The only Michelin-recommended vegetarian restaurant in London, Vanilla Black offers a unique dining experience to satisfy the discerning palate, whether you're a vegetarian or confirmed carnivore. Tucked away in Tooks Court, just moments from the bustling Chancery Lane, this intimate eatery is run by husband and wife Andrew Dargue and Donna Conroy. The pair decided to open the restaurant after realising that there were few options for vegetarian diners beyond the casual café-style venues serving the usual goat's cheese salad and nut roast fare.

In contrast, the stylish art-deco-inspired interior of Vanilla Black combines with its imaginative menu and warm, friendly service to create a sense of sophistication, without being overly formal or fussy. As head chef, Andrew is passionate about redefining contemporary meat-free cuisine by experimenting with original and surprising flavour combinations. The result is an exceptional menu that challenges the common misconception that non-meat dishes must be bland and uninspiring. Freshly prepared from the finest ingredients, highlights include Yorkshire feta cheesecake with pear and vanilla chutney, poached duck egg and Ribblesdale pudding, and whipped celeriac with apple and kohlrabi salad.

Desserts are equally imaginative, with offerings such as orange and treacle pudding with cardamom milk and orange flower crisp, and Valrhona chocolate truffle cake with espresso syrup. The dishes are complemented by an excellent selection of European and New World wines, as well as an array of liqueurs and spirits
