National Vegetarian Week

Posted: 18 May 2017

National Vegetarian Week is all about enjoying delicious, exciting vegetarian food. The week raises awareness that you can have a vegetable based diet, or simply have less meat on a day to day basis, without losing anything in the way of great taste or flavour. It runs every year from the 15th – 21st May, and we are more than happy to be behind the cause this year.

The likes of Tatler, Conde Nast Traveller and Vogue have all reviewed us in their pieces for the week:

Tatler:

 

“….The original Mildreds, set in a converted former Soho sex club, broke the mould with its international vegetarian menu. It is now no-bookings and has queues at peak times, but thankfully they’ve opened branches in Camden and King’s Cross too…..”

Conde Nast Traveller:

 

“….When you want dinner party cooking but without all the washing up, you can count on Mildred’s. This Soho stalwart has been dishing out homely meat-free fare for more than a quarter century, adopting a no-booking approach well before it became de rigueur. It’s lovely at lunch, when you can sit under a large skylight at the back, or – if you’re very lucky – snag one of the pair of tables outside, but especially popular for dinner, when the queue for the likes of stir-fried Asian veg or pumpkin and ricotta tortellini can stretch down Lexington Street….”

Vogue:

 

“….This Soho stalwart of over 20 years is a hot favourite with the Vogue team at lunch-time and you’ll often find us braving the queue for dinner too. Mildred’s is no secret so be prepared to wait for a table at peak times, but once you’re seated you’ll eat some of the heartiest veggie food in town in a vibrant, laid-back space. The international-inspired menu changes seasonally, but old favourites include stir-fried Asian vegetables, a black bean burrito, a Sri Lankan sweet potato curry and a beetroot and chocolate fudge cake…..”
