Senate Room

OPENED 13 DAYS AGO

A new dining destination, Senate Room, opens inside the Royal Academy of Arts.

Celebrating their 250th anniversary, The Royal Academy has restored the Senate Room into a modern dining space with a Michelin-worthy menu to match.

The Spot:

Despite its prestigious setting in one of London’s most legendary buildings, Senate Room aims to be an approachable destination for all. So, don’t be intimated by that super-sized, grand-looking bar, dominating the contemporary space with warm touches of pinks and greens, or the fact that chef Stephen Beadle (of Michelin-starred River Café) is helming the kitchen. Very approachable, indeed.

The Food:

Promising comforting yet uncomplicated Italian cuisine, the menu includes squash and ricotta pansotti pasta (sprinkled with Parmesan and crispy sage), wild boar and Parmigiano Reggiano (with truffled honey, of course), and crostinis decked with chicken liver. For your sweet tooth cravings, baking queen Melissa Forti gives afternoon tea an Italian twist, offering cutting-edge creations such as zabaglione (custard spiked with Marsala wine) and an orange-Grand Marnier chiffon cake.

The Drinks:

Drinks transport you straight out of London too. Senate Room serves a selection of Italian wines and Champagnes.

The Damage:

Dishes range between £6 and £14; Senate Room’s afternoon tea is priced at £29.50 per person.

In a Nutshell:

Most of us slow down as we age, but Senate Room remains the life of the party with crowd-pleasing cakes by day and aperitivos by night.
