SquareMeal Review of
Portrait Restaurant at the National Portrait Gallery
This all-dayer at the top of the National Portrait Gallery wears its spectacular skyline view lightly, & it’s worth coming up just for the visual distractions. The main menu features
rustic-sounding dishes such as homemade black pudding with devilled sauce, & confit duck with cassoulet. A set menu is linked to major exhibitions – although you won’t find much under £25 on
the fairly interesting wine list. Plentiful, courteous staff also make it an ideal choice for afternoon tea with elderly friends or parents. The design is clean, modern & warm, but surprisingly
light on portraits – though you can lock eyes with Cary Grant & Joan Crawford.
