Brindisa will open its sixth site in October. Located in a “prime location on the banks of the River Thames”, Tapas Brindisa Richmond will be the group’s first venture out of the city.
We’re told “the result will be a welcoming neighbourhood hangout with a large terrace overlooking the river”, and the restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Inside will be bright handmade tiling, pastel colours and a focus on conscious materials to create the feeling of an authentic Spanish tapas bar. The main dining room will feature intimate booths, while an open kitchen with counter seating will be available for those who like to watch the chefs in action.
In the warmer months, guests will be able to enjoy the 60-cover terrace, and there will also be a ‘conservatory’ style dining area filled with plenty of natural light. It’s dog-friendly, too. It all sounds very Richmond.
Guests can expect the usual Brindisa classics on the menu, coupled with a Spanish-style Sunday feasting feature, and an extended bar menu for those more eager to drink.
Co-founder Monika Linton said: “As a super keen outdoorsy Londoner, I am thrilled to be able to bring Brindisa to one of the most enjoyable and picturesque areas of the River Thames and Richmond. River walks, park walks, island walks can be enjoyed any time of year, before and after some delicious Spanish dishes at this beautifully positioned site.”
Co-founder Ratnesh Bagdai added: “After our successful riverside venture at Brindisa Battersea Power Station, we have for a while set our eyes on another riverside eatery.
“While the hospitality industry remains challenging, this Richmond site offers our estate a great opportunity to continue our timely well-paced growth and provides another solid step forward for our talented teams and leaders.
“Being familiar with the area I am very excited to operate in Richmond and to offer the neighbourhood an all-day, any-day premium casual offer to capture the essence of what the industry is all about….enjoyment and socialising whenever and how often you like.”
