The UK's first fully vegetarian restaurant chain, and the first global chain to carbon footprint every menu item, is launching in London this ummer with three central venues.

Otarian, the brainchild of Australian environmentalist Radhika Oswal, will launch its first two sites on Shaftesbury Avenue and Wardour Street in June, and its third on Regent Street later this year before expanding across the rest of the UK.
