The site will reform Mills’ delicatessen, which has been closed for over a year following the COVID-19 pandemic.

During that time, she said she spent ‘a lot of that time reflecting’ on how to transform the outlet into the restaurant of her dreams.

It will be a ‘home of plant-based foods’, and show off how ‘innovative and delicious plant-based food can be’, she said.

Bookings are open online ahead of the opening on June 16.
