Padella Pasta, the fresh pasta queue magnet that has taken Borough Market by storm, could open a new pasta restaurant in Shoreditch. A licensing application posted to Twitter today and first reported by The Caterer suggests that Padella will open all day from 8a.m. to 11p.m. at 1 Phipp Street, which is currently occupied by a recently opened co-working office space, Workspace The Frames.
Padella is the sister restaurant of Trullo, the essential London restaurant and Islington neighbourhood standout opened by Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda in June 2010. Padella opened off Borough Market in 2016, and has set the template for a wave of restaurant openings specialising in affordable fresh pasta that changes regularly, makes the most of seasonal ingredients, is easy to turn into Instagram fodder, an almost always commands queues.
It will join a rapidly growing clique of restaurants in the area, including Oklava, Leroy, St Leonard’s, Passione Vino, and Red Rooster.
The restaurant’s operation in a co-working space is similar to Stevie Parle’s Palatino in Clerkenwell, and likely offers a reduction on standard rental agreements in the area.
Eater has contacted the owners of Padella for comment.
