It seems safe to say that Arcade will become a favourite destination for Londoners who want to dine somewhere special.
One part of Arcade will be dubbed "the Loft". Inside this mezzanine kitchen space, diners can visit Tou, a katsu and rice box outlet run by Ta Ta. Given that Ta Ta Eatery has operated successfully elsewhere in London, this new outlet should bea favourite.
Those who enjoy the spice of Mexican cuisine will appreciate Pastorcito, a restaurant designed to capture the feel and the flavour of living in Mexico City. Also serving up Latin dishes is Casita do Frango, a scaled-down version of Southwark Street's Casa do Frango, which will deal in piri piri chicken.
Many Shoreditch residents have spoken well of the Turkish restaurant Oklava, and so fans of Turkey's cuisine will be pleased to know that a new branch of Oklava will be among the eateries at Arcade Food Theatre. Rounding off the world tour is a branch of Chotto by Chotto Matte, a restaurant specialising in a hybrid of Japanese and Peruvian food; this restaurant is already active in Soho, where it has won great acclaim.
Steak-lovers of London have long admired the Flat Iron chain, which deals in sumptuous steaks of all varieties. Arcade Food Theatre will play host to the Flat Iron Workshop, where new and innovative types of steak will be dished up to intrigued customers. Finally, Arcade will have a coffee an bakery counter operated by Popham's Bakery, a company known for selling inventive and aesthetically-pleasing pastries in Islington. Between them, Flat Iron Workshop and Popham's Bakery will demonstrate Arcade's commitment to innovation and experimentation.
Only time will tell how Arcade Food Theatre will grow and evolve as time passes, but thanks to such excellent outlets as Pastorcito, Oklava and more, its initial incarnation is set to become a popular destination.
