Certainly in the UK, vegetarians have it pretty good these days. No longer is one mushroom risotto on the menu the standard, and in cities with a bit of a “foodie” scene, eating out as a vegan is becoming easier, too.
But I can’t help noticing that the meat-free options still usually cover the majority of healthy, sensible or diet-friendly remit of plenty of menus. You need only see the “add grilled chicken for £2″to understand the true intention of that dish.
And it is in this climate that 1847 stands out. Yes, there are healthy options. But there are decadent ones, too. Also really interesting and challenging flavour, texture and presentations of pieces. But comforting, familiar dishes (or elements of dishes) too. And it’s ALL veggie – with loads of vegan, gluten free and other allergen-free options, too.
If you want to treat the meat-avoider in your life to a fancy meal, can I suggest that 1847 should make your shortlist?
