Vanilla Black Team Announces Opening of Orchard

Andrew Dargue and Donna Conroy, the partners behind Michelin recommended vegetarian restaurant Vanilla Black, have opened Orchard, a British vegetarian eatery. 

Situated among the Italian-inspired architecture of Sicilian Avenue, Orchard will serve breakfast, lunch and early dinners with eat-in and takeaway facilities as well as a grocery section. Diners can expect rustic, traditionally-inspired dishes such as Scotch Pancakes & Lemon Curd (breakfast), Toasted Parsnip Bread, Ribblesdale Sheep Cheese & Cracked Hazelnuts or Mixed Beets & Homemade Picalilli with Soda Bread Soldiers (lunch/dinner) as well as delicious pastries and sweets such as Dark Chocolate Sponge Cake with Ale Ice Cream and Ginger Parkin & Warm Golden Syrup.

Customers may also purchase unusual seasonal ingredients selected by the restaurant’s forager, as well as eggs, heritage potatoes, butter and freshly baked bread.

Chef/proprietor, Andrew Dargue, comments, “We are really excited about this opportunity to continue to make vegetarian cuisine accessible to all and offer diners in the Holborn area something a little different. We also look forward to encouraging Orchard customers to experiment at home with foraged ingredients and the other fresh foods available in our grocery section”.
