ExCeL London Hospitality launches new Urban Garden

ExCeL London Hospitality, a partnership between ExCeL London and Levy UK, is launching Urban Garden, a new retail concept which has recently opened on the venue’s central boulevard.

Thursday 20 September 2018

Urban Garden will have stellar menus featuring dishes which are freshly made on site, using high quality, locally sourced produce and seasonal ingredients. Dishes will re-create the colour and vibrancy of the farmer’s food market, bringing guests a taste of countryside calm in the hustle of a busy city environment. This latest addition comes as part of a continual investment in the food and drink offering at ExCeL and a philosophy that great food will help deliver great event outcomes.

The natural, wholesome dishes will include a range of hot, cold, sweet and savoury items including Moroccan power protein bowls, lemon and pesto chicken, gluten-free chocolate and almond cookies, and cheese and sundried tomato palmiers. The ethos behind Urban Garden means that they will only partner with the most passionate producers, who grow and rear quality, locally sourced produce where possible.

Kevin Watson, Business Director of Confex for Levy UK, said: “We believe food tastes better when it's fresh and we know the thousands of guests who visit ExCeL each year are going to love eating at Urban Garden. Good food experiences not only transform the guest visit, but the fresh and high-quality ingredients will also benefit their productivity and well-being.”

Simon Mills, Executive Director at ExCeL London said: “We are excited to be introducing this brand-new concept at ExCeL. Supporting our aspiration to be the home of world-leading events, we are committed to making sure that guests at ExCeL have a really positive food experience- one which is healthier, more enjoyable and where there is lots of choice. Urban Garden is, therefore, a fantastic addition to the portfolio of eateries on our central boulevard.”

Urban Garden will be the newest addition to the other great food and drink brands which include E16, Viva Burrito and Pummaro as ExCeL London continue to offer the very best in exhibition and conference catering.
