Canteen Pop-up Restaurant in Covent Garden Piazza
The small London chain Canteen is opening a 6 month pop-up restaurant in the central piazza in Covent Garden. I really like Canteen, from the Mad Men style furnishings to the Sunspel-made uniforms, to the amazingly nice shepherd's pie, to the fact that you can go in in the morning and just order a cup of tea, so I hope that this is a success.
"The restaurant will host a series of guest chef evenings and events in the run up to Christmas, the details of which will be announced nearer the time.
Serving an all-day modern British menu the restaurant comes as part of <a href="/content/search?SearchText=Canteen&FromNews">Canteen</a>’s ambition to operate from smaller A1 units in a bid to continue expansion plans.
Patrick Clayton-Malone, co-founder of Canteen along with business partner Dominic Lake, said the pair wanted to take advantage of a high footfall space without ‘the usual technical restraints and more flexibility’.
“Covent Garden wanted to do something interesting in a space they had empty for a short period of time and we decided to put together a project where we host various events in the run up to Christmas. We’ve done quite a few temporary pop-ups before so we just thought we’d do it.”"
