Sketch to be redrawn

London's fantastical culinary emporium Sketch is to undergo a revamp.

The venue's West Bar is to be transformed into a daytime restaurant called the Glade, to launch on 5 September.

Menus, created by Michelin-starred chef-director Pierre Gagnaire and executive chef Gregoire Sein, will offer a range of "themed" dishes, with two courses costing around 20 - for example, eggs en cocotte served cold with gambas and serrano ham, or squid and Welsh mussels escabche.

Australian-born Anthony Garlando, formerly a sous chef at Sketch, will head the Glade's brigade. Interiors, masterminded by Sketch creator Mourad Mazouz, will evoke forest scenes and the space will be used for private functions in the evening.

Sketch's Parlour is also to undergo a revamp, with the current patisserie to be replaced by a darker, sexier bar and eaterie with a snack-focused menu.

The Gallery and one-Michelin-starred Lecture Room & Library will remain unchanged.
