Casa do Frango has inhabited the first floor of the building, which seats just over 100 covers, since 2018.
The new ground floor interiors have been designed by A-NRD studios and reflect the colonial Mediterranean aesthetic of Casa do Frango’s conservatory-style first floor dining room, with natural woods, shrubbery and open plan dining.
The ground floor space will also be available for private hire.
“It’s a great space and we are fortunate that the opportunity to move in has come at this time," says Casa do Frango co-founder Marco Mendes.
"The expansion will make it considerably easier to achieve a safe and socially distanced experience for guests, whilst we believe that bringing part of the restaurant down to street level will have a positive impact on walk-in trade.”
Launched early this year, Casa do Frango's Shoreditch sibling of the same name has also expanded recently, creating a 100-cover outdoor terrace on King Johns Court.
