Chef Rishim Sachdeva’s outstanding “mostly vegan” restaurant residency Tendril will take up a three month residency in Mayfair as it reaches the final stages of getting a space of its own.
The pop-up on Princes Street, in the building formerly occupied by British neo-bistro Stem, will run from 17 June, alongside Sachdeva’s crowdfunding to support a fully fledged restaurant. Though his assemblies of carrots, squash, and courgettes in various preparations — which are generous and abundant, not finicky — have won acclaim, his non-vegan dish of brie, truffle, and honey has also been an understandable hit.
Sachdeva has told Eater London that his approach to “layering textures and flavours of one, or two key vegetables” is in part a rejoinder to the idea that “because I am from one part of the world, I can only cook that sort of food.”
