La Mesa Escondida at the Cedar Court Harrogate

March 1, 2019

The wonderful bread board. I have never tasted such crunchy bread sticks, ever!

La Mesa Escondida is proof that something special can be found in quite unexpected places. It means The Hidden Table in Spanish and it’s the name of a restaurant in Ibiza – and, for two nights only, in Harrogate, at the Cedar Court Hotel.
Tonight, Friday 1st March, and tomorrow, or Saturday 2nd March, La Mesa Escondida is appearing as a pop-up restaurant at Cedar Court, which has a sister hotel, the Petunia Ibiza in Ibiza.
The restaurant team has come over to create and present its incredible Italian dishes and dining experience. Yes, Italian, not Spanish. I went along last night to a special VIP preview night with my friend Jenni and we had the tasting menu. The standout dish for me was the Black Tortelli with Seabass and Orange (Sorrento/Campania) (£15.50), which is squid ink black tortelli with a seabass and orange zest filling and the most amazing orange flavoured butter sauce. Delicious.

This was my favourite – Black Tortelli with Seabass and Orange.

I now simply have to go to Ibiza to find the original La Mesa Escondida. Here’s what its website says: “Open year-round, in our restaurant and secret garden, we serve traditional Italian recipes prepared with only the freshest ingredients, love and mastery. Our dishes & flavours will take you back to your grandma’s kitchen. At La Mesa Escondida we believe that food tastes better when you are happy & feel comfortable.

The tasting menu we had, with wines to match.

Amen to that. Take a look for yourself here: https://www.lamesaescondida.com/ Cedar Court is also running a competition to win Two Night Stay For Two at the Petunia Ibiza in Ibiza, Spain.
Anyway, this was a really interesting and tasty night, so I just wanted to do a quick blog to say, if you fancy trying something a bit different, book in and go. But you will have to be quick. As I say, it’s just tonight and tomorrow.
