For those foodie Londoners who are au-fait with the likes of Street Feast and KERB, there is something new on the horizon.
London Union, the street food market operator co-founded by Leon’s Henry Dimbleby and Street Feast’s Jonathan Downey, has secured a 10,000 sq ft site above the Crossrail station in Canary Wharf for its new Streetopia concept.
This all-day, all-week offering will operate similarly to Street Feast yet will be predominantly inside. The area will boast street food traders including Yum Bun, Bob’s Lobster and BBQ Lab as well as new burger and beef concept ‘Grindhouse’.
Open from 11am each day, the food stalls will sit alongside two giant bars where customers can choose their favourite tipple to enjoy alongside the wide selection of food.
Peter Courtney, Lunson Mitchenall, said: “London Union will be a fantastic addition to the catering and leisure offer at Canary Wharf and continue to expand the thriving evening economy. Streetopia will bring a point of difference and help drive footfall not only during the week but also at the weekends with something new for both office workers and local residents to enjoy as well as completely new customers to the Wharf.”
Lunson Mitchenall continues to act on behalf of Canary Wharf Group, finessing the retail and leisure offer at Canary Wharf. This is in addition to the latest signings including Coach, Tesla, Calvin Klein, Ole & Stein, Franco Manca and an upsize for Hugo Boss plus recent openings for Watchfinder and Shake Shack.
