Adriana Cavita first solo project in the UK, a traditional Mexican restaurant named Cavita in the heart of Marylebone Village. Built around the knowledge acquired from her travels, Cavita encompass food traditions from all over Mexico, from the capital, where Adriana was born, across to Oaxaca and the Yucatan. The 70-cover restaurant has an open fire kitchen at its core, with reclaimed granite tables for couples and smaller groups, as well as communal dining available at the chef's table. Downstairs sits the hidden mezcaleria, Mayahuel serves as a cocktail and mezcal bar in its own right.
Adriana’s food harks back to the most simple open fire cooking methods employed by generations of cooks before her in Mexico, learnt next to her grandmother who sold Antojitos from a roadside stall in Ixtapaluca. In the restaurant, ‘street food’ features heavily; a range of Tacos including baja fish and cochinita pibil sit alongside lesser known items such as Tetelas - triangular shapes corn masa filled with blue corn and roasted pink fir potato - smoked fresh corn, that she loves.
Larger plates are based around a selection of moles - from the word mōlli in Nahuatl meaning sauce - integral to Mexican cookery and made differently all over the country.
A travel through her beloved Mexico.
