What: Farm Girl
In a nutshell: Health-conscious Aussie food and boozy superfood smoothies.
Summing it all up: After a well-matched first-floor takeover of Oxford Street’s hip Sweaty Betty gym shop, Farm Girl are on the move again to Chelsea, where they’ll be opening their third cafe and their first ever dinner menu.
It wasn’t that long ago that we reported on Aussie health food spot Farm Girl’s arrival in Sweaty Betty’s behemoth store on Oxford Street. Now, they’re at it again with the announcement of their first all-day restaurant and bar - so you can expect to see more of those superfood cocktails.
Starting from the top though: brunch, which will be familiar territory for fans of the Notting Hill-based restaurant. There’ll be coconut bacon for your BLT, smoothie bowls and oven baked aubergines, with caffeine pick-me-ups like the Butterfly Matcha Latte made with highly Instagrammable Matcha Blue powder or their turmeric latte with cinnamon and honey.
Come the evening, Farm Girl will be turning their hand to dinner service for the first time with more hearty dishes like Cod Croquettes with a Green Herb Sauce or Lamb Gyro with Roasted Pistachio Yoghurt, and an Apple & Pear crumble for pudding.
And the cocktails? Well, much like the Soho cafe, we’ve heard that there’ll be strawberry and lavender infused FAIR Vodka to go in their boozy-yet-healthy superfood creations with help from Gianfranco Spada (Experimental Cocktail Club, Chess Club).
There’s more than a passing thought given to the interior too, which will be resplendent in green leather, pink marble and illuminated arches all over the place which they say should “contribute to an otherworldly, sensory experience.”
