Andrew Macleod is opening his third and largest Emilia’s Crafted Pasta restaurant this autumn in the increasingly busy Wood Wharf, the new neighbourhood in Canary Wharf.
Situated on the ground floor of 10 George Street overlooking the water, the flagship restaurant of the Emilia’s family will welcome up to 100 diners – 70 inside and 30 alfresco.
“Emilia’s Wood Wharf will have its own evolved identity while continuing the tradition of combining the friendly homeliness of an open Italian kitchen with warm, rustic interiors,” said the team.
It went on: “After 15 fraught months navigating the pandemic Emilia’s is taking this bold step to strengthen its position as London’s leading fresh pasta brand having remained resilient during the toughest times to hit restaurants in living memory.”
Macleod said: “I’m very excited that we’re continuing our mission to bring hand-crafted pasta just like Nonna would have made to more and more people, and this time in one of London’s most exciting developments in a beautiful setting surrounded by green spaces and water.
“Comforting fresh pasta should be affordable for everyone to enjoy on a regular basis and we look forward to being the leaders in growing this category of restaurants.”
Stuart Fyfe, MD of retail leasing for the Canary Wharf Group said: “Emilia’s passion for pasta and sustainable ethos fits perfectly with our vision for Wood Wharf, offering the best of independent eateries which will be welcomed by residents, office workers and visitors alike.
“They are a great addition to the growing new neighbourhood of Wood Wharf, and we look forward to welcoming them to the Estate.”
