Taste Art London

One of London's best restaurants is a hidden gem in the venerable National Gallery of Art, where you'll get your food and art on. The National Dining Rooms have won awards and serve local, seasonal fare (like lamb fillet & sweet corn salsa, or oak-smoked salmon).

You'll also savor gorgeous artwork in a gorgeous art gallery (free!)

I went straight to that link and continued directly to the bakery section...oh my goodness, what yummies they have over there! Honestly, it makes me want to do a total, all out baked goods post but I wouldn't want to be stuck with all that temptation surrounding me.

Hahaha, I was so torn about whether to throw a bakery picture up there! :) I would LOVE to see a total, all-out baked goods post, I bet it would be AMAZING!

The food looks yummy and well seasoned...sure to appeal to my jamaican tastebuds! I love art so it would be a treat to take in great art for free! Happy Friday to you!

Jude said...

Hi Stacey! Ooh, you should totally do a Jamaican food post :) (I LOVE JA food) Happy Friday, at last!

I used to like the bar in the National Portrait Gallery for a post-work drink with a great view... bb
