The Whistler Restaurant at Tate Britain is set to reopen November 19th 2013 with a new menu which draws inspiration from the restaurant’s fabled history as ‘the most amusing room in Europe’.
The seasonal menu reflects traditional dishes prominent in each London borough since the early… 20th century and will incorporating unique ingredients such as nettles and woodcock. The restaurant is also home of the award winning Tate wine list compiled by Head Sommelier Hamish Anderson. The ethos of the Tate list remains very much as it did when the restaurant opened in 1927 - the list is about excellent value fine wines from all over the world.
The specially commissioned mural which surrounds the restaurant is titled The Expedition in Pursuit of Rare Meats and was finished by Rex Whistler in 1927Continued
