On The Bab to leave Marylebone for larger Soho site
On The Bab is set to relocate from Marylebone to Soho, where it will move into a larger site with a seated restaurant offering.
The Korean street food business closed its express-style Marylebone site on 2 March and will move into a property in Archer Street. The concept will replace another from founder Linda Lee, Mee Market, in the Soho site. At the same time On The Bab will open its first overseas site in Paris.
Lee said: "I am very excited to be bringing On The Bab to Soho and even more so to Paris. I have been considering opening overseas for a long time, and Paris has a thriving, curious and ever-expanding food scene which On The Bab will bring something new to.
"It's sad to be leaving Marylebone, an area I love, but the lease is up on our little site on Marylebone Lane and relocating On The Bab to my larger premises in Soho means we will continue to have a presence in W1 and customers in the area will still be able to enjoy their favourite Korean street food."
On The Bab has three further sites, in Covent Garden, Shoreditch and St Paul's. Lee also owns fine-dining Korean barbecue restaurant Koba in Fitzrovia.
