Mayfair’s Apricity is a zero-waste restaurant that uses sustainable produce from small-scale farmers alongside locally foraged ingredients. Choose from a range of menus, including a tasting menu celebrating British vegetables, and another featuring regeneratively farmed meat and sustainably caught fish from the British Isles. The restaurant even offers a Culinary Kids tasting menu to help children learn more about seasonality and where food comes from. The drinks menu includes low-waste cocktails and an extensive list of low intervention wines sourced from growers that care about soil and biodiversity while championing English vineyards and winemakers. Even the restaurant’s interiors were created sustainably by designing everything so it can be taken apart, re-used, donated and recycled at the end of its life.
Mercato Mayfair is a sustainable food hall housed within a deconsecrated church on foodie hub North Audley Street. With two levels of food stalls and bars, along with a rooftop terrace, wine cellar and community space, Mercato’s mission is to use fresh and sustainably sourced ingredients. Standout food and drink stalls championing sustainability include GermanKraft, which has been serving beer exclusively from tanks and refillable kegs, cutting their carbon footprint by 75%. Italian gelato brand Badiani use high-quality, natural ingredients while maintaining recycled, biodegradable and compostable packaging. And Jim and Tonic use leftover orange peel as an ingredient in their gin. Mercato also has a zero-plastics policy: all cutlery and crockery are made from plant-based materials and is compostable or biodegradable. The food hall also has a strict zero to landfill policy, disposing of waste through anaerobic digestion, recycling and incineration. Mercato boasts a 75.57% recycling rate, while 100% of waste is diverted from landfill.
