New restaurants to launch in recently refurbished Old Spitalfields Market

The long-anticipated reopening of London’s Old Spitalfields Market​ heralds the launch of several new restaurants and food units, plus the return of a few firm favourites.

Having been closed since last year due to essential restoration work, this summer sees the return of some largely missed restaurants, starting with Square Pie in June, and the International Food Village in the North Eastern corner of the market later in the year.

A whole host of new restaurants are also being introduced to the site over the summer, including popular chains Wagamama, La Tasca, the Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Las Iguanas, which will take over a two-storey site and opens in July.

The refurbishment includes a range of glass cubes which overlook the market, and which will house several of the new businesses. These cubes will contain lighting displays built into the fabric of their building, and are already being dubbed as the ‘Spitalfield Aurora’.

So far, new restaurant Chop’d is already proving a massive success, with crowds of people already queuing out the door at lunchtimes. The next restaurant to arrive will be acclaimed pancake house Crepeaffaire, which opens its doors in mid June.

Despite the long and drawn out building works, Spitalfields has recently won the Time Out Shopping Award for Best Fashion Market.
