Benugo to open new restaurant at British Museum

High-street café chain Benugo is to open a new restaurant at the British Museum in January 2014.

The Great Court Restaurant will be located on the Museum's mezzanine floor directly below the building's famous steel and curved glass roof, and will feature an open kitchen and a central charcuterie table.

Redesigned and renovated by Softroom Architects, the restaurant will have a new entrance, three new dining areas, an open kitchen, and two private dining wings. It will serve light snacks and larger meals, including afternoon tea and European-inspired lunch dishes from head chef Jason Wass.

Founded in 1998 by Ben Warner and operated by Guy Kellner, WSH-owned Benugo has restaurants across UK high-streets, stations, museums, public buildings, including in London St Pancras, the V&A museum, the Natural History Museum, the Ashmolean and Edinburgh Castle. It also has sites in Hyde Park, Regent's Park and Lincoln's Inn Fields, London.

It has also recently confirmed that it will form part of the new Buckingham Gate development at London's Victoria Station, and in August opened The Garden Café at Mayfair's Brown Hart Gardens.
