A new vegan restaurant will open on Upper Street in Islington from Friday, December 14.
The Wild Food Café is the second of its kind, and it follows on from the success of its original location in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden, which opened almost seven years ago.
The new restaurant emphasizes “plant-based innovation” as it is committed to bringing “the heart of nature” to the Upper Street dining scene.
Before the restaurant opened, founders Joel and Aiste Gazdar said: “Our goal is to celebrate nature and nature in a positive ‘winfinity’ way.
“We have always viewed everything we do as serving and benefiting the local and global community and at the forefront of the plant-based movement so vital to individual and collective well-being.
“We hope to bring this hub to Angel and are very happy to be able to establish a bigger, bolder and innovative restaurant and wellness space in North London, reaching many more people in Islington, London and beyond. . “
The Islington outpost of the Wild Food Café is to be four times the size of its sister site in the West End. Unlike the original, this new Angel restaurant will also accept reservations.
Selected dishes will include entrees like the Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich Bites – with raw walnut and zucchini bread, a little gem, black garlic cashew cheese and BBQ jackfruit – as well as scallops royal oysters and wabi-sabi kale salads.
For more hearty dishes, Living Laksa offers a vegan twist to the popular Malaysian dish, while Queen of the Forest is a coconut-seared plantain stew with romanesco, black rice, amaranth and other nutritious treats. Wild Food Café will also offer gluten-free wood-fired pizzas.
For drinking, the restaurant will offer fruit juices, superfood smoothies, natural wines and superfood cocktails as part of its regularly changing “liquid food” menu.
Joel adds, “Islington is a beautiful and charming region that bridges the gap between west and east. It’s within a reasonable range of our first location, has a lovely vibe and it’s a nice residential area. Our whole team loved it when we came to take a tour of the site.
Wild Food Cafe Islington will open at 269-270 Upper Street, N1 2UQ on Friday, December 14. For more information, visit their website.
