Foxlow steakhouse, which is run by the operators of Hawksmoor steakhouse, is trialling the new vegan menu during November.
During World Vegan Month (November), the four sister restaurants of London’s most famous steakhouse, Hawksmoor, will launch a vegan menu — an initiative, they say, is to coincide with “World Vegan Month.” The new menu launches on Wednesday 1 November (“World Vegan Day”) and will be available at both lunch and dinner.
It might strike many as a surprise to learn that a business known for their meaty offerings would decide to offer an all-vegan menu, but owners Will Beckett and Huw Gott and chefs Richard Turner and Lewis Hannaford, say that the addition of vegan dishes to Foxlow menu is a reflection of how they like to eat, and how difficult they found it to find great vegetarian or vegan food when the mood hit them.
Some of the vegan menu items, priced between £5 and £9.50, will be available in the restaurant beyond November; they include:
- Carrot hummus with carrot top pesto and chilli
- Roast acorn squash pie with vegan gravy
- Spice-roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, wilted spinach and curried aubergine sauce
- Aubergine ‘steak’ with wild mushrooms, onions and vegan béarnaise
Speaking to Eater, Richard Turner, Hawksmoor and Foxlow’s executive head chef said: “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.”
