Chantelle Nicholson's new sustainability-focused central London restaurant, Apricity, will open on Tuesday 12 April.

Located on the Mayfair end of Duke Street, Apricity 'will pioneer the principles of a circular economy’ with a menu centered around hyper-seasonal, sustainable produce from small-scale farmers and locally foraged ingredients. 

The opening, which was first announced back in November​, follows Nicholson’sHackney-based ‘pandemic pop-up’ All’s Well​, which was set up to preserve jobs, morale and positivity within the industry over the last year. ​​

Her debut restaurant Tredwell's, which also championed sustainability, closed last year​​​ after seven year in business.

Apricity will continue the former Marcus Wareing chef’s ‘commitment to running a socially conscious endeavour with her team of innovative and like-minded people who share her values of a sustainable lifestyle’.

Following with a zero-waste approach, Nicholson has worked closely with head chef Eve Seemann to create a menu that will include the likes of Cornish mackerel; Shetland mussels with sambal butter and pickled pear; roasted Kuri squash with fermented fire flame chilies, miso aioli, squash seed crumb and Thai basil; venison with elderberry and walnut butter; and crispy brussels sprouts with spent beer vinegar and rosemary.

There will also be dedicated tasting menu celebrating British vegetables, as well as a meat and fish-focused menu.

The drinks offer, meanwhile, will major on low intervention wines with an emphasis on those produced in the UK alongside a selection of ‘innovative’ zero-waste cocktails.
