'Acorn House' Restaurant (London)...'Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple'

The three 'S' words are how they define themselves. This restaurant  Acorn House does not recycle ideas created by others but rather combines an emphasis on fresh and seasonal products with a dedication to reduce waste in all its activities to a minimum.

Located at 69, Swinton Street in the King's Cross area of London, Acorn House serves its community more than food. It also offers 10 local young adults a chance to train for a year with them.Acornhouse_2

Calling it All Taste and No Waste, The Observer Food Monthly gave them its Best Newcomer Award for 2007 this past Sunday.

Giles Coren of Times Online called it "The most important restaurant to open in London in the past 200 years". Read his December 2006 Review for the rest of his rave.

Share your impressions if you have been there. I plan on asking them to give me a tour when I visit Europe later this year.

One suggestion I have for them is to make the fonts on their website slightly bigger. It would be more 'reader friendly'.

Also worth mentioning in the good and tasty realm: Bordeaux Quay, a green restaurant (Bristol)
