Renowned Chef Richard Corrigan Set To Open Restaurant In National Portrait Gallery

Michelin starred chef and four time winner of the great British menu, Richard Corrigan is set to open a new restaurant in the redeveloped National Portrait Gallery when it reopens its doors this June.

Corrigan, chef and patron of multiple restaurants including London's Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill, and the popular Corrigan's Mayfair, has partnered with caterer Searcys to launch The Portrait Restaurant on the top floor of the famed National Portrait Gallery following three years of significant refurbishment and transformation of the gallery itself.

The new destination restaurant and bar will open across the top floor of the Gallery, in an intimate space with panoramic views that take in Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament.

In true Corrigan style, menus will showcase only the best of British and Irish ingredients and take inspiration from some of Richard's most memorable dishes from his culinary career to date, re-introducing forgotten classics to the Gallery's guests. Expect delights from the sea and land, artisanal smokeries, and Irish soda bread from the Bentley's bakery.
