Vegetarian restaurant Vanilla Black to open second site

London vegetarian restaurant Vanilla Black is to open a second site this winter, with the launch of a new British eaterie.

Owned by Andrew Dargue and Donna Conroy, Vanilla Black first opened near Chancery Lane in the City in 2008 after relocating to the capital from York.

The pair has now taken over a new site in Holborn and will open the yet-to-be-named British restaurant early next year.

The new venture, which will seat around 25 diners, will serve breakfast, lunch and early dinner and will also include a takeaway section as well as a grocery area selling items including foraged ingredients, eggs and breads.

Vanilla Black chef-proprietor Dargue said: "With this latest venture we want to continue to make vegetarian cuisine accessible to all, but also to set ourselves a new challenge.

"By serving traditional fare as well as encouraging customers to experiment at home with foraged foods, we want to remind people how great British ingredients and dishes can be."
