Square Meal Review of The Magazine ?

Hugging the side of Hyde Park’s Sackler Gallery, this futuristic spot gets its name from the building’s past life as a gunpowder store. The dramatic swoops of architect Zaha Hadid’s bold design are reason enough to visit, with swathes of smooth white surfaces cultivating a tranquil atmosphere (not easy given the steady procession of tourists). Under the eye of German-born chef Emmanuel Eger, the menu has swapped sushi for refined European flavours such as stone bass, cauliflower and samphire, or Black Angus fillet with piquillo pepper salsa. Each dish is aesthetically pleasing (naturally). Our maple syrup, squash and Stilton soup was a lesson in full-bodied, satisfying flavours, though a meek-tasting salmon tartare with Granny Smith apple and radish suggested a kitchen still building its confidence. So, the food has room for improvement, but a good-value brunch menu and vibrant, refreshing cocktails make The Magazine worth the trek across Hyde Park.

  1. The brand new Sackler gallery which is a converted, derelict 18th century gunpowder store has just opened in Kensington Palace Gardens. And not only is it one amazing space showcasing some fantastic art, but it has a shiny new restaurant designed by architect Zaha Hadid, named the Magazine (which doesn't need explaining i hope). It looks like a spaceship has crash landed down the side of the gallery. When it comes to restaurants in london, The Magazine can rest assure it has a stunning restaurant, in a stunning setting which feels as though you've been transported 50 years into the future...
