Brindisa Tapas Kitchens to open fifth site
Brindisa Tapas Kitchens is set to open its fifth London restaurant, having secured a site in Soho.
The business has struck a deal to take on a 3,445 sq ft site at 18-20 Rupert Street.
The new venue, which sits close to Chinatown, will open in February 2015.
Monika Linton and finance director Ratnesh Bagdai founded Brindisa Tapas Kitchens in 2004 when they opened Tapas Brindisa in London Bridge.
They now also run Casa Brindisa in South Kensington, Tapas Soho in Broadwick Street, and Tramontana Brindisa in Shoreditch, which opened in 2012.
Bagdai said: This continues to demonstrate that we have the ability to engineer growth organically with solid management structures within. And it furthers our presence in London, particularly in Soho. The Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown areas are not only an automatic expansion to the thriving Soho scene; the attraction for us is to serve the masses of tourists and general public who frequent and visit our great city.”
Linton added: “We are very excited to be opening in the heart of the West End. Rupert Street is a wonderfully discreet yet central location in vibrant Soho and we know that Brindisa Tapas Kitchens can rose to this opportunity to further strengthen the dining offering.”
The building is owned by Shaftesbury PLC, an investor in property in London’s West End. It holds 14 acres in Chinatown, Soho, Carnaby, Seven Dials and Covent Garden. Shaftesbury was advised by Restaurant Property.
