As one bakery closes, another restaurant opens

East Dulwich and Peckham Rye bread lovers were dismayed when Brick House Bread announced it would not reopen either of its bakeries after Christmas. Founders Fergus and Sharmin Jackson said at the time that a “crippling rent review” was the cause in East Dulwich, with the Peckham Rye landlord not renewing their lease / evicting them. That landlord is Levan, the Peckham bistro run by chef Nicholas Balfe, and it’s already making moves on the space that supplied that restaurant, and its Brixton sibling Salon, with bread for several years. Planning documents submitted to Southwark Council reveal a space called Larry’s, with the slogan “open days, open nights” and seating for 22. Eater has contacted a Levan spokesperson for more details.
