Where to Eat During Frieze Art Fair

Food seems to be the talk of the Frieze Art Fair in Regent's Park this week. From full-service pop-up restaurants to food trucks and artisanal treats, it promises to be a feast for more than one of your senses. Here is what you need to know:

  • Rochelle Canteen and Mark Hix are both back again this year with full-service pop-up restaurants for anyone who needs to sit down for a proper meal and a glass of wine. Rochelle Canteen will offer snacks during the day as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner to the VIP room, while Hix brings signature dishes like oysters and smoked salmon to the mix.

  • Anyone looking for a quick pick-me-up should head to Gail's Artisan Bakery to find a selection of their signature homemade breads, mouth-watering cakes and salads and sandwiches available all day.

  • Our favourite artisanal ice cream van, La Grotta Ices, is a new addition to the fair this year. Owner Kitty Travers makes her gelato and sorbets from all natural ingredients that she sources directly from London markets. She will create special artist-inspired recipes that will change every day of the fair.

  • Caravan (Exmouth Market and King's Cross) also makes its debut at Frieze this year, serving favourites from the popular brunch and all-day menu. And for a much needed cup of coffee, Caravan coffee roasters and Coming Soon Coffee - a single-origin beans espresso coffee shop - will also be on-site to keep the crowd buzzing.

  • Moshi Moshi's ethically sourced sushi (complete with barcode to trace the origin of the fish) is always a big hit with health-conscious gallery girls and collectors.

  • Fingers crossed for good weather because the outdoor deck at Frieze will play host to three popular food trucks. Pizza Pilgrims are bringing a pizza and margherita bar while Pitt Cue Co are supplying American barbecue (expect their signature pulled pork), and Yum Bun will offer on-trend handmade steamed buns filled with meat, fish or veggies.
