Veteran Vegetarian Plants Roots in Sloane Square

Franco Casolin will open vegan restaurant Wulf & Lamb in November

Twitter

The American west and east coast trend that London cannot appear to get enough of — vegan, especially vegan fast-casual restaurants — continues apace. Yesterday, it was another By Chloe; today, it’s Wulf & Lamb, which will open on Sloane Square, in November. Interestingly, though, it has the backing and operational support of a veteran vegetarian operator — Franco Casolin, formerly of Vanilla Black — who’s been around, and won plaudits, since long before London’s current obsession.

The 70-cover all-day restaurant will open at 243 Pavilion Road, to the edge of Sloane Square. They promise “fiercely kind” and “indulgent plant-based comfort food.” One might yawn at the thought, but it appears that this, in London in 2017, is eminently possible; cynicism has given way to the acceptance that vegan need not mean raw, and need not mean tasteless.

The 100% plant-based menu — replete with ‘substitutes’ — will include:

  • Chili 'non' Carne with cashew sour cream.
  • New York-style “Reuben” on rye bread which uses seitan instead of pastrami.
  • Ackee Burrito.
  • A signature spicy bean burger called the Wulf Burger.
  • Salad bowls, of course.
  • Granolas, and a vegan full English breakfast.
  • Crumbly “buttery” butter-free biscuits and other sweets from ‘vegan artisan patisserie, Ruby’s in Greenwich. Expect cupcakes and doughnuts.
