At Eden, the focus is on plant-based meals which bring together a range of flavours and textures. Popular choices include popcorn cauliflower, mushroom spaghetti bolognese, watermelon poke and “fysh” tacos using banana blossom. The bases for the pizzas are made in-house and come with toppings such as barbequed pulled jackfruit, potato and truffle oil. There are also outrageously lime-green sliders with plant-based patties, “cheddar” lettuce and a pickled jalapeño (the colour comes from matcha food colouring).
The 80-seater space, realised by interior designer Edward De Simone, is spread mostly across a garden courtyard lit up by fairy lights and sheltered by oversized white umbrellas. It’s within The Pacific complex, which also houses QT hotel, Panama House and clothing store Saturdays NYC, among others. Inside you’ll find a Beverly Hills-inspired space with tropical coloured walls and oversized foliage.
Either seating option makes Eden an oasis for cocktail drinking. There’s a pretty purple concoction, the Butterfly Colada, made with white rum, coconut ice-cream, pineapple, sweet-pea powder, blueberries, coconut flakes and dried pineapple. Alternatively there’s a short vino list.
