Pastan opens first perm site in Notting Hill

Following two successful pop-up planted-based restaurants, Pastan has opened its first permanent location in Notting Hill, London.

Co-founders Dean Fawcett and Jérôme Ibanez-Fawcett opened their first pop-up in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden in April 2021, when the world of hospitality was just beginning to reopen.

After tremendously positive feedback from the London site, it was time for the pair to head further afield, to Bristol. It was there that the second pop-up opened at the Nectar House, Gloucester Road, serving up delicious vegan dishes throughout this summer.

The menu kicks off with plates such as Sunset in Tuscany - a sharing dish of grilled aubergines, courgettes, violet artichokes, served with lovage pesto, tapenade, olives & grissini.

For mains, the focus is on pasta with Green Velvet, a pea & shallot ravioli, salsa verde, hazelnuts & cashew parmesan, and Caspian Sea - charcoal activated tagliolini with dill hollandaise sauce, crispy kale and seaweed pearls.

Diners can finish with Pastan's signature Mini doughnut balls filled with Biscoff, and Tartlets from The Female Gaze, a vegan bakery.
