Welcome to Mya Lacarte. They are a British seasonal restaurant with a gentle twist.
Mya is a great place to hold special suppers and soirees, and through their seasonal moving menus you will gain a real feeling of what they are trying to achieve. The menus have been created by a team of passionate chefs who are regarded amongst the very best in their field. This is extremely apparent through their cooking, having been blessed with a mass of talent in taste, preparation and presentation.
Mya Lacarte is a British produce restaurant sourcing all the main ingredients from within the shores of the UK. Where feasible we source our produce as locally as possible. The delicious produce is then skilfully offered with a twist. The twist is influences of British dishes as we see them today, combining ideas and methods from European countries, but always using British products for the main part of the dish. We believe Britain has a wealth of natural resources culminating in first class ingredients. Due to historical factors this produce is often beaten on price and quantity by foreign imports, however quality is usually sacrificed. It is possible to provide an extensive range of dishes and flavours using only British produce and here at Mya this is what we intend to achieve.
It has been an exciting journey for Mya to research a surrounding area and develop relationships with local producers. They only use a wholesaler if they are 100% certain of the origin, and can supply them with details. This is something all supermarkets must adhere to, but something that we tend to ignore when eating out. At Mya they can authentically advise on the origin of each and every item they sell. They source the highest quality ingredient of everything from the fruits to the meat. All Mya Lacarte eggs are free range, from British farms. They pride the restaurant on not cutting any corners so the finished item to the customer is of the very highest quality.
As they are a British restaurant, and they do not freeze any of their goods (only the ice cream and sorbet), they are totally dependent on the seasons. Their a la carte menu changes at the end of the season, while the set daily menu changes as frequently as every few days. This way their talented chefs are given the creative space needed to reinvent traditional British flavours while customers rarely choose from the same menu twice.
