Sourced Market this week became the first food business to open in the vast Nova restaurant-and-retail development opposite Victoria station.
A further 16 restaurants and pop-up kiosks are due to open from early next year in the lower floors of the £250million Land Securities development, which also contains offices and luxury flats. There will be outdoor seating for 700 people to encourage take-away grazing.
Jason Atherton is scheduled to open a “family Italian concept” and Jamie Oliver a Barbecoa steakhouse, while D&D will bring a Nordic restaurant. Chains represented include Franco Manca pizzas, Sticks ‘n’ Sushi, and Bone Daddies ramen bars.
Sourced Market, which has branches at St Pancras and Marylebone stations, stocks produce from small independent suppliers “to bring the concept of the farmers’ market to the convenience sector”.
Also opening before Christmas will be Timmy Green, providing all-day Australian-style dining from the team behind the Daisy Green/Beany Green mini-chain.
The other businesses named so far are Shack Shack; Railhouse Café (sibling of the Riding House Café); the Stoke House, an American carvery; Vagabond wine bar and shop; Greenwood (from the Botanist pub group); and Crosstown Doughnuts.
