Homeslice Wants a Piece of St. Christopher’s Place

The pizza chain joins Hoppers, Patty and Bun, and Bone Daddies in Marylebone

Pizza at Homeslice Pizza, which will open a new London restaurant in St. Christopher’s Place

Homeslice will open its sixth London restaurant in St. Christopher’s Place, on James Street. The pizza chain will join Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers, ramen bar Bone Daddies, Richard Caring’s Harry’s Bar, and burger chain Patty and Bun in expanding to the area.

Homeslice intends to move its head office to the four storey property, as reported by Big Hospitality; the opening is planned for early 2019, as the building on James Street is in need of significant renovations. The series of openings on St. Christopher’s Place — as in nearby Fitzrovia — is coming from operators with existing portfolios and the financial reserves to expand in such a high footfall location: a powerful consolidation, rather than a big-ticket first opening.

Homeslice said: “James Street and St. Christopher’s Place is really exciting to us, it’s somewhere we’ve always wanted a presence. We are working closely with the landlords on creating a space unique to Homeslice and the area.” The restaurant’s wood-fired pizzas — all clocking in at 20 inches, with toppings reminiscent of the combinations found on quite a few small plates — make it one of London’s essential pizzerias.
