Saf Restaurant & Bar, 152-154 Curtain Road, EC2
Pioneering raw and vegan dining in London since 2008, Saf is the perfect place to adopt some new year healthy resolutions. The menu is globally influenced and promises dairy-and gluten-free delights such as beetroot ravioli with cashew herb ricotta, tricolour carrots and balsamic figs. Check out the all-new vegan Sunday roast and the wonderful botanical cocktails.

Vanilla Black, 17 Tooks Court, EC4
This exquisite restaurant is a delight for even hard-core carnivores. The ethos is not vegetarian in the traditional sense, but borne from the challenge of creating beautiful food without meat or fish — and it's the only veggie place with a mention in the Michelin Guide. Try the poached duck egg and Ribblesdale pudding with hickory smoked potato croquette.

Manna, 4 Erskine Road, NW3
The oldest gourmet vegetarian restaurant in the UK is still going strong after 43 years. It's a cosy neighbourhood joint serving veggie classics with a twist such as fennel and pumpkin seed sausages on a bed of garlic and carrot mash, as well as organic and vegan wines. The premises have an organic bakery offering cakes and homemade bread.
