Eater has learnt that the Peruvian-inspired restaurant Pachamama, whose original site is on Thayer Street in Marylebone, will open a second site in Shoreditch.
Branded hoardings on the outside of the property at 73 Great Eastern Street say that the group, which was set up in October 2014 did so “with a mission to introduce exciting, diverse and playful dining concepts to the London restaurant scene.”
Design consultancy firm Two Times Elliot lists Pachamama Group as a client and indicates that the restaurant will be called Pachamama East. “We are currently working with restaurant group, Pachamama on a full brand refresh and full spatial creative for their new site on Great Eastern Street,” the site states. While jobs site Caterer.com lists a general manager position at the new address.
The original site which opened towards the end of 2014 was reviewed in January 2015 by the Times restaurant critic Giles Coren who, though distinctly unimpressed by both the room and the service, awarded the food a nine out of 10.
The group also opened Chicama, a sister site on the King’s Road in Chelsea in the summer of 2016.
The Great Eastern Street restaurant will mark the group’s first move east.
