Conran: Blueprint is 21 this month!

21 years ago Terence launched the Blueprint Cafe after moving the Boiler House (an exhibition space dedicated to industrial design) at the V&A to a deserted warehouse at Butler’s Wharf in 1989- now the present day Design Museum.

‘I think museums need cafes, so we decided to add an ace caff.’

Now under the management of D&D London the Blueprint cafe , just around the corner from us in Shad Thames, is one of our favourite eating spots and perfect for a relaxed lunch meeting.

The wine is crisp, the view is fabulous, and thanks to longserving Head Chef Jeremy Lee, who has been there for 15 years, the food is superb; salt cod salad, breast of lamb, crab cakes, broad beans, peas and bacon, and extravagant use of a parsley and mustard crust, as well as some really good ice creams and sorbets.

Plus we love Jeremy because he sometimes brings us cake. Absolutely no one can resist his chocolate brownies and divine carrot cake with frosted cream cheese icing.

The restaurant is 21 this month and here’s a lovely piece in The Telegraph all about it!
