In London, we’re blessed with thousands of fantastic restaurants with diet-specific menus, but how do you choose the right one for your principal? We’ve found five of the best vegetarian restaurants in London, perfect for a business lunch, dinner or after-work drinks.

Malibu Kitchen at the Ned, Bank

This is an easy choice if your principal is entertaining guests from out of town, as this restaurant is located in The Ned and boasts impressive high ceilings and décor. One of eight restaurants in the building, Malibu Kitchen’s Californian-inspired menu is half vegetarian or vegan, giving your principal a lot of choice when it comes to their main meal. Beetroot tartare, courgette ribbons, watermelon and heritage tomato salad feature on the menu, with avocado and kale used in a variety of ways. Make sure you request one of the booths by the window if booking for a small group, as this spot will give the lunch an intimate feel.

Wild Food Café, Covent Garden

A summery edition to Neal’s Yard, this restaurant is labelled a ‘wellbeing oasis’, and is a fantastic choice for the health-conscious principal. Reservations are taken after 4pm, with the menu showcasing the best of raw food. The offering includes BBQ jackfruit, courgette spaghetti, squash bruschetta, to be followed with a juice shot or smoothie.

The Gate, Marylebone

The masterminds behind The Gate have been serving up vegetarian and vegan dishes since 1989, so they’re a safe bet when it comes to choosing a venue for your principal in the West End. They’ve had the time to perfect not only lunch and dinner, but a delicious brunch menu. The Gate is perfect for intimate lunch meetings with small tables available around the perimeter of the restaurant.

Canary Wharf, Humble Grape

If you’re looking to book an after-work spot for your principal with veggie nibbles, the Humble Grape is a faultless place. Perfect for wine connoisseurs, the restaurant boasts 30 wines by the glass as well as a further 400 different bottles available. In terms of the veggie and vegan offerings, more than half the restaurant’s bar snacks are plant-based, including smoked almonds and olives with rosemary and lemon. If your principal wishes to sit down for dinner, the cauliflower, lentil and cashew stuffed cabbage main course is one to try. They also have a private meeting room available for up to 20 guests, so the Humble Grape may double as a great spot for a team dinner.

Mildred’s, Kings Cross

The northern outpost of the Soho institution, Mildred’s menu is entirely vegetarian with some vegan options. This is the spot to pick if you’re organising lunch for a large party, as they only take reservations for parties of 10 to 12 and you don’t want your principal to be waiting in line. With a variety of main courses available, including Sri Lankan curry with sweet potato coconut green beans, Caribbean jerk tofu and coconut rum truffles to finish, there’s something for the most discerning of taste buds.
