Some of the Best Vegan-Friendly Mayfair Restaurants

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 116

Trying to balance a vegan diet with fine dining can be incredibly difficult. Many restaurateurs have learned their trade using animal ingredients, so will offer minimal vegan options on their menus, or even none at all. This can be bad news for vegans that want a fine dining experience. "Can it be so difficult to create tasty vegan meals of the same quality as their animal-based counterparts?" you might ask. Thankfully, Mayfair - arguably the foodie capital of the UK - has a number of establishments that cater to the vegan palate with a fine selection of meat and dairy-free options. Let's take a look at some of the best Mayfair restaurants that serve up quality vegan food:

Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's - Anyone who's seen Gordon Ramsay's television programme will know that he loves quality cuts of meat. You may be surprised to learn, then, that his eatery at Claridge's is one of a selection of highly prestigious Mayfair restaurants that offer options for those who don't eat animal products. The menu may vary depending on seasonal availability of produce, but ask when you book and they should be able to let you know what they can cook up for you.

Murano by Angela Hartnett - Hartnett opened up Menu Restaurant in collaboration with Gordon Ramsay in 2002. It seems that they have influenced each other when it comes to serving food that's free from animal products. Her speciality is Italian, as opposed to Ramsay's French cuisine, so you'll be able to pick from a selection of Mediterranean delights to treat your taste buds with. At the time of writing, she was serving up delights such as pickled beetroot, Lyonnaise onion tart and artichoke salad. As is common with most Mayfair restaurants, you'll need to book, so - again - ask about availability before you commit to a table.

Babbo - Another of the many Italian Mayfair restaurants, this one is located on Albemarle Street, about a five minute's walk from Murano. Babbo cooks up some of the most authentic Italian cuisine of all Mayfair restaurants, and it does so in effortlessly elegant surroundings. Vegans will have to ask to make sure that all meals are suitable for their diets, but at the time of writing, Babbo's menu featured such veggie delights as zuppa di fagioli (bean soup) and zucchini fritti (crispy fried zucchini).

China Tang at the Dorchester - Warm, sumptuously lit decor and authentic Cantonese cuisine define China Tang at the Dorchester. One of the best Chinese Mayfair restaurants, this oriental eatery was opened by Sir David Tang, the founder of the Shangai Tang lifestyle brand. You'll be served food that uses the freshest ingredients, with traditional flavourings and spices - without any MSG. Animal-product-free options are also available, so you can confidently eat at China Tang without compromising your diet.

Fakhreldine - Choosing a comfy yet stylish decorative scheme, this Lebanese eatery is one of the finest Mayfair restaurants at which to soak up some Mediterranean lustre. Thanks to the Mediterranean taste for vegetable-based dishes, it also has one of the most versatile menus amongst Mayfair restaurants for vegan and vegetarian diners.

These are just some of the Mayfair restaurants that offer meals without animal products. Other examples include: tibits, La Brasserie Mayfair and - for really good-value food - Vital Ingredient on Maddox Street. Because Mayfair restaurants tend to be busy, it's best to check the availability of vegan food when you book.

Amongst the many Mayfair restaurants, there are a few that cater to those with a vegan diet. The same is true of restaurants in Belgravia - but customers should ask if they have vegan options available before they book a table.
