But luckily for everyone, they put on Grain Store Unleashed, a much more adventurous and much more accommodating type of dining. If they are smart and/or nice, the restaurant will decide to either do the Unleashed-style pop-up again, or, better yet, add the vegan dishes to their subpar menu. Because this vegan menu was great!
So the food! They started us off with an avocado toast plate, compliments of the kitchen, which is pretty much the greatest way to start off any meal. Or any kind of event, really. Avocado toast? That you weren't expecting? That is free? Yippee! Unfortunately, it wasn't a 100% perfect experience, because you could tell the puree came from avocados that they bought in this country (England). You could taste that they were not yet ripe when they were cut, and also that they never would have ripened anyway. That's what avocados here taste like. Blergh. Still, not great avocado toast is pretty good.
GRAIN STORE UNLEASHED AT THE ZETTER HOTEL
Water speed: Really good for London!
Service: Equally good and attentive.
Bathrooms: Oh my the bathrooms. You had to go out sort of towards hotel reception but down a spiral staircase through a few rooms of really...interesting bars. You just spiraled downwards through business people's conversations and were like don't mind me just have to pee! Sooo weird. The bathroom door was very heavy.
Food: Really nice overall and I'm so glad I got to go.
Bonus: I learned about glutamates and tapioca.
