LET'S COURT

Great Court Restaurant at The Great British Museum

3rd Apr 2014

We often wonder if there are better things in life than good food, culture and architecture. When combined, the effect is simply magical. This has been beautifully delivered by one of London's landmark museum dining rooms with the opening of the Great Court Restaurant at the British Museum. The redesigned restaurant enjoys a fabulous new look in a uniquely stunning setting on its mezzanine floor above the world-famous Reading Room and directly beneath the curved steel and glass roof of the Norman Foster-designed Great Court.

The food is delectable and irresistible at the same time with European-inspired dishes including Grilled aubergine salad, pomegranate, tahini yoghurt, Capezzana olive oil or Soused mackerel, green olives, celery, raisin salsa. With the food so good, the drink of course had to be as enticing with New and Old World wines and a good selection of bubbles. A traditional afternoon tea menu offers guests a selection of delicate finger sandwiches and homemade cakes and pastries, accompanied by a selection of loose leaf teas – the perfect place to take any culture-vulture parents or relatives.

The British Museum’s major exhibitions will be a rich source of culinary inspiration for special menus to run alongside the à la carte throughout the year, notably Scandinavian influences for the ‘Vikings: Life and Legend’ exhibition (March to June 2014).

Great Court Restaurant is the latest venture from the award-winning Benugo family of restaurants.
