The Saatchi Gallery’s Mess holds no truck with ‘museum restaurant’ stereotypes or touristy clichés – although we think it’s more of a pit-stop than a destination. Inside, a long, swish bar leads down to two monochrome dining rooms with splashes of colour from artwork on the walls, while a “killer outdoor space” gives stunning views of manicured Duke of York Square. Yummy mummies congregate here for coffee, while art buffs take a culture break for a light lunch with a glass of wine. The menu delivers simple, honest flavours at fair prices: soused mackerel with kohlrabi and dill vinaigrette; Waldorf salad; BBQ pork belly with pumpkin purée, braised endive and cider jus; red pepper and goats’ cheese ravioli – plus steaks, burgers and desserts such as warm chocolate brownie with honeycomb and salted-caramel ice cream. Also worth a punt for afternoon tea and Sunday brunch.
It’s about time and it’s FINALLY happening – my new camera is on its way. Yes, I may have a snazzy looking and extra-large DSLR camera with a gigantic lens, but really it’s a little bit useless and so am I when using it. If the lights just right then the food will look fabulous, but if it’s not then it looks a little something like (I’ll leave that to your imagination). Actually the food here at Gallery Mess looked much better in real life than my photography shows – Angie Silverspoon however is turning into a bit of a pro and took some great snaps during our dinner.

When I first started blogging I found it a little intimidating to turn up to events; it was that fear of not knowing anyone and standing awkwardly on your own. But over the last year and a half of blogging and attending events, I’ve got to know lots of fellow bloggers and I know I’ll see familiar faces and events will be relaxed and fun. As was the case when I attended a dinner at Gallery Mess organised by the PR and Marketing team behind Duke of York Square, a food and fashion courtyard in Chelsea.
