time, rising to the helm of the eatery at 45 Park Lane between October 3-5 for three nights only with his six course-tasting menu. Included in the line-up of plates will be Mallman’s signature dishes: smashed crusty Andean potatos with smoked butter and caviar, corn Humita with basil, plancha avocado with salmon confit and slowly roasted rubia gallega rib-eye on the bone.

“This will be a perfect meal; it has two of my favourite ingredients, crusty potato and rib eye,” said Mallman. “I’ve cooked with my dear friend Wolfgang Puck in LA before, but for my first time in London I’m looking forward to sharing a kitchen with David McIntyre. He has the respect for product that is the essential starting point for making a great, beautiful steak and has the mastery of a simple way of grill cooking that is very difficult to achieve.”

David McIntyre, director of food & beverage and executive chef at CUT at 45 Park Lane, commented, “Mallmann is one of the biggest names in global cooking – it’s an incredible honour to be collaborating with him.”
