Group Recognises Hot Spot for Its Luxurious Cruelty-Free Fare

Leicester – As the demand for delicious plant-based meals soars, restaurants are upping their game and vegan menus are popping up at fine-dining establishments across the UK. That’s why PETA has compiled a list of offering high-end animal-free options – and Leicester is home to one of the fanciest: North Bar + Kitchen.

With a focus on fine seasonal produce, North Bar + Kitchen offers a five-course vegan tasting menu on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings. It features dishes such as braised swede with confit onions, torched shallots, and spinach as well as chickpea meringue with coconut sorbet.

“Premier restaurateurs are cashing in on the growing demand for exquisite plant-based cuisine,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “PETA is calling on caring people everywhere to ditch meat, eggs, and dairy ‘products’ and instead enjoy a gorgeous fine-dining experience at one of the UK’s most high-end establishments.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that in addition to sparing countless animals daily suffering and a terrifying death, choosing vegan meals is a great way to reduce the risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. These are just some of the reasons why millions of British people – including 20 per cent of 16- to 24-year-olds, according to Mintel – have chosen to ditch animal-derived foods.

Other restaurants on PETA’s list are located in Bath, Brighton, Liverpool, London, Londonderry, and Stockport and elsewhere in the UK.

PETA offers a free vegan starter kit, which can be ordered here. For more information, please visit PETA.org.uk.
