Plant Based Dining

Plates is a contemporary, creative dining company influenced by art and inspired by nature. Using only plant based natural ingredients, we focus on organic vegetables & fruits; and wild herbs in both the creation of our food and drinks menus.

We produce experiences for brands & private dinners at our Shoreditch development kitchen and restaurant, large immersive external events  and international dinners, workshops and private consultancy.

Led by Head Chef Kirk Haworth  (The French Laundry, The Square & Northcote) and his sister Keeley (Plates artistic director & partner of award wining creative studio Studio La Plage) they explore an avant garde style uniquely and passionately cooking without meat, fish, dairy or refined sugar.

We open our dining room exclusively to the public each Saturday only.

Plates founders

Kirk Haworth has worked in some of the world’s finest restaurants including Restaurant Sat Bains, The French Laundry, The Square and Quay in Sydney and is classically trained by his father, Michelin-starred chef Nigel Haworth

While Keeley’s roots are firmly in food and nutrition, she’s also co-owner of Hoxton based creative agency, Studio la Plage. Bringing her skills in creative direction to Plates, she hopes Plates will show people how natural, healthy food can be brought to centre stage with nutrition playing a vital role, as much as the creative setting & relaxed environment of their new restaurant
