Yet to be named, the 3,330 sq ft site will offer a premium casual, all day dining menu based on Andrew’s creative interpretation of classic Chinese dishes. Wong told BigHospitality that the new restaurant would be simpler than his Victoria flagship and offer a shorter menu.
It will be his first restaurant since launching A.Wong in 2012 and will open in partnership with White Rabbit Fund, which has supported Indian restaurant Kricket and Island Poke.
A.Wong was among 17 restaurants in the UK and Ireland awarded their first star in the 2018 Michelin Guide and is generally considered London’s most progressive Chinese restaurant.
“Once you win a star the important thing is to maintain that level,” says Wong. “Chinese food in London is constantly evolving so we need to keep trying new things.”
The covered pedestrian arcade’s line up includes Brigadiers – a new concept by Gymkhana and Hoppers operator JKS Restaurants – and new sites for Homeslice, Caravan, Vinoteca, Koya, Bleecker Burger and Ahi Poké. Further restaurants are to be announced in the coming weeks.
