Just off Oxford Street, Soho is a maze of narrow lanes and streets bursting with fashionable boutiques, funky hairdressers and London's epicentre for hip bars and late night clubs. There are a number of organic options in Soho including a couple in the lovely pedestrian Heddon Street. The Living Room at 3-9 Heddon Street is a cool place for lunch or dinner and offers informal and formal dining areas and live music. There are plenty of vegetarian options and fish dishes as well as meals to suit carnivores. Much (not all) of the fare is organic and artificial colours and flavours are avoided and there is an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients. Across the road is Tibits at 12-14 Heddon Street where you the food may be 'fast' but its also healthy and vegetarian meals made from seasonal and GM-free ingredients. Based on a Swiss formula, there is a buffet-style layout with a huge array of vegetarian and vegan options and all food is priced by weight. Drinks include smoothies, cocktails and locally-sourced beer and wine. Continuing in the European vein is a branch of the Belgian Le Pain Quotien located at 18 Great Malborough Street. Specilaising in organic and high-quality ingredients, this relaxed eatery specialised in open sandwiches, soups, bread and a selection of beverages include a choice of organic wine. The Asian-inspired vegan Vitao (formerly VitaOrganic) can be found at 74 Wardour Street and aims to provide 'food for optimum health'  - with an almost entirely organic menu specialising in vegan, macrobiotic and raw/living food. Open for lunch and dinner, Vitao is fairly small so booking is recommended. If you are looking for organic groceries then head to the local Whole Foods Market at 69-75 Brewer Street for a couple of floors of the usual Whole Foods offerings and a small cafe if you have tired feet.
