Are vegetables the new rock'n'roll?
Saturday 29 August 1998
Exclusive vegetarian restaurants are opening and most eateries are offering larger choices for non-meat eaters. Chef and restaurateur, Stephen Bull - who made his name with his meat and offal dishes - has launched vegetarian menus in his restaurants (Upper Street, St Martin's Lane branch, right). While traditional punters tuck into roast guinea fowl or marjolaine of foie gras, vegetarians can sample toasted sweetcorn and herb gnocchi with tomato salad dressing.
"Vegetarians are still not spoilt for choice, but there is definitely more of a selection," says Vegetarian Guides author Alan Todd, who is bringing out a new guide to London next month. "Vegetarian food is something everyone is getting into and restaurants have to wise up to this or they will lose out."
