It’s little more than two years since Richard Corrigan opened Corrigan’s Mayfair on the site once occupied by sainted restaurant, Nico Ladenis’ three-Michelin-starred Chez Nico at Ninety.
Since then, the Irish chef has bagged an impressive haul of accolades, culminating in last year’s coveted Menu of the Year Catey award.
The Cateys judging panel raved about Corrigan’s skilful menu balance, enthusiasm for local wild ingredients, attention to seasonality and sourcing, consistently flavour-charged dishes and individuality of food style.
Judge Jason Atherton commented, “Richard is the kind of chef who could go anywhere in the world and you would always be able to recognise his menu. His food displays individuality and a unique creativity – everything that’s great about modern cooking”.
In recognition of Corrigan’s Cateys success, Caterer has linked up with the chef to host a rare, private lunch on Monday, 14 March, allowing you to sample his award-winning food.
The event will begin at 12.15 with a drinks reception, followed by lunch at 12.45pm. After lunch, Corrigan will be on hand to chat to guests and those that wish to see the kitchen will be given a tour.
Corrigan has created a four-course menu including wines showcasing his culinary values.
