Three further restaurant operators, including one brand new concept, are set to open sites within the Elephant Park development in south London.

The three brands will join Japanese noodle bar concept Koi Ramen​ at the £2.3bn mixed-use regeneration project, which is being run in partnership between Southwark Council and property company Lendlease.

Two of the operators, Ethiopian restaurant Beza and Caribbean brand Tasty Jerk, previously had sites within Elephant and Castle’s now closed pop-up retail park Artworks Elephant.

For its new restaurant, Beza will be adapting its previous offering by positioning itself as a 100% vegan restaurant, while Tasty Jerk will serve traditional Caribbean dishes including ackee and saltfish; jerk chicken; and curried goat.

Newly established pan Asian concept Pot & Rice, meanwhile, will feature a menu that includes steamed rice noodles, mochi rice cakes, and yuzu cheesecake.

“The opportunity to open a restaurant at Elephant Park is one we could not miss,” says Beza founder Beza Ethio.

“East African food is not properly represented in the UK, but we know our delicious range of Ethiopian dishes will be a hit in this part of Southwark.”

Earlier this year it was announced that the anchor tenant at Elephant Park would be MM Factory​, a new concept from the team behind London food market Mercato Metropolitano that is due to launch this summer.

By the time it is complete, Elephant Park is expected to feature 16 food and beverage operators in total.
