The Canvas in East London has been bringing us some pretty ground-breaking ethical events and initiatives over the summer. After the success of Barbie Grrrl’s counter-intuitive vegan BBQ throughout August, today sees the launch of a new plant-based food pop-up with a difference.
Sixty:2 is a new concept restaurant that uses creatively crafted food to help people understand the relationships between the food on our plate and the world around us. It’s all about exploring the social and environmental impacts of animal agriculture on our planet, and showcasing the potential of a plant-based diet.
The inventive menu is based on taking the best local, sustainably-sourced ingredients around and transforming these into original dishes that straddle the boundary between cherished classics and quirky experiments.
Judging by the sample menu and the drool-inducing photos, this is an experience that foodies won’t want to miss. Having experimented and honed their art at various supper clubs, Sixty:2 will be bringing some of their most popular dishes to The Canvas. Think crispy wild mushroom risotto balls with a creamy balsamic dip, truffled polenta chips, and a dense cardamom sponge with syrupy hedgerow fruits. Check out the sample menu below for more of the kind of delectable delights you can expect.
A bit like Barbie Grrrl before it, Sixty:2 has an appeal that goes beyond existing vegans and vegetarians to those more generally interested in ethical living. If you’ve been toying with the idea of a more sustainable diet, then this seems like a great place to start.
The pop-up will be running throughout September at the Canvas Cafe, 42 Hanbury Street E1 5JL. You can book a table online here and they’ll start seating walk-ins from the 7th. Want a discount? Make sure you follow them on Facebook and Instagram for the details.
