Like Caravan, Vardo will be open all day, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. ‘Vardo is an evolution from what we do at Caravan,’ co-founder Laura Harper-Hinton told the Evening Standard. ‘It’s the next step in the journey.’
Vardo is the latest opening from the team behind Caravan restaurants
Keeping with the mobile home theme, the group have named their new restaurant after the vardo wagons used by Romani travellers back in the 19th century. The menu theme of ‘no boundaries’ is also a nod to the wagons and the idea of travelling the world collecting produce as you go. More specifically speaking, the focus at Vardo is on ‘low and slow’ cooking, with dishes on the menu expected to include charred aubergine with saffron buttermilk dressing and grilled Turkish chilli; and Baharat-rubbed lamb cutlets served with green harissa and tahini.
Vardo is housed inside the striking cylindrical pavilion on Duke of York Square. The building, designed by Nex architects, features fully retractable glass walls and, thanks to its positioning close to both the Saatchi Gallery and King’s Road, is in an ideal location for both shoppers and gallery visitors.
