Spring, the critically acclaimed restaurant opened by Skye Gyngell in the New Wing of Somerset House last October, has announced the launch of The Salon, an intimate trio of spaces adjacent to the main dining room, which will open on Friday 3rd April.
The Salon will comprise of tree-lined tables at the front of the restaurant, a dining bar, and an atrium garden, and will offer a relaxed and airy dining space flowing from Spring’s entrance into the heart of the restaurant.
The space, created by Australian interior designer Briony Fitzgerald, sister of chef proprietor Skye Gyngell, will seat 45 in total and will be flooded with light from the atrium’s glass ceiling, while flora and fauna designs by acclaimed landscape designer Jinny Blom will create a natural backdrop brining the outdoors in. A light colour palate reflects the design that the restaurant has become known for, with white and cream linens sitting alongside striped yellow banquettes in the garden.
Open from noon until 11pm, Monday to Saturday, and from noon until 5.00pm on Sundays, The Salon will not accept reservations, thus encouraging those working or living nearby, or visiting Somerset House or the Strand to drop in for a brief lunch, a post-work cocktail, or an early supper.
The Salon will be a welcome addition for fans of Spring and Skye Gyngell’s, allowing them to enjoy her seasonally-inspired dishes on a day-to-day basis.
