For two days in January, Shoreditch shall welcome a brand new restaurant to its streets, created with the intention of improving the mental health and wellbeing of its guests.
The Good Plates has utilised interior design and menu curation to create a dining experience which inspires greater dialogue between guests, alongside dishes featuring the nutritional building blocks of a healthy mind.
Communal seating features heavily, encouraging strangers to interact with one another, sparking conversations and striving to tackle the widespread issue of loneliness within London.
A diverse range of ingredients are utilised for their mood enhancing properties, these include blueberries, cauliflower, salmon and seaweed butter; the menu as a whole having been devised by chef and mental health ambassador Andrew Clarke.
All of the money taken from bookings during the two day event will be donated to mental health charity Mind.
The Good Plates opens from 22-23 January at 46 Great Eastern Street, Hackney, EC2A 3EP.
