Verdi is the appropritately named restaurant at the Royal Albert Hall which replaces the former Cafe Consort, following a £1 million refurbishment unveiled on Tuesday 15th April 2014. Operated by 'rhubarb', a group founded in 1996 by Lucy Gemmell which caters for over 400 events per year and is also behind the Sky Garden restaurants and Gallery Mess, the menu features authentic Italian dishes alongside a strictly Italian wine list served in a contemporary dining room with 224 covers. Food options include sea bream and olive gnocchi with spinach, tomato and caper dressing; stone-baked pizza with tiger prawns, asparagus, button mushrooms, mozzarella and tomato; and rigatoni arrabbiata with garlic, tomatoes and red chilli peppers all sourced from the finest Italian food suppliers. Verdi also plays host to the 'More at the Hall' series with live music showcasing the most promising young talent in London played every Friday from 8pm, lunchtime on Saturdays and as part of a brunch package on Sundays.
