Situated moments from Peckham Station (really, it couldn’t be closer), Levan is an all-day bar and dining room with a strong ‘natural’ wine focus. Coming from the same team behind Brixton’s much loved Salon, Levan serves seasonal European fine dining in a casual setting. With striking midnight blue walls and an open kitchen, Levan is a bistro-chic delight to find in SE15. Although the menu is cheese and butter heavy, staff are very knowledgeable about dietary requirements and upbeat when explaining their sustainability ethos. Levan’s menu is almost half vegetarian with many ingredients coming straight from their allotment. You can start with snacks like comte fries or mushroom tempura and continue with 2 or 3 sharing plates. Vegans won’t be disappointed either. There are strictly vegan options on their sharing menu and you could also have a number of their vegetarian options prepared without dairy, which wouldn’t sacrifice on taste or compromise on quality. Their caramelised celeriac ravioli with dashi butter dish, in our opinion, is the superstar of all vegetarian dishes in London. It also is worth mentioning that their extensive natural wine list, from which the staff are happy to recommend, also have several uber tasty vegan options.
Good quality food in casual setting only moments away from Peckham Station. While it’s on the menu, the caramelised celeriac ravioli dish with dashi butter is a must try, but everything is pretty delicious.
