Alright fancy-pants, where shall we go for dinner? How about Plates, a brand-new exclusive vegan restaurant that's also a 'food studio'?
Found in Shoreditch, London, Plates hosts gorgeous plant-based events with cool vegan brands during the week then on Saturdays becomes a restaurant open to the public. It has a New York vibe, offering a five-course set menu (changed every three to four weeks) 'designed to take guests on a culinary journey'.
Plates is the innovation of siblings Keeley and Kirk Haworth – the latter having been a chef at some very fine restaurants around the world. He also has experience of living with Lyme disease which has influenced his food.
"My health has meant that I have had to completely re-think the way I cook and the ingredients I use," says Kirk Haworth, Executive Chef and Co-Founder.
"At Plates we deliver something unique, both at the restaurant and at the food studio. We explore the intricate relationship between food, art and environment, creating a style that is new, entirely natural and innovative in its technique.
"Inspired by my own plant-based diet and years training with the best Michelin chefs, I now take all that nature offers to deliver a new experience in plant-based dining."
