Located in the arches of Flat Iron Square, Portuguese restaurant Bar Douro are delighted to announce The Chef Series in early 2019. Dedicated to bringing a slice of Portugal to London, Bar Douro has joined forces with 4 chefs from across Portugal to showcase their unique style and dishes in a 5-course menu, with an optional wine pairing from Bar Douro’s cellar.


Chefs set to grace Bar Douro’s kitchen over the coming months include Antonio Galapito, who worked for 8 years with Nuno Mendes at Viajante, Corner Room and Taberna do Mercado before returning to Lisbon last November to open his own restaurant, Prado. Galapito will be followed by João Cura from popular Porto restaurant Almeja, who has previously graced the Michelin starred kitchens of Moncínic, Cinc Sentitis and Dos Cielos in Barcelona.


Completing the line-up will be Vasco Coelho Santos, who previously worked in the Basque kitchens of Mugaritz (two Michelin stars) and Arzak (three stars), and is the culinary mastermind behind acclaimed Euskalduna Studio and Semea by Euskalduna in Porto; along with Manuel Maldonado, from Lisbon restaurants 100 Maneiras and Bistro 100 Maneiras, which was awarded No.1 Restaurant in the World in Monocle’s 2017 Guide.


Each chef will create a 5-course menu for one night only, designed to showcase their individual style and take on Portuguese cuisine. Tickets are priced at £55 per person, with an optional wine pairing from Bar Douro for an additional cost.
