Continuing on the theme of innovative culinary experiences, and as part of 10th anniversary celebrations, Eat Art is taking place at the Saatchi Gallery on Duke of York Square on the evening of Wednesday 17th October. Hosted by four artists currently holding exhibitions in residence at Saatchi Gallery, this exclusive access evening will fuse London’s great passions of food and art. Starting with a private tour of the gallery exhibition of ‘Black Mirror’ – Art as Social Satire, guests will be treated to Rémy Martin cocktails as they peruse the current exhibitions, before enjoying an exclusive four-course dinner at Gallery Mess, the Saatchi Gallery’s restaurant.

Lastly, on Monday 8th October, world-renowned Australian Chef and restaurateur Bill Granger will be in situ at his restaurant Granger & Co. Chelsea on Pavilion Road, where diners will have the opportunity to sample the very best cuisine from the legend himself.  Known for his eclectic and simple cuisine, Bill Granger, has written 11 cookbooks, selling in excess of 1 million copies and has made 5 cookery series seen in over 30 countries. Bill’s style across the globe showcases his trademark sunny, healthy style of Med/Southeast Asian food and his latest launch of Granger & Co on Pavilion Road only further highlights the culinary excellence of this Chelsea location.

All of these exciting culinary activities pave the way for the hotly anticipated opening of the Duke of York Restaurant, located on the largely Grade II-listed Duke of York Square. Designed by NEX Architecture (following an international design competition which attracted over 150 entries), it will champion the best of modern design in harmony with its heritage and surroundings. The Restaurant will include a circular roof terrace, open to the public, and the UK’s first innovative glass façade which will lower into a single storey basement during fine weather, to allow for al fresco dining. It is set to become a new landmark for King’s Road and due to be finished autumn 2018. To celebrate the design credentials of the building, a model of the restaurant was chosen to feature in this year’s Royal Academy’s 250th Anniversary Summer Exhibition, curated by Grayson Perry.
