Leading Mexican chef Martha Ortiz is to open a restaurant at the InterContinental London Park Lane early next year.
The new outlet will be located at No 1 Park Lane and will operate alongside Theo Randall who has run his eponymous Italian restaurant at the five-AA-star, 447-bedroom hotel for 10 years.
Ortiz is the chef-patron of Dulce Patria, where she serves traditional Mexican flavours reinterpreted with a modern twist. The restaurant is located in Las Alcobas hotel in Mexico City.
In London she said that she intends to "deliver the beauty, vibrancy, and spirit of Mexico to London in a total experience of the senses".
The new restaurant, which will feature references to Mexican culture, will be created by interior design company David Collins Studio, which has worked at the Berkeley hotel and on the Wolseley restaurant.
Ortiz has also made her mark as a leading food writer of Mexican cookery, having written eight books, and frequently appears on television, including Top Chef México.
