A chain of London steakhouse restaurants has surprised its customers by announcing that it will launch a vegan menu to coincide with World Vegan Month, meaning it will be launching on World Vegan Day — Wednesday 1st November.
The menu from steakhouse chain Foxlow, will be available at both lunch and dinner times and will feature food priced between £5 and £9.50. Menu items will include aubergine steak, roast acorn squash pie and carrot hummus.
The steakhouse chain has restaurants dotted across London in Chiswick, Balham, Clerkenwell and Soho and is the sister restaurant to London’s biggest steakhouse — Hawksmoor.
Richard Turner, executive head chef at the restaurants, told London Eater: “We love our meat and fish, it’s true, however at Foxlow we have leaned towards plant-centric dishes and vegan month presents a delicious challenge to pursue this even further.”
Co-Founder of the steakhouse chain, Will Beckett, explained: “We eat meat, but when we do eat the good stuff — properly reared with a view on the life of the animal and proper prices paid to farmers.
“The rest of the time we eat a lot of vegetables — for various reasons, including health, wellbeing and ethics — but actually mostly because they’re delicious.”
The London restaurant scene is currently thriving after news of two by CHLOE. restaurants opening in the capital city and a brand new location of much-loved vegan takeaway Temple of Hackney in Camden.
