Sol e Pesca, Lisbon

A former fishing tackle shop in the Cais do Sodré district, Sol e Pesca reopened as a tapas bar specialising in tinned seafood in 2010. With old fishing gear on the walls and shelves full of tins containing specialities such as tuna with black linguine and monkfish liver, it’s a culinary and aesthetic haven. facebook.com/solepesca

Tate Modern, London

To tie in with the Warhol exhibition, Jon Atashroo, head chef of Tate Modern’s Level 9 restaurant, has created a menu that would appeal to Warhol – cornflakes and Coca-Cola all present and correct. One dish is inspired by his painting of two ladies poisoned by a can of tuna; another pairs bacon ice cream with tomato sauce. tate.org.uk
