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.

Conova Hall – Brixton

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.

They have transformed the building beautifully 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 in addition to bottomless coffee and fast wifi.

Cub – Hoxton

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.

Opening soon…

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.

Eat By Chloe – Covent Garden

New York’s vegan cafe chain is coming to Covent Garden and it is aiming to appeal to both vegan and non-vegan Londoners. As a result, the menu is creative but delicious. The menu at each branch varies slightly as they source ingredients from local suppliers, therefore you can expect the likes of guacamole burgers, quinoa hash browns and kelp noodles as well as delicious raw desserts. 

Camino – Shoreditch

Inspired by the people, lifestyle and landscape of Northern Spain, Camino brings the vibrancy of Spanish tapas to East London. They make their dynamic dishes from top quality, seasonal ingredient. In addition,  they make all of their delicious cocktails from the finest Spanish liquors. Therefore, you are in for a real treat, however you wont want to share! We can’t wait to try their grilled red prawn, an exclusive dish for their new Shoreditch base. And, to add to the excitement, they have a heated outdoor terrace. We have already planned some after work drinks – alfresco style!
