Caravan to launch new concept, Vardo
Caravan Restaurants will be opening its first West London dining destination, with new nomadic concept VARDO, this autumn.
The restaurant will be housed within a brand new, architecturally designed, three-storey stone and glass pavilion, located in Duke of York Square, Chelsea, alongside the Saatchi Gallery. The circular structure boasts 360-degree wall to floor glazing that fully retracts into the floor allowing for a seamless indoor to outdoor experience.
At the heart of VARDO, which is named after the beautiful Romani travelling wagon of the 1800s, is the notion of ‘no boundaries’, a concept influenced by the journey of the travelling wagon spanning the globe and collecting produce, spices and inspiration along the way.
The menu will bring ‘back-to-basics’ food to the forefront– showcasing low and slow cooking techniques, with carefully sourced ingredients from across the UK with global influence.
Dishes on the menu and which will be served all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner will include: ‘Slow braised carrots, brined mustard greens, aji blanco’, ‘Charred aubergine, saffron buttermilk dressing, grilled Turkish chilli’, ‘Baharat rubbed lamb cutlets, green harissa, tahini’ and ‘Green baked eggs with lentil, pine nut and kale ragu, cumin yoghurt, charred pepper salsa’.
VARDO will be open early autumn. Full details to be announced soon.
