Peyton and Byrne launches restaurant at Royal Academy of Arts

Published:  05 January, 2011

Oliver Peyton's restaurant group, Peyton and Byrne, is to launch restaurant and bar at the Royal Academy of Arts.

It is to be the fourth dining space at the gallery operated by Peyton and Byrne and will offer all day dining.

Oliver Peyton has worked closely with head chef Andrea Zuccolo to design a menu that makes full use of prime British ingredients and over 20 wines will be available by the glass.

Oliver Peyton, chairman of Peyton and Byrne, said: "The Royal Academy of Arts is one of London's oldest and best regarded cultural sites. It is a unique place and to work with living artists is an extraordinary opportunity, which brings a new dimension to what we do. We look forward to bringing high quality British food to all visitors, whether they choose to have a cup of tea and a cake or join us for a three-course dinner."

The decor designed by Tom Dixon will feature a glass installation housing sculptures from the Royal Academy permanent collection that have not been in the public view.

A bar made from handmade brick and lava stone from Mount Etna will occupy the full length of one wall and will also serve as a counter at which guests can have lunch, tea or a glass of wine.
