Love this! The architectural practice AL_A is opening a seafood restaurant where all seafood comes from tins. It opens on Monday 15th September, at 7 Upper James Street (just up from Golden Square in Soho, near Beak Street), to be open for 6 months. The photos on the Instagram page here look fantastic! No bookings - just turn up.
"AL_A presents tincan, a six month restaurant project in Soho.
While designing a new cultural centre in Lisbon, the team from architectural practice AL_A discovered a former fishing tackle shop which was transformed into a tiny, vibrant restaurant serving only tinned seafood. What started as lunch quickly became an idea, and subsequently a new project: to bring the culture and sensibility of an architect's studio to a restaurant serving the best tinned fish in the world.
Tincan elevates the humble tin to an object of desire in an environment designed by AL_A. Everything in the restaurant from light fittings and wall displays, to tables and chairs, will be created specifically for the space.
The idea is very compelling: no kitchen, the finest tinned seafood delicacies, super healthy, and great graphics with the tin as the hero.
