Lima London to open Venezuelan restaurant in Westfield White City

The team behind Lima London is to open Caracas, a Venezuelan restaurant concept, in London's Westfield White City shopping centre.

Restaurateurs Gabriel and José-Luis Gonzalez plan to open the casual dining site, serving food based on the flavours of their home country in October.

Desserts will include tres leches (a sponge cake soaked in three types of milk) and alfajores (bite-sized shortbreads filled with dulce de leche and rolled in coconut).

Gabriel said: "José-Luis and I are so excited to be bringing a taste of Venezuela to the UK with the launch of Caracas… Venezuelan cuisine is increasing in popularity and we hope to see it embraced by the city we love."

The pair opened Peruvian restaurant Lima London in Fitzrovia in 2012, followed by Covent Garden's Floral by Lima in 2014.

Keith Mabbett, director of leasing for Westfield UK and Italy, added: "We have no doubt that this newest addition to the new Balcony Court Café will be a great success."
