Don’t get me wrong, here at DesignMyNight we love vegan junk food; we worship at the chapel of seitan nuggets and give praise to plant-based burgers everywhere, but sometimes life calls for the finer things, and that’s where Naïfs comes in. Bringing fine-dining vegan and veggie cuisine to the heart of Peckham, this place is set to shake up south London’s foodie scene, and we can’t wait.

Founded by ex-Vanilla Black chef Tom Heale, the family-run restaurant is set to deliver high-quality, locally-produced dishes in a relaxed and homely setting, in other words, it’s posh nosh but you can wear your fave trainers whilst enjoying it. 

We’re already wooed by the menu which will include koji roasted celeriac, with tomato salsa and remoulade, followed by an almond and barley ice cream sandwich served with fennel, caramel and blackberries.
