Alyn Williams at the Westbury – Mayfair

What kind of food b”logger” “wood” turn down a chance to taste @alynwilliamswestburyOne Michelin Star vegan menu? {complimentary meal} 🌱⭐️

(Yes, that might be one of my worst puns)
I‘ll happily try any cuisine in any environment (provided its vegan of course), whether it’s a burger stall or a fancy pants restaurant.

There are so many ways to celebrate and enjoy food! 🍴

So, I was delighted to get a little bit posh for a change at @alyn_williams’ beautiful restaurant last week ♥️
✏️ The thing that struck me the most about this spot in classy Mayfair, aside from the fab vegan menu, was that it felt comfortable and friendly which I always look for in slightly more upmarket restaurants! I find fine dining a lot more enjoyable when the staff and venue don’t feel pretentious. The staff were really down to earth, chatty but also professional and knowledgeable at the same time.

The nine course vegan tasting menu boasts:
🌱 Polenta & Romesco, Tempura Shimeji mushroom, carrot & truffle and Dashi
🌱 Cucumber, apple & dill granita .
🌱 Cauliflower, black garlic & seaweed
🌱 Baby artichoke with BBQ calcot, minestra nera & barigoule
🌱 Beetroot tartare with hazelnuts & kuzu
🌱 House salad .
🌱 Kohlrabi, maitake, Hispi, almonds & pink firs .
🌱 Blood orange .
🌱 Rhubarb & blackberries

💰 £90 / £140 w/ beer pairing / £160 w/ wine pairing
This food is, as expected, excellent. @jolley_chris and I had a chat to Alyn and the team (what lovely people) and he told me that his veggie wife inspired him to create this 🌱 He also said he’s aware that some fine dining menus can lack substance so he worked hard to ensure that didn’t happen 🙏🏻
Alyn has created an amazingly varied menu with textures and taste combinations I’d never tried. I don’t know much about wine but the pairing we had was fantastic and truly complimented each dish 🍷 My favourite courses were the Kohlrabi (photo 3) and Cauli & black garlic (photo 7). The only dish I didn’t love was the house salad but I’ve never been a big salad fan!
If you’re looking for a fancy date spot, this is a great option! 👀 I think £90 without wines is very reasonable for Michelin 🌟 Plus, you’ll leave feeling like your tastebuds have been on an adventure ♥️
The team were kind enough to give me this meal for free but all views are my own and honest
