Another outpost of the well-known Brindisa chain is opening in London. The Spanish food importer and restaurant chain is launching a tapas venue at Battersea Power Station in autumn.
There will be a dedicated cheese bar (some of which will be aged in-house) and charcuterie bar, and customers can eat in or take away. The hot food offering will be similar to Brindisa’s other locations, however, with Spanish home-cooking a focal point, as well as seasonal tapas and small plates. A daily changing menu will also feature.
Expect dishes such as braised chorizo on chickpea and lemon hummus, goat’s curd-stuffed figs, and smoked Ortiz tuna with candied beetroot. Chefs will also host supper clubs and monthly tastings. Wine, as ever, will be an important aspect.
Brindisa is joining a host of other restaurants at Battersea Power Station
That said, Battersea Power Station is a hive of activity at present. Its regeneration is now firing on all cylinders, and Brindisa Tapas will be joining, among others, Francesco Mazzei’s Fiume and a Wright Brothers site.
A calmer, less hectic space?
Monika Linton, founder and owner of Brindisa Kitchens, said: “Tapas Brindisa Battersea unites all that we love about the Brindisa family and our food – here, by the water’s edge, we can bring together our producers, our chefs and our team to give you an experience where Spain and its rich culinary heritage are ever present and in harmony with London.”
Helen Carr, head of F&B and leisure leasing at Battersea Power Station, added: “The plans for the new restaurant sound fantastic and I can’t wait for Monika and her team of talented chefs to bring a taste of Spanish life to the banks of the River Thames.”
