Seven of the food brands set to open in London's redeveloped Centre Point building next month have been revealed, with the dining area set to be called Arcade Food Theatre.
The 12,500 sq ft, Grade II-listed space on New Oxford Street will feature six ground-floor kitchens, a coffee and bakery counter, three bars, an outdoor terrace and ‘the Loft', an incubation-focused mezzanine kitchen space, all showcasing emerging culinary concepts as well as music, art and design.
The brands set to open at the launch include: Mexican concept Pastorcito from the Harts Group; an outlet of Selin Kiazim and Laura Christie's Oklava restaurant in Shoreditch; and Chotto by Chotto Matte, offering more accessible Nikkei cuisine than that served at the Soho site.
The venue will also have a Flat Iron Workshop dedicated to specialist cuts and developing new dishes; Portuguese concept Casita Do Frango from the Casa do Frango owners; globally inspired bakery and coffee shop Pophams; and Tōu by Tā Tā Eatery, serving Japanese katsu sandos, which will take first residence in the Loft.
The seventh and final brand partner kitchen will be announced soon.
