Peruvian restaurant brand Andina has secured a large site on Commercial Street close to its original home on Shoreditch’s Redchurch Street.

Leisure property agency Shelley Sandzer secured the 3,000 sq ft two-floor restaurant, which is expected to open this summer and is billed as a new flagship for the brand. 

Andina is part of the Ceviche restaurant group, and is described as a modern all-day dining concept, focused on providing healthy food and drink inspired by the Peruvian Andes.

Classic ceviche dishes of hake and sea bass will feature at Andina’s new site, alongside authentic Peruvian staples such as seafood chowder – known as chupe – and corn cakes.

The basement will take the form of a South American bar, serving snacks alongside cocktails such as margaritas, caipirinhas, and daquiris, and the Peruvian national drink, pisco sour.

“Having to leave our home at Redchurch Street last year was incredibly difficult for us, but we are delighted to be able to start a new chapter for Andina on Commercial Street,” says Ceviche restaurant group managing director Raquel de Oliveira. 

“Given the fantastic local following we have developed over the past seven years we wanted to stay close to our original site, and we are grateful that Shelley Sandzer has found this unit for us just a stone’s throw away, on one of London’s most buzzing streets.”

Earlier this year it was announced that the JKS Restaurants-owned Bao had taken Andina’s inaugural site.  

Andina was founded by Martin Morales in 2013 and a second site opened in Notting Hill in 2018, which has now also closed. 

Ceviche went into administration in 2019 but was rescued by Rosa’s Thai Cafe founders Alex and Saiphin Moore.
