Next month, a new vegan restaurant, Kalifornia Kitchen, will open on the site of a former beef burger bar in London.
For the new London eatery, he teamed up with luxury property investors Henry Meek and Hussein Aziz. Together, they chose to open the vegan restaurant on the Percy Street site, replacing a French beef burger bar named Big Fernand.
Speaking to Plant Based News about the new vegan restaurant, a spokesperson said: ‘Kalifornia Kitchen won’t be just another vegan burger bar offering up endless fried foods’. He explained that the menu will also feature ‘superfood wraps, bowls and burritos’.
As for the décor, the spokesperson mentioned that the interior design has been ‘directed by highly-acclaimed interior designers Berry’s & Grey’. He said: ‘you can expect on-trend chic. Think luxury gold etched tables and pink Astroturf.’
Blake himself added: ‘I became inspired when visiting Los Angeles and seeing firsthand how vibrant and energising not only the food but the experience was.’
He aims to make the setting, the style and the service at Kalifornia Kitchen equal to that of L.A.’s best burger joints.
‘The settings are inspiring,’ he told Plant Based News, ‘and the food is creative in a way that goes entirely against the stereotypes that consider vegan foods as restrictive. We wanted to capture the best bits with our own spin to give Londoners a taste of this on their doorstop!’
Kalifornia Kitchen will open its doors next month on Percy Street.
