Premium casual South-American operator Fazenda will open its first restaurant in central London in spring 2023 as part of its wider expansion plan, which will see a number of their restaurants rolled out across the city over the next few years.
Located in 100 Bishopsgate within the financial district, the newest addition to the Fazenda portfolio will be the largest of the group's restaurants, taking over 10,000 sq ft/950 square metres.
Home to leading legal and financial institutions, 100 Bishopsgate is situated amongst an eclectic mix of iconic buildings, land marks and high-quality restaurants.
Managing director and co-founder Tomás Maunier said 'London has been on our radar for some time, so we are extremely pleased to have secured our ideal site in such a thriving location. We can't wait to bring Fazenda to the people of London.'
Terence Langley, CEO, commented 'These past two years have been turbulent for everyone; with hospitality being hit particularly hard. Our team have been nothing short of resilient and inspiring during this period, and we can't thank them enough. We feel very fortunate to be in a position to be able to continue growing as a business and elevating the brand to the next level with our entrance into the capital.'
Dan Scanlon, EVP Brookfield Properties, commented ‘We are looking forward to partnering with Fazenda for their first location in London at 100 Bishopsgate. The design and vision of the restaurant is complementary to the tower, and is an exciting addition to the dining offers in the city.
With existing sites in Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham, the opening next spring will see a sixth restaurant join the group, who offer high-end rodizio dining that celebrates gaúcho traditions from both Argentina and Brazil.
