From Cecconi’s Terrazza in Rome to LA’s Mandolin Taverna and Little Beach House Barcelona’s new neighbour, La Caseta – a round-up of our favourite House restaurants for dining alfresco

Ah, summer. Specifically, eating outside in summer. It has to be one of the great pleasures of the season. Whether you’re feet up beneath the lemon trees on our rooftop terrazza in Rome, glass of Gavi Di Gavi in hand, or enjoying the Greek Island vibe of our walled garden at Soho Warehouse in LA – everything tastes that little bit better alfresco.

To make the sweet life, even sweeter for you, we’ve scoured our Houses to bring you our pick of the best outside dining spots, from Europe to the USA. Santé!


Mandolin Taverna at Soho Warehouse

What to order: a Greek meze sampler of tzatziki, olives, tirokafteri, grilled octopus and köfte, all served alongside warm house-made bread

Mandolin Taverna is the best way to channel the Greek Isles short of jetting to the Mediterranean itself: it really does feels like you’re dining among the olive trees in one of Greece’s many seaside towns. The LA-outpost of the famed Miami eatery of the same name – founded by husband-and-wife duo Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis in 2009 – has all the authentic charm of the original, set in an intimate garden oasis surrounded by greenery and string lights.

Cecconi's Terrazza at Soho House Rome

What to order: the lobster spaghetti

When in Rome, do as the Romans do – namely by eating loads of tagliatelle at our brand-new members-only restaurant, Cecconi’s, situated on the rooftop of our new House in San Lorenzo. Soak up the sun or settle in under the shade of the lemon orchard (yes, really) and get ready to make a meal of some of the best pasta – and wine – in town. We recommend going for lunch – and staying until dinner. With killer views over the city, there’s no better place for a sundowner. It opened to members last week, so get booking.

La Caseta, next door to Little Beach House Barcelona

What to order: exquisitely fresh seafood and fish (there’s lots of vegan and vegetarian options, too)

Our newly-opened beach hangout, La Caseta, is just two sandy steps away from Little Beach House Barcelona. The design is inspired by the famous Casetes of Garraf – a run of 33 carefully preserved white and green beach houses built in the 1920s, which are celebrated as a unique part of Garraf’s cultural heritage today.

With seasonal menus firmly rooted in the Mediterranean diet and produce sourced from surrounding farms, La Caseta offers on point all-day dining matched by equally impressive sea views. The perfect setting, in other words, to sit and watch day turn to evening, grazing on tapas with a glass of chilled white wine in your hand.

Rooftop at DUMBO House, New York

What to order: Dirty Burger with cheddar, mustard, iceberg, tomato and fries

To say the rooftop at DUMBO House is nice is like saying Kate Moss is a bit pretty. It is an absolute showstopper, with panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and a close-up of Brooklyn Bridge. We recommend taking in the vista from the comfort of the pool before settling down to the serious business of Picantes and ordering dinner. The restaurant specialises in meat and fish cooked over cherry and apple wood embers and features all your Soho House favourites, including our toothsome BLT.

La Santa at Soho Beach House Miami

What to order: tacos, quesadillas and churros

Chef Omar Montero’s La Santa Taquería was inspired by his desire to bring Miami inhabitants the true flavours of Mexico. What began as a series of pop-ups at Midtown Garden Center, quickly gathered pace – and fans – as Montero began to serve at different shows and music festivals around Miami. It wasn’t long before La Santa found a permanent home at The Wharf Miami, where it’s located today.

La Santa Taquería is currently partnering with Miami rooftop restaurant Ocho for a three-month residency at Soho Beach House Miami. The space also features fun weekly events – such as margarita workshops, and Sip and Paint sessions. You know you want to…
