THE EATS

Deer + Almond

Pop megastar Ed Sheeran recently popped by Deer + Almond, indulging in some desserts which he said featured “all his favourite things” in an interview with Ace Burpee. Come check out some fine dining delights, delicious cocktails and those Sheeran-approved desserts in a restaurant that is quite literally a work of art on your next date or outing with friends and family.
