In addition, the menu also has a cocktail pairing option, whereby each dish is served with a cocktail specifically designed for flavor matching, curated by resident mixologist Tural Hasanov.

It’s an intimate dining experience that’s completely new to The Ritz Bar, and for that matter, The Portman Ritz-Carlton. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with chef and mixologist.
