Chucs chooses the Serpentine Gallery to open fourth restaurant
West London Italian brand Chucs will launch a new restaurant at The Serpentine Gallery this month.

Set within The Magazine, Zaha Hadid’s extension to the Sackler Gallery, the 86-cover restaurant will open on 7 April.

It will be the fourth restaurant in the brand’s portfolio, alongside Chucs Dover Street, Chucs Westbourne Grove and Churcs Harrrods.

Chucs Serpentine will serve the restaurant’s classic all-day menu alongside a selection of dishes exclusive to the new location, created by the restaurant group’s head chef Carlos Martinez, and executive chef Alessandro Verdenelli.

New dishes will include a breakfast dish of pastarelle fritti, macadamia and dried fruit; and lunch plates of pea and mint risotto with Reggiano and watercress; and green harissa lamb rump with mint gel and cucumber.

The restaurant will serve popular dishes from its other sites, including bigoli pasta cacio e pepe; and Yellowfin tuna tartare with baby gem lettuce.

A take-out menu, exclusive to Chucs Serpentine, will offer a selection of paninis; pizzettes; homemade ice creams; and tiramisu.

A three course set menu will be available for £25, and children’s menus will be available all day, consisting of ice creams, juices and milkshakes.

Design, a result of a collaboration between Stiff + Trevillion Archictects and Peter Mikic interiors, will feature contemporary furniture as well as oak and banquette seating, in keeping with the brand’s 1950s Italian style.

“The Serpentine aims to inspire the widest public with the urgency of art and architecture, welcoming up to 1.2 million visitors per year to its Galleries in the heart of the open spaces of Kensington Gardens,” says Yana Peel, CEO of the Serpentine Galleries.

“We are excited Chucs will be catering to this diverse community of local and global visitors”.

Chucs Restaurant & Cafe is the sister concept to the inspired 1950s swimwear and men’s fashion label of the same name.
