YOPO, the restaurant at Fitzrovia boutique hotel The Mandrake, is introducing a new menu that celebrates South American cuisine, inspired by the travels of head chef George Scott-Toft.

Following his journey through Argentina, Chile and Peru, the menu includes indigenous Amazonian ingredients, low-intervention Argentinian wines and traditional dishes, and the flavours of Buenos Aires, Santiago and Lima.

“We wanted to bring the best of South America to YOPO in London with the creation of the new dishes. We’ve kept the dishes light yet complex, with a specific focus on seafood and vegetables, using the finest produce from personal suppliers in order to deliver impeccable and creative offerings,” says Scott-Toft.

Guests are encouraged to start their experience at the restaurant with a selection of plates to share. These include empanadas of octopus, artichoke and olives and crudo of seabass, blood orange and mango.

Mains include grilled line caught squid, aubergine and aji pancha, and Welsh lamb loin with chorizo, onion and chard, and to finish there are traditional alfajores.

The new menu will be available from February 28.
