Square Meal Review of The Magazine ?

Occupying a futuristic new building appended to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Magazine is bidding to become Hyde Park’s first destination restaurant – and judging by the packed tables, slick service and displays of culinary prowess when we looked in, it has hit the ground running. Chef Oliver Zange (aka Ollysan) is a self-confessed Japanophile, and dishes contain his signature mix of oriental and occidental flavours. Our platter of sushi was excellent, particularly a salmon, avocado, cream cheese and teriyaki ‘volcano roll’, while robata lamb tartare deserves plaudits for both bravery and execution. To follow, Black Angus beef fillet with sweet potato, Swiss chard and edamame might sit alongside seasonal European ideas such as venison with chocolate sauce. Magazine’s gleaming white interiors suggest an ultramodern marquee, complete with an undulating roof and clear glass walls overlooking a landscaped garden.

But as you can see from the image above, how could you not be interested in visiting whether you like the architecture or the food...

  2. 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...
