Dine in Style at Sketch Restaurant

It isn’t often that I come across a restaurant with interiors that are as compelling as the menu. Sketch restaurant in London’s exclusive Mayfair neighborhood presents just that. Established in 2003, Sketch features a variety of dining areas crafted in opulent colors and materials. My favorite space by far is The Gallery, a striking, monochromatic dining parlor conceived in floor-to-ceiling pale pink designed by India Mahdavi. As its name implies, every two years the interior is redesigned to serve as the backdrop for an artist’s work. The Gallery’s current incarnation is home to 239 new pieces by British illustrator David Shrigley, and is the largest group of original drawings the artist has ever exhibited. In addition to the works, Shrigley also created a set of ceramic tableware for the restaurant adorned with his distinctive witty drawings and text. In regards to the menu, Mazouz says, “Food is ephemeral art and has the beauty to disappear.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
