Marisa Bellani’s London: Ducksoup, the National Gallery, and Babington House

By Whitewaller

October 3, 2018

This week, we’re covering Frieze London and its surrounding events. To give you an insider look at the city, we’re talking to those in-the-know, who are sharing their favorite spots to dine, drink, relax, and see art at. Below, we hear from the founder and director of Roman Road, Marisa Bellani.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I love to go to Ducksoup in Soho, especially in the autumn and winter. It is intimate and cozy with a menu that often changes and has never disappointed me so far. On Sundays, lobster spaghetti at Cecconi’s is my classic. For my meetings, I often go to Little House. It is easy and central.

WHERE TO SEE ART
My favorite show of the summer was “Ed Ruscha: Course of Empire” at the National Gallery, which is on until the October 7. I also strongly recommend “Shape of Light” at Tate Modern. It’s a very interesting survey of 100 years of abstract art and photography. We have two artists in the exhibition: Antony Cairns and Daisuke Yokota. Cairns’s installation has been made especially for the exhibition.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
After an art-fair week, I always need to sleep and relax! I’d go to Babington House if in the U.K. or simply for a banya at the South Kensington Club.
