Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A menu of healthy food designed by a nutritional therapist and a diverse non-alcoholic cocktail list.

The definition of redemption is ‘the action of being saved from sin, error or evil’. But don’t let that put you off visiting this oh-so-healthy eatery. Redemption’s not on any sort of preachy mission. Despite the lack of booze, and the abundance of vegan and wheat- or dairy-free options, a meal here is not a hair-shirt experience. 

The restaurant – which follows three successful pop-ups – has non-alcoholic beer and a small range of mocktails served in vintage-style glasses. The Apple ‘Mock-jito’ was refreshingly minty, and the ‘Lettuce Spray’ a full-bodied blend of iceberg, lime, wasabi and aloe vera.

But it’s the food that really stands out. The grilled aubergine slices with tahini were chewy – almost caramelised. If we hadn’t polished off every morsel of our beetroot-and-barley risotto, and raw courgette spaghetti with walnut-and-sesame pesto, we might have left room for pudding. 

Sadly, we lacked the willpower. At an adjacent table our neighbours opted for a cashew, coconut and strawberry ‘cheesecake’. We eyed it covetously, plotting a return visit. 

Redemption now have a second site, in Shoreditch. Time Out eating & drinking editors.
