British Modern done dim sum-style (on a trolley) just off of Regent Street. Magpie offers a daily changing menu, excellent vegetarian options, and they assure us vegan-particular choices are coming soon. (It will be interesting to see the impact of that on the delicious, yet butter-heavy sauces.) Our waitress was very conscious of every detail of plant-based eating. Many dishes have stayed with us: barbecued cabbage with lime pickle vinaigrette (the show-stopper), celeriac and truffle, and Jerusalem artichoke to name but a few. Risotto with mole verde and barley on wild mushroom is decidedly not boring.
You get the feeling that the appeal to veggies (and soon vegans) is going to grow and grow. Great for a veggie lunch or dinner with an impressive edge. Not cheap, but an experience some are willing to pay for. If you’ve enjoyed our other recommendations, this is for you.
