London restaurants set to serve up new sites as lockdown restrictions lift
Two restaurants have announced that they are opening new sites in London as the hospitality industry begins to recover from the pandemic.
Wing Wing, a Korean crispy chicken specialist, has opened a new flagship restaurant at Charing Cross Road, covering 2,500 sq ft and three floors.
Also opening a new site in the town is Chinatown Bakery, which has been located in the neighbourhood since 2012, and is expanding with a new 400 sq ft bakery on Wardour Street.
Both restaurants were signed by real estate investment trust Shaftesbury.
Julia Wilkinson, restaurant director at Shaftesbury, commented: “Chinatown London is the most authentic portrayal of Far East dining in Europe, so it is vital we continue to provide both the home comforts and new trends revered by our communities.
“Adding Chinatown Bakery and Wing Wing does just this – helping a much-loved brand built on tradition extend its presence at the destination, while introducing something new that reflects modern East and Southeast Asian foodie culture.”
Simon Tang, co-owner of Chinatown Bakery, added: “We are very proud of the name we have created for ourselves at Chinatown Bakery, and to announce that we will be opening a second location is a great demonstration of our work.
“We attribute our success to not only our brilliant selection of sweet and savoury goods, but also to being a part of the exceptional hospitality community within Chinatown London, there really is no comparison in location.”
DCL and Shelley Sandzer represented Chinatown London for Wing Wing. HGR and CDG Leisure acted for Chinatown London on Chinatown Bakery.
