Tell Your Friends will open on May 1st in Parsons Green and is a new vegan restaurant from sisters Lucy and Tiffany Watson who are best known for their appearance in reality TV show, Made in Chelsea.
Part of City Pub Company owned by Lucy and Tiffany’s father Clive, Tell Your Friends is a family business which will combine Clive’s expertise of the industry with Tiffany and Lucy’s desire and vision for what their own restaurant looks like.
Having embraced vegetarianism since childhood, Lucy became vegan three years ago, and Tiffany soon followed. The duo are part of a growing number of young people ditching animal products altogether in favour of a vegan diet, but in doing so are well aware of the challenges of finding great vegan food. Tell Your Friends intends to demystify veganism and show case just how tasty and accessible it can be.
A playful and innovative menu, the dishes at Tell Your Friends are divided into core sections and all are centred on iconic dishes that we know and love but instead made using vegan ingredients; Small Plates includes Chicken Bites (jackfruit with a hemp and sunflower crumb), Burgers are in fact made up of bean patties and cashew cheese whilst Mains include the likes of Fish & Chips (breaded banana blossom and cashew tartare sauce).
The interior of Tell Your Friends befits it’s fun and spirited menu – a welcoming and colourful space, polished plaster walls, a mix of high and low tables and pops of neon create an eclectic finish. The front of the restaurant is also flooded with light thanks to its conservatory-esque lean to which offers by-folding views of the New Kings Road and a verdant terrace for the summer months.
A well-stocked bar is also a main feature of the restaurant, highlights include compelling cocktails such as Rose Petal Martini and Rhubarb Royal, alongside a series of ‘Mocks’ which all use the botanical, Seedlip as their base and include The Strawberry Muddle or The Garden G&T. Cold Pressed Juices come in colourful varieties (Green, Pink, Orange, Yellow and Red) whilst Power Shots in either Turmeric or Wheatgrass provide a much needed boost to your day.
Not just for vegans, this is a restaurant for everyone at any time of day – from breakfast to dinner, it is a restaurant to share and enjoy with your friends. Created by two very social sisters; Lucy and Tiffany want you to share in the social enjoyment of eating and drinking and most importantly, to Tell Your Friends about it.
