Please note that Levant is no longer a restaurant.
We have moved to Alhampton, near Castle Cary, from where we will be continuing our catering service.
From 2007 to 2020, Levant was both a restaurant and a caterer. In early 2021 we moved from Castle Cary to Alhampton, saying goodbye to our lovely previous home, Brookfield, where the restaurant was based. From Alhampton we continue to offer party catering.
The concept was originally inspired by Tanya’s Sephardic Jewish heritage — a melting pot of Spanish, North African, European culture and traditions. It’s a modern take on the food of “childhood memories and the food that I love: filos, fatayers, muhamarra, spicy fishcakes and koftes.” We have now branched out to include all of the culinary world.
So you might find Moorish-style meatballs, Spanish tortillas, Persian stews and roasted aubergine dips on the menu here: spiced, sometimes delicately perfumed and always beautifully presented.
Levant’s menu changes weekly but there’s always mezze to share as well as vegetarian dishes, salads, scrumptious desserts and a cheese board featuring local Somerset varieties. Only the freshest seasonal ingredients are used and, wherever possible, sourced from suppliers within just 20 miles of Castle Cary.
Please call Tanya to discuss catering or send us a message using the contact form.
