New V&A Dundee seeks restaurant operator

Dundee's new £80m V&A Museum of Design has revealed it will operate a restaurant and café and is advertising for a company to run the facilities.

The 80-cover restaurant will offer an outdoor terrace overlooking the River Tay, a café bar on the ground floor and run outside of museum opening hours. 15% of all turnover from the venue will go to the museum operators.

A spokesperson for the museum told the Dundee Evening Telegraph: "Our cafe and restaurant will be a key part of the visitor experience at V&A Dundee. The restaurant will have a small, frequently-changing menu using the best of local, seasonal produce, with the cafe offering sandwiches, drinks and snacks.

"The building has been designed to allow access to the restaurant in the evening after the museum has closed, with details like opening hours to be developed with the company who receives the contract."

The museum does not have a specific opening date, but is on course to be handed over to the operators by 2018. It will be the first V&A museum anywhere in the world outside London, and is part of Dundee's £1b, 30-year waterfront regeneration. It has been designed by Kengo Kuma, the architect behind the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium.
