Rabbit restaurant serves up edible garden

To celebrate London’s most famous floral festival, the Chelsea Flower Show, Rabbit restaurant will be growing their very own edible garden featuring an array of edible flowers and a variety of vegetables as well as creating a delicious floral daily loosener, The Green Fingered Gardener. The garden will be a visual delight and the cocktail the perfect summer refreshment that will have guests hopping with excitement.

Also in honour of Chelsea In Bloom, talented Head Chef and co-owner, Oliver Gladwin have created a floral feast fit for any flower fairy. Dishes on the flower filled menu will include wonderful wild duck and bacon salad with wheat berries and black current blossom vinaigrette. To finish there will be home-made scrumptious shortbread with fresh home-grown strawberries and clotted cream ice-cream.

Barts in full bloom

Chelsea’s hidden cocktail bar, Barts, is in full bloom from 24th – 28th May 2016. Located just a stone’s throw away from the world’s most prestigious flower show, Barts is the perfect destination to enjoy cocktails and socialise after a visit to the esteemed exhibition. Talented and award-winning bar manager, Vincenzo Sibilia, has created an exquisite tipple as a tribute to the show aptly named The Red Flower, made with an herbaceous blend of Bombay Sapphire infused with hibiscus flowers, rose water, carpano, sugar and lemon juice. The posy-inspired libation will be served over ice in a vintage coupette and garnished with an edible flower.

 

Just in time for the start of summer, the Barts Cuban Garden will be open for guests to while away the balmy evenings underneath the stars after an afternoon spent at the show.  Featuring lush foliage, exotic plants, rum barrels and plush seating, the outdoor garden will offer guests an ideal al-fresco drinking experience.
