Thu 7th May 2015 - First seven operators unveiled for new London restaurant quarter
First seven operators unveiled for new London restaurant quarter: A total of 18 new restaurants are set to open in Nova, Victoria, next year, creating London’s newest restaurant quarter - seven of the operators were unveiled today. Nova, Victoria is an architecturally striking development that will create a new link between Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace, which in turn leads onto the Royal Parks. The 897,000 sq ft destination will house office space, high quality apartments and restaurants, bars and rotating dining experiences. The seven operators now confirmed to be opening at Nova are: Jason Atherton will add to his growing portfolio dining destinations that include Pollen Street Social and Berners Tavern, with the opening of an Italian dining concept at Nova. The restaurant will feature a pasta room where diners will be able to see the food being made. Adam White, co-founder and managing director of renowned brasserie The Riding House Café – whose London based restaurant collective Village London also includes Village East and The Garrison – will develop a unit with a view to opening an all-day offering. The space will offer 150 covers, with a sizeable outside seating area, an upstairs bar and a private dining room. Interior design will be by Adam White in Conjunction with Lou Davies of Box 9. Will Ricker who success with his Pan-Asian restaurants and more recently his Mexican brand La Bodega Negra, both here and New York, is bringing his two latest concepts to Nova. The Stoke House is an American BBQ that uses a cooking method of wood burning pits, on cuts of brisket, ribs, chicken and pulled pork, set in a contemporary bustling dining hall. Directly across from the Stoke House, will be the Juice Well, Ricker’s second organic cold press juice, super food smoothie and highly nutrient dense food store. Having recently overseen the successful re-launch of Quaglino’s, D&D London – the restaurant group behind favourites such as Bluebird and Skylon – will open a 10,000 sq ft restaurant on two floors of Nova South, comprising a cafe, bar, outdoor terrace and food retail on the ground floor, together with a restaurant on the first floor. The interior is to be designed by Russell Sage Studio. Sourced Market, which opened the first produce market in a train station in St Pancras in 2009, opens its third site at Nova in 2016. Working with the best of Britain’s small, artisan producers the team will bring their blend of market retail and all-day dining to Victoria, offering everything from artisan coffee to craft beer and charcuterie to croissants. Ross Shonhan, chef-proprietor of Bone Daddies in Soho and Kensington, Flesh & Buns in Covent Garden and – most recently – Shackfuyu in Soho, is bringing his Ramen Bar to Nova. Alongside some of Shonhan’s signature ramen and filled buns, Bone Daddies will be introducing a contemporary take on Osaka-style Okonomiyaki in a restaurant spread across two floors and a sizeable outdoor space. David Atcherley-Symes, retail leasing director, London Portfolio at Land Securities London, said: “The last couple of decades has seen London’s food offering evolve, diversify and improve to now equal that of Tokyo, New York or Paris. With the world’s best talent arriving, and the continued strengthening of our domestic talents, London now acts as a smorgasbord of culinary delights. Nova will be a central location that brings all of this together in a fun, fresh setting. The brands and dining concepts already confirmed to be opening in 2016 are places we know Londoners want to eat and spend time in, and there’s more to come. Nova, Victoria will be a true destination in the heart of London, and a place we’re proud to be creating.”
