Outstanding! - Edit

This would have five stars if Happy Cow allowed it. London has long been missing the mark on vegan fine dining, and it's wonderful to find people willing to meet the challenge. The only other chefs who have impressed me with their ability to work with vegetables in such a way are Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby, of Vedge fame.

I was fortunate enough to attend an informal event there where I chatted with the chef (who is vegan) across the counter from the open kitchen. His excitement about vegan food and his creativity in the kitchen is inspired (and inspiring!). Flat Three are big on fermenting, with reinforced shelving units holding myriad jars and containers of everything from kombucha and kimchi to homemade miso and other fermented beans (it's worth a visit just to browse these shelves).

The menu changes frequently, even daily, based on what is in season and what chef Pavel Kanja fancies. The sommelier (also vegan) is also brilliant, as is her wine list (which is sake, Riesling, and Pinot Noir focussed – heavenly grapes).

These guys are so enthusiastic about food and engaged with their craft that they don't seem to have space for the arrogance often associated with fine dining restaurants. There is no air of pretension at Flat Three. None. How refreshing to dine at a place where people can and will talk with you in detail about what you're eating and drinking! I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Finally, good vegan fine dining in London, Chef and sommelier are vegan, Willing to discuss their food in detail

Cons: Not wholly vegan

Fine vegan dining in London -- swanky and relaxed - Edit

A few months ago, we had dinner at Flat Three and it was superb. The vegan tasting menu is always part of the menu. And it is inventive, delicious, beautifully prepared and warmly yet professionally presented.
They have a beautiful wine list, very knowledgeable sommelier, gorgeous sake and charming non-alcoholic cocktails (yas!). Everything about the evening was tops.
Fine vegan dining in London -- swanky and relaxed.
The decor is beautiful too - Japanese-Korean-Scandi (like their food inspiration).
Here's a run down of the courses:
🔸amuse bouche of potato fritter with a yuzu and mustard sauce
🔹fermented cabbage + French onion dashi
🔸salt baked beets, preserved yuzu + shichimi
🔹Jerusalem artichokes, crosnes, barley + dew plant
🔸smoked sand carrot, miso+ Cornish seaweed
🔹king cabbage, gochujang + linseed noodles (possibly my favourite dish)
🔸carrot sorbet, rhubarb, olive oil + bergamot
🔹tofu sorbet + pomegranate
🔸roasted marshmallow petit four

Pros: Superb food, Beautiful space , Excellent drinks

Cons: Nonvegan
