London Bridge-based piri piri chicken specialist Casa do Frango has taken over the ground floor space that was once home to Native to gain an additional 40 covers.

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.
