Luxury department store Harvey Nichols [HN] is rolling out a vegan menu – complete with wine list.

According to a brand spokesperson, its menus have ‘never been more delicious’.

The dishes can be found in HN’s seven nationwide restaurants including London, Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh.

‘Rabbit food’

A HN spokesperson said: “This isn’t rabbit food we’re serving up; these dishes are the same standard of indulgent, mouth-watering flavours that you’d expect from us, only they happen to be completely vegan. 

“If that’s not enough for you, we’ve also created lists of the finest vegan wines to complete your dining experience.”

Harvey Nichols claims its chefs have been working on developing the menu for some time – resulting in a three-course list that makes veggies the star of the plate.

The spokesperson said: “Whether you are a committed carnivore, a fish fanatic or already a devoted vegan, we’ve got a brand new vegan menu full of the most delicious picks of green goodness for you to try.”

Menus across the country differ, but some of the dishes on offer include Fish ‘n’ Chips and Thai Red Curry.


The menu also features dessert.

According to Harvey Nichols in London: “We have, of course, kept the best for last – all the vegan sweet treats are as indulgent as you’d expect from Harvey Nichols. 

“Between coconut rice condé served with mango sorbet and a vegan chocolate cremeux with blood orange sorbet and hazelnut praline, the choice of which to go for is a tough one.”

Wines on offer include a French Chene Bleu rose and an Italian Primitivo Fatalone red wine.

This month Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge is hosting a vegan supper club with chef Gaz Oakley.
