Hotel Eden, a 5-star luxury hotel belonging to Dorchester Collection, has launched an Alpine pop up on the terrace of Il Giardino Ristorante in partnership with Veuve Clicquot, where guests can enjoy a high-altitude gourmet experience that brings the spirit of the Alps direct from Reims to the heart of Rome, mirroring the Maison’s first expedition to Italy in 1772.
Every day from 12pm to 10pm, until the end of March 2022, guests of Il Giardino’s outdoor terrace will be transported to the mountain peaks via two private Veuve Clicquot cabins, inspired by glamorous, vintage train carriages, which are available to book for up to four people. In addition to the cabins, several comfortable outdoor armchairs are available, complete with blankets, offering the perfect spot to sip a glass of Champagne while admiring the panoramic view over the city.
The food menu, accompanied by a selection of Cuvée Veuve Clicquot, has been created by the Hotel Eden’s executive chef, Fabio Ciervo, and features a number of traditional, hearty dishes with classic Alpine flavours. The culinary journey begins with Valdostana fondue with potatoes; followed by the first course, Canederli with spruce flavored consommé; and the main course, Wild boar stew, polenta taragna, mixed mushrooms and black truffle. The dining experience ends with a dessert of Annurca apple and aged rum strudel.
Together with this historic Champagne house that this year celebrates its 250th anniversary, through a permanent dialogue between past and present. Hotel Eden thus offers guests a cosy mountain corner in the city centre to unwind and enjoy the rest of the winter season.
