VardoVardo opens in early autumn 2019.

In a prominent spot on Duke of York Square, between the Saatchi Gallery and Partridges, sits a striking, architecturally designed circular structure. Vardo is a new concept by Caravan , the antipodean restaurant and coffee roastery which first opened on Exmouth Market in 2010. The three-storey stone and glass pavilion features a fully retractable glass wall that sinks down into the floor so you get 360-degree views and a whole lot of fresh air flooding in. Named after the beautiful Romani travelling wagon of the 1800s, Vardo also references their ethos of 'no boundaries' as the wagons would travel around the globe collecting produce and spices along the way. These habits are reflected in dishes like s low braised carrots, charred aubergine with saffron buttermilk dressing and baharat rubbed lamb cutlets. Low and slow cooking techniques are used to make simple ingredients like baked eggs with lentil, pine nut and kale ragu come to the fore when served with cumin yoghurt and charred pepper salsa.
