From September 28, Friday evenings at the National Gallery’s Café will be ‘the foodie equivalent of an open mic night’, according to restaurateur Oliver Peyton who runs the National Café. Each week a different chef, creative or cooking enthusiast will take the helm to produce an innovative dinner for their diners. First up is Emma Reynolds from the Japanese ramen noodle soup restaurant Tonkotsu accompanied by Bloomberg food critic Richard Vines for a night of Japanese street food and katsu curry. Other nights feature a feast of foraged ingredients with biodynamic wines from Irish chef Robin Gill, back from a stint at acclaimed Danish restaurant Noma, or a crab dinner inspired by Vincent Van Gough’s painting Two Crabs. Tickets cost £25 and include food and one cocktail.
