Eating & Drinking at Frieze 2018

Frieze London, one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs, returns to Regents Park along with Frieze Masters (the newer fair with a contemporary perspective on historical art). There is a fine choice of drinking and dining options with the addition of exciting new partners as well as the return of many favourites from previous years...

At Frieze London, The River Cafe joins the fair for the first time alongside returning favourites Petersham Nurseries, Moro, Brunswick House, Gail’s Artisan Bakery, Yalumba, Company Drinks and Ahi Poké.

Petersham Nurseries is again taking part in Frieze London. Head Chef Damian Clisby has curated a special menu with dishes including: chestnut pappardelle; baked lemon sole with Casteluccio lentils & spinach and cutlets of lamb with coco beans & late season tomatoes& oregano. Downstairs at Frieze London, Petersham Nurseries serves drinks all day together with a more informal take-away menu. Handpicked wines from the Petersham Cellar collection are also available alongside a selection of cocktails. Another returning favoruite is acclaimed British restaurant Brunswick House. Jackson Boxer and his team are offering a selection of their favourite autumnal food, using the freshest and most seasonal ingredients and serving inventive, seasonal food. 

Nearby at Frieze Masters (approximately a 15 minute walk from Frieze) Locanda Locatelli, one of London’s best-loved Michelin-starred Italian restaurants will be serving up an a la carte menu of a traditional Italian menu which includes a selection of pastas, salads and risottos accompanied by specially chosen Italian wines.

Also, making an (re) appearance is leading Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant UMU (London’s first Kyoto restaurant) with Executive Head Chef Yoshinori Ishii curating a special menu with bento boxes and a selection of hot ‘signature’ dishes including Umu's signature ‘fish and chips’ tempura. There is also a bar serving Japanese cocktails as well as a wide selection of sake, wines and Champagnes.

GAIL’s Artisan Bakery returns to both Frieze Masters (and Frieze London) this year. Each pop-up café serves freshly made sandwiches, seasonal salads, soups, pastries and cakes, as well as wine, beer and hand-roasted coffee. Inspired by The Regent’s Park setting, the cafés are decorated with flowers and greenery.
