London, November 2016 – SKETCH is a “destination place, for food, art and music” and conceived by French celebrity chef, Pierre Gagnaire and restaurateur, Mourad Mazouz. It is one of the most fun dining scenes in London.
Upon entering the 18th Century building on Conduit Street, one sees a hop-scotch on the floor. Cute idea! I kind of knew, it was going to be one whimsical experience.
Every girl loves pink, and I am no exception. So it made sense to have our dinner in The Gallery – entire brasserie decorated in baby pink. The walls were covered with David Shrigley’s black and white artworks…very playful. Even the ceramic tableware – which is printed with “Food”, “Dreams” etc – are created by David Shrigley.
Mr. King and I were going vegetarian that evening, and ordered a few lighter dishes – pumpkin soup, vegetarian noodles, fish main course and steamed vegetables. The food seemed quite Asian-influenced. As it was a brasserie, SKETCH had that casual ambience, and it was bustling everywhere. It felt very trendy to be dining there.
For those who desire a more formal affair, The Lecture Room, also inside SKETCH, is the place to go. Last word, please remember to check out the bathrooms!
