SYMBOLISING REGENERATION, WARMTH, GENEROSITY AND LIGHT
I’m thrilled to announce the opening of my next restaurant, Apricity, on Duke Street in Mayfair.
It's a space where my team and I work in alignment with the principles of a circular economy. The name, meaning the warmth of sun in winter, symbolises regeneration, warmth, generosity and light, which reflects in both the space and the menu. It continues my commitment to running a socially conscious endeavour alongside my team of innovative and like-minded individuals, with whom I’m sure you’ll be very familiar with, who also share the values of a sustainable future.
Eve and I are working closely with our small-scale farmers and growers to create a menu that's centred around hyper-seasonal, sustainable produce and locally foraged ingredients, with a zero-waste approach to cooking.
It’s such an exciting opportunity for myself and my team, creating a space that can serve delicious food and great drinks with joy and purpose, is key to us.
At Apricity, we hero the amazing growers and farmers within the UK, as well as partner with other organisations that have an aligned ethos and culture. I am delighted to be working with Grosvenor Estates to create a greener, healthier and more conscious community within the heart of Mayfair, and beyond.
We’re also working on joining the b-corp community, as we believe it aligns with where we want to be as a business. And, we are a service included restaurant, so if you’re interested in coming to work with us then please drop us a line.
The restaurant has been designed by like-minded studio Object Space Place, using a restorative design framework, in keeping with the concept of a circular economy, with sustainable design and operating principles being followed.
There’s the option to dine in our main restaurant, the small terrace (weather permitting!) or if you’re looking for more action, a table in the kitchen.
COOKING IN HACKNEY
Following the devastating effects of Covid-19 on the restaurant industry, Chantelle decided to embark on a passion project to preserve jobs, livelihoods and mental health by opening a casual, pop-up neighbourhood restaurant in Hackney in October 2020. With a focus on zero-waste cooking, organic wines and friendly service, All’s Well quickly changed from pop-up to shop during further lockdowns and back to serving guests from May to the end of August.
After a fantastic time on Mare Street in Hackney, the team appeared at Pub in the Park Chiswick and Marlow and hosted some private events.
The team is still working in the background and will be back with updates in the new year with what's next.
ROOTED IN LONDON,
Tredwells, which closed its doors in September 2021, was located in the vibrant heart of the West End in Covent Garden, offered sustainable, seasonal menus that showcased the very best in British produce, with global flavours, developed by Chef Owner, Chantelle Nicholson.
Chantelle’s focus on sustainability and conscious cooking flowed through Tredwells’ offering, with locally sourced, seasonal produce at the forefront. Culinary adventures included an a la carte menu and our chef's five-course tasting menus which offered both plant-based and meat options; Vegwells and Taste of Tredwells.
Staples from the menu included roasted spiced cauliflower, the now-famous chouxnut and the salted caramel soft serve with honeycomb. The Sunday roasts were served with the crispiest roast potatoes, and had a plant-based option available; the Tredwellington.
Tredwells was awarded a Green Star at the 2021 Michelin Awards for UK & Ireland recognising its efforts to uphold exemplary ethical and environmental standards.
