The British capital’s top cultural institutions have been cooking up innovative new restaurants. Here, five must-visit spots.
1. The Keeper’s House; Royal Academy of Arts
Previously closed to the public, the RA’s 19th-century townhouse is now home to a seasonal restaurant from Great British Menu judge Oliver Peyton, featuring interiors by Sir David Chipperfield (see Café Royal redo). We love the brick-walled garden bar, with its Australian tree ferns and rotating art commissions. keepershouse.org.uk
2. The Magazine; Serpentine Sackler Gallery
With dishes from the Berlin-born, Japan-trained chef Oliver “Ollysan” Lange (one favorite: sushi with quail egg and truffle) served in an undulating, glass-walled space designed by starchitect Zaha Hadid, the restaurant at the Serpentine’s new gallery was a shoo-in for our 2014 Go List. serpentinegalleries.org
