Duke of York Restaurant
The Duke of York Restaurant is located in the largely Grade II-listed Duke of York Square. Designed by NEX Architecture (following an international design competition which attracted over 150 entries), it champions the best of modern design in harmony with its heritage and surroundings. The Restaurant includes a circular roof terrace, which will be open to the public, and the UK’s first innovative glass façade which will lower into a single storey basement during fine weather, to allow for al fresco dining. It is set to become a new landmark for King’s Road, opening summer 2019.
A model of the restaurant was chosen to feature in 2018’s Royal Academy’s 250th Anniversary Summer Exhibition, curated by Grayson Perry.
