Join us to celebrate the fusion of art and food during a panel discussion on the aesthetics of dining, moderated by Christina Makris (Writer), joined by Ayo Adeyinka (Director, TAFETA), Cherry Truluck (Artist) and Caroline Hobkinson (Curator & Writer).

The panel will investigate what makes collaborations between artists and chefs so exciting, discuss crossovers between cooking and art, and explore artist-designed menus.

Admission includes one complimentary cocktail from our bespoke menu curated on the ocassion of Frieze week to coincide with TAFETA’s exhibition in the Lavery Studio, “Architecture of Tropical Spaces”.

We encourage guests to make a reservation to taste the full offering following the discussion at 6:00pm. You can book a table here and preview the menu here.
