CitySuites’ vibrant brasserie and bar, Embankment Kitchen, reveals its Festive menu and opens Christmas bookings across November and December.

The perfect destination to get you into the festive spirit, dine with friends, family or colleagues.

Curated by Head Chef, Marika Healey, using the freshest ingredients from carefully selected
local suppliers, the Festive set menu features a collection of traditional festive dishes with a
twist in addition to options for the non-traditionalist diner. Indulge in three-courses for £35
per person, with the option to add on a glass of Champagne on arrival for an additional £8.

A special Christmas cocktail menu will also be on hand, including a winter warming Apple
Cider Hot Toddy.

Combining traditional glamour with contemporary twists to create a modern, cosy and
inviting atmosphere, Embankment Kitchen caters for private and corporate events. Their
private dining offers an intimate setting for up to 12 guests, and the whole restaurant -seating up to 77 guests – is available for private hires from lunch to dinner Sunday –

For mains, tuck into a classic Christmas dinner in its finest form with all the trimmings –

And as it wouldn’t be Christmas if you’re not completely stuffed, finish off with Christmas
pudding with brandy sauce or for something a bit fruitier – red wine and vanilla poached pear with chocolate sauce, Chantilly cream or a zingy lemon tart, raspberry coulis and macerated raspberries. For chocolate lovers, give the chocolate and clementine torte a try, served with vanilla ice cream, hazelnut crumb or lemon sorbet, fruit compote, vanilla and red wine poached pear for something light and refreshing.
