Square Meal Review of Benugo Bar & Kitchen at BFI Southbank ?

The distinctive Benugo look comes into its own at this flagship venue housed within the British Film Institute (BFI), a funky space of sharp design & vibrant colour. The chilled-out lounge/restaurant near the entrance offers low-slung couches & cushions of carefully mismatched fabrics (a great perch during the day), while the kitchen deals in good-value set lunches as well as an extensive carte, both tooting the modern British horn: expect the likes of fresh pea & Cashel Blue risotto, smoked haddock with colcannon & poached egg, or rump of lamb with grilled leek & caper sauce, followed by gooseberry fool or lemon meringue pie. Elsewhere, there are steak sandwiches & ‘pints’ of mini sausage rolls for idle nibbling. A bopping venue for cinephiles & South Bank trendies alike.

    Empty Pocket Guide :: Benugo at the BFI

    I have always been a fan of this hidden gem of a bar and restaurant located at the BFI on the Southbank. The bar is perfect for all occasions from romantic dates and large group celebrations.

They are happy to reserve areas for you if you require...
