Art Takeover At Muriel's Kitchen

A note from Joelle... 

♫ ♪ 'She's So Lovely' - Scouting For Girls ♫ ♪

I was kindly invited down to Muriel's Kitchen in Soho to sample their seasonal menu and check out their exciting new art project in collaboration with the Loughran Gallery.
Let's start with the food.
 Menus are placed on really cute clipboards and the table decor is art-themed too!
The plan of the ground floor is cute and quirky with some seats doubling as swings and seasonal decorations!
Pasta colanders are used as lamp shades, which is another quirky touch.
For starters, I went for the baked camembert with cashews and cranberries. The bread was pretty darn tasty too.
On a cheesey theme, I sampled the very berry cheesecake! It was a bit more crumbly than I liked, but I can't deny the amazing flavour!
Fun fact: The restaurant menu is changed every month with most ingredients locally sourced by the founder himself! That is real dedication.
Now onto the artwork, mainly located in the 'shed' extension of the restaurant...
Looking around, it was nice to see people put down their phones and discuss the artwork around them.
Here are my favourites:
 'Sheep' by Blek le Rat
 'Such Cute Flowers' by Takashi Murakami
 My favourite piece: 'XL Sea Turtle' by Dave White! 

Many thanks to the Muriel's Kitchen and Loughran Gallery team for having me. Also many thanks for the gift hamper! The scone, jam, black team and wine was a fabulous treat!

For great food and stunning artwork to sink your teeth into, head to Muriel's Kitchen, Soho.
36 - 38 Old Compton St, London W1D 4TT , Tel:  020 7434 0111
The Art Takeover runs until the 21st July 2014.
