Glass enjoys the new Apericena menu at Muriel’s Kitchen in South Kensington, London

LOCATED just off the corner of the South Kensington station, Muriel’s Kitchen invites everyone with its warm interior décor and selection of freshly baked goods on the counter. Founded by husband and wife duo, Charlotte and Sam Miller, Muriel’s Kitchen is a great place to take a breath from the busy streets of London.

Named after Charlotte’s Grandmother, who took pride in her cooking, the restaurant is known for its quality, seasonal food and homely atmosphere.

Now, the couple is excited to announce the opening of three brand new venues located in the National Gallery: an espresso bar, a café and a standalone restaurant, launching in the spring months of 2022.

Created with a desire to serve fresh and seasonal products to their customers, Muriel’s Kitchen uses only sustainably sourced fish and Red Tractor assured meat. Operating as an all-day bistro, Muriel’s Kitchen introduces the new addition: a new Apericena menu available to the guests in the afternoon.

It will include a lot of heart-warming plates such as Horseradish Salmon on Toast, Winter Squash Salad served with burnt sweetcorn and avocado and feta salsa and, my personal favourite, Muriel’s Coronation Cauliflower which takes an interesting twist on a cauliflower frittata by adding toasted almonds and sultana mayo.

Every dish is paired with one of the natural wines selection from Naturally Aspirated Wine – West London’s Natural Wine Shop and Bar, which Muriel’s has recently partnered up with. Everyone will be able to find something for themselves from a sparkling white Bianco Bio Frizzante with peachy tones to dark and juicy red Dosset and the exceptional orange Baglio Antico full of citrus peel hints for those more adventurous.

As for the three new venues, Muriel’s idea was to cover all the dining needs of the National Gallery visitors. From a quick cup of coffee at the espresso bar, staying for a relaxed lunch in the cafè, which is going to resemble the setting of the Muriel’s Kitchen in South Kensington, and finally to enjoying a longer meal from a la carte menu in the restaurant which will be open from breakfast until dinner with weekend brunch and afternoon tea options.

Muriel’s Kitchen provides a perfect and warm escape from the current grey aura outside, if it is to have a delicious but healthy lunch or to catch up with friends and family over a glass of wine.
