Lebanese restaurant Bayroot is to double its operation, having operated in Camberwell for more than five years; while Ecuadorian brand Miko’s is set to relocate from Elephant & Castle shopping centre.
Elephant Park is a £2.3bn mixed-use regeneration project, which is being run in partnership between Southwark Council and property company Lendlease.
Bayroot’s menu will focus on traditional Lebanese mezze, alongside a selection of grilled meats and wraps.
Miko’s will specialise in Latin American cuisine, with the menu featuring an array of soups, rice, and seafood dishes.
“Having local businesses at Elephant Park has always been one of our key objectives,” says Guy Thomas, head of retail at Lendlease.
Other operators to open in Elephant Park include Japanese noodle bar concept Koi Ramen; and Caribbean restaurant Tasty Jerk.
Newly established pan Asian concept Pot & Rice, meanwhile, is set to launch later this month with a menu that includes steamed rice noodles, mochi rice cakes, and yuzu cheesecake.
“Elephant Park is quickly becoming a destination for world flavours, and our traditional Lebanese dishes will sit perfectly amongst the other restaurants here,” says Bayroot founder Yasser Elmoussa.
“We are already well-known in Elephant & Castle, and cannot wait to bring some Middle Eastern spice to the area.”
