Plant Based Dining

Plates is a new plant-based food studio and restaurant, influenced by art and inspired by nature.

Using only plant-based natural ingredients, Plates focuses on organic vegetables & fruits; and wild herbs in the creation of both food and drinks menus.

The restaurant delivers a seasonal menu of nature-inspired creativity, refined through Michelin-star techniques from Executive Chef and Plates co-founder, Kirk Haworth. Together with creative director (and sister) Keeley, they founded the unique dual-purpose space in Hoxton, East London.

During the week the food studio works with brands and clients to deliver artistic, plant-based collaborations, catering and content.

Executive Chef Kirk (formerly of The French Laundry, Restaurant Sat Bains, The Square, Quay & Northcote) has created a style that is new, entirely natural and innovative in its technique; passionately cooking without meat, fish, gluten, dairy or refined sugar.

The restaurant exclusively opens its doors to the public each Saturday evening.

Reservations currently available 8 weeks in advance

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
