Kricket, the modern Indian restaurant group, which began life as a pop-up in a shipping container at Pop Brixton, has announced that it will make a permanent return to the south London neighbourhood later this year. It will be owners Rik Campbell and Will Bowlby’s third restaurant in the city.

The pair, as reported by MCA, have acquired the site, at 41 – 43 Atlantic Road, occupied by Brindisa — the Spanish restaurant and food importer — who opened the Food Rooms bar and deli there in 2014.

Kricket, which is backed by the White Rabbit Fund, moved from Brixton to a first permanent restaurant in Soho last year, and will are confirmed for a second location a Television Centre, the former home of the BBC, in July. That will be a 140-cover restaurant and is significantly bigger and “more complex” than the site on Denman Street in Soho.

Campbell and Bowlby have also created a new delivery company called Namma by Kricket, which recently launched in partnership with Deliveroo Editions in Whitechapel, east London.

Brindisa, which was established in 2004, continues to operate restaurants in Soho, Picadilly, Borough, Shoreditch and South Kensington; it has food shops in Balham and Borough Market.
