London’s eclectic foodie scene continues to grow and we couldn’t be more excited about its latest batch! Our roundup of the best new offerings will take you from a converted workers hall in Brixton to an experimental drinks-led venture in Hoxton.
This new creative vegan concept has just kicked off a new season offering an exploration of plant based dinners free from refined sugar or dairy and unique art and design collaborations. Plates work with the UK’s top suppliers to source fresh and wild ingredients and their sample menu includes organic carrot curry and vegetable tartare with elderflower and herbs.
Plates is open one day a week and will run through until December.
Inspired by the backstreets and toddy shops of Sri Lanka with a London twist, Soho’s Hoppers has just opened their second residence in Marylebone.
Expect to find some of their most delicious signature dishes alongside exclusive creations for this site and cocktails crafted with ingredients inspired by Sri Lanka’s spice gardens. Cauliflower Kari and Jungle Negroni’s anyone?
Not your usual vegetarian restaurant, this newly opened eatery complete with garden from Joe Stokoe (behind Bounce and Flight Club), has reimagined our favourite British classics. We can’t wait to try the rainbow porridge washed down with Wild Fizz Kombucha. The bar also plays a feature role with a punchy cocktail menu. That’s Thursday night sorted.
This unique concept bar and restaurant takes over the workers hall of Britain’s first department store Le Bon Marche in London’s bustling Brixton.
The building has been beautifully transformed into an all day-late night eatery with a focus on fresh and delicious Italian food. Think beetroot frittata for brunch and wood-fired pizza sandwiches for dinner – and it doesn’t stop there. During weekdays a hot-desking service will also be available where bottomless coffee and fast wifi will be on hand.
Blurring the lines between food and drink, Cub is an experimental and collaborative venture with a carefully considered drinks-led menu that goes beyond seasonality and sustainability. Dr. Arielle Johnson, former flavour scientist at Noma is behind the innovative flavour pairings. We can’t wait to try their green tomato, fig leaf and white peach salad.
This new plant-based concept in the heart of Chelsea will offer healthy yet indulgent vegan breakfast, lunch and evening dishes. Split on two floors, the downstairs will be a casual dining space for quick lunch and juice stop and upstairs will feature a more intimate restaurant and bar.
New York’s vegan cafe chain is coming to Covent Garden and it is aiming to appeal to both vegan and non-vegan Londoners. The menu at each branch varies slightly as they source ingredients from local suppliers but you can expect the likes of guacamole burgers, quinoa hash browns and kelp noodles as well as delicious raw desserts.
Inspired by the people, lifestyle and landscape of Northern Spain, Camino is bringing the vibrancy of authentic Spanish tapas to East London. Their dynamic dishes are created from top quality, seasonal ingredients and their cocktails are made from the finest Spanish licores. We can’t wait to try their grilled red prawn, an exclusive dish for their new Shoreditch base. We also can’t wait for after work drinks – alfresco style – on their heated outdoor terrace.
