The private dining at Pachamama East is located on the lower ground floor and reached by walking through the heart of the kitchen. The setting itself is a wonderfully soothing one, bathed in soft candle light and peppered with potted plants and herbs and trinkets. In each cosy little nook and cranny you’ll spot ingredients and spices and culinary curiosities from every corner of the globe. Stacks of wooden crates brimming with fragrant lemons, oranges and tomatoes give you the sense of being at one with the restaurant’s heartbeat, and chefs pop in and out through the doors clutching herbs, spices and oils as they go about in preparing a delicious feast for you. There is also a window in the ceiling that allows you to view the buzzing restaurant above.
The table itself, which seats fourteen people, is at once long, sturdy, rustic and curiously comfortable; beautifully yet never overly dressed and laden with candles and flowers.
