Elior set to launch 16”West Brasserie at the National Maritime Museum
Elior is proud to announce the launch of two new dining venues at The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich this summer: 16”West Brasserie and Museum Cafe.
16”W Brasserie – which stands for Sixteen Seconds West, its exact location from the Greenwich Meridian line - will be a wonderful new food destination. The brasserie and its menu will feature global influences, while overlooking the beautiful vistas of Greenwich Park.
16”W Brasserie and Museum Café are part of the National Maritime Museum’s new Sammy Ofer Wing, a major capital project. As part of the redevelopment, the main entrance to the museum will be from Greenwich Park looking towards the Observatory. Both the café and the new brasserie will be front facing, with glass walls and external terraces so the location will be well suited for al fresco dining.
The brasserie will be a stylish and contemporary space with a modern European menu that has been devised in consultation with celebrated chef Anton Edelman. The new brasserie will be a sophisticated yet accessible destination for the Londoner and tourist alike. It will be a space that evolves as the day unfolds, serving delicious lunches, afternoon teas and dinner, delivering big, bold flavours with panache in a welcoming environment. In particular the afternoon teas served in the Brasserie will be a highlight.
Visitors can expect to see plenty of traditional favourites with a few modern twists along the way, all composed on site using the freshest produce. The provenance and sustainability of the food is of paramount importance to the chefs, with locally sourced ingredients utilised where possible and daily specials on offer according to what is available at the daily markets.
The brasserie will be complimented by a wine list which encompasses classic varieties and the best of the new age wines from around the world as well as celebrating blossoming English wines.
The cellar will also serve the finest local beers, ales and ciders with knowledgeable staff passionate in offering food matching suggestions.
As well as 16”W Brasserie there is also the new Museum Cafe. Blending nostalgic products with contemporary innovation, the menu has been designed to offer freshly handmade British food from early morning through to early evening, consisting of freshly baked goods, fresh deli sandwiches, hearty plates and delicious afternoon teas with home-baked cakes and pastries.
Promoting traditional English products alongside the chef’s own innovations, the cuisine in the Café will be flexible, locally sourced where possible and will celebrate the seasons.
Fresh baked breads and pastries every morning, artisan sandwiches, colourful salads and decadent cakes are the order of the day. Fully catering for children with a selection of tasty, energy-packed meals and treats incorporating healthy options. The beautiful indulgent surroundings of the Cafe will offer families a relaxing experience.
With a fresh juice bar, barista coffee counter and grab-and-go options on offer, the Café will cater for Greenwich Park visitors and those simply passing by.
Summer ‘picnic in the park’ options will celebrate a quintessential British pastime. The Café will be a celebration of British produce, baking and day time traditions, with service and products matching the very best of London’s artisan cafés and bakeries.
The brasserie will have its own website and online reservations system. There will also be food and drink workshops, beer and wine classes on set nights.
