Starred Restaurant, review of the Royal Academy of Arts restaurant
Royal Academy of Arts, London
by ANNA McNAY
It seems to be a peculiar feature of the Royal Academy that some of its most alluring works of art are to be found in unexpected places, outside the main galleries. Take, for example, its prize treasure, The Virgin and Child with the Infant St John, also known as the Taddei Tondo, Britain’s only Michelangelo sculpture, located behind you at the top of the stairs to the Sackler Wing.
