Two new restaurants have been signed for One Tower Bridge, the new development on London's South Bank.
The Coal Shed and Rosa's Thai Café will join the previously announced the Ivy and an eaterie being opened by former Masterchef: The Professionals contestant Tom Simmons from Pembrokeshire.
Located adjacent to Tower Bridge and opposite the Tower of London, One Tower Bridge is a mixed use development from Berkeley Homes of apartments, commercial and cultural spaces.
It will be the first London outlet for the Coal Shed, which is a Brighton based steak restaurant. Razak Helalat, director of the Coal Shed, said: "Since opening nearly six years ago, it feels like a natural progression to be opening to a new audience in London where we will remain fully committed to our love for quality ingredients, expertly cooked. It goes without saying that we are more than excited about what lays in store."
Rosa's Thai Cafe has a small collection of restaurants across London. Alex Moore, co-founder of the business, said: "We know the area well as Saiphin, our head chef and co-founder, used to cook for the offices in the area around Tooley Street when we first started Rosa's Thai Cafe as a market stall in Brick Lane. It's a location we know has great lunchtime and dinner potential, but, more importantly, it completes a nice circle for Rosa's because of Saiphin's connection with the area."
The Coal Shed and Rosa's Thai Café will both open in the autumn. Tom Simmons' Tower Bridge restaurant will be the first food outlet to open, ahead of the Ivy, in early spring.
