According to BigHospitality's sister publication MCA Insight the 125-cover Aldgate East unit, the brand’s fifth in the Capital, replaces Copita del Mercado and will open in October.
Located in Wentworth Street, the 1,993 sq ft restaurant will serve ribs, wings, hotdogs, pulled pork, chicken strips and sides, as well as shakes, beer and wine.
The group, which is led by Christian Arden, also operates sites in Clapham, Stratford in East London, Twickenham, Camden, and Leeds.
Arden said: “We are delighted with this new site in this up-and-coming part of London. We are sure Aldgate East will become a buzzing destination alongside its neighbour, Shoreditch.”
David Rawlinson, founder & agency director at Restaurant Property, which facilitated the deal added: “Aldgate East is an exciting and changing part of London, and I’m sure local residents and office workers will be pleased to have a Chicago Rib Shack on their doorstep.”
The lease is an assignment and runs until 2029.
