Four new brands sign to Seven Dials Market
Kerb's Seven Dials Market will officially reopen on 17 May, with the addition of four new independent food brands.
The new operators include Filipino-inspired Bong Bong’s Manila Kanteen, an operator which launched in 2014 on Hoxton Street, which will serve its crispy pata pancakes; Bad Boy Pizza Society (pictured below), serving with New York-style pizzas either by the slice or in 22” servings; a twist on classic fish cookery from Bait; and Smoke & Bones, serving up a Texas-style barbecue.
To complement the refreshed line-up, Seven Dials Market’s bar will also reopen on 17 May, with offerings from East London Liquor Company and Gipsy Hill Brewing Company, as well as Kerb lager, craft beers, exclusive house pours, craft beers, and cocktails.
Seven Dials Market will resume normal trading hours, with a new online booking system, spacious seating across the two floors, and a dedicated table allocation for walk-ins.
Thirty new al fresco dining covers have also been added.
“It is great to be working with a team like Kerb who are passionate about the new and exciting street food concepts here in London, and we are thrilled we can provide the platform for these emerging operators to showcase their diverse concepts and international flavours," says Julia Wilkinson, restaurant director at Shaftesbury, which announced the news.
"The much-anticipated re-opening of indoor hospitality provides the perfect timing for Kerb to introduce four new traders, and we look forward to seeing the Seven Dials Market community spring back to life among our wider dining offering.”
Petra Barran, founder of Kerb and Seven Dials Market, adds: “Seven Dials Market is all about adventures in food and drink and we’re excited to be serving even more of this up with the arrival of some new kids to the place. Bong Bong’s, Bait, Smoke & Bones and Bad Boy Pizza Society each come with something juicy to add to the mix – all independent, all looking to grow and all looking forward to cooking for a whole new audience. The place is going to be buzzing.”
Seven Dials is also continuing its timed road closures and will maintain additional outdoor seating throughout the village, along with a one-way foot-traffic system in Neal’s Yard and additional cyclist parking spaces.
