Acclaimed chef Tom Aikens’ restaurant and deli chain has really gone up a gear this year in a bid to scale its operation.
Birmingham is set to be its first port of call as part of this strategy, while its international operations are poised to get a boost from the launch of a branch at Dubai’s new Riverland amusement park, where it will offer express food options.
Tom’s Kitchen sites are renowned for offering all-day dining, seven days a week, and serving locally-sourced ingredients and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal environment.
The British theme even extends to the catering equipment it uses. At its restaurant in Chelsea, for instance, it has deployed a British-made Synergy grill SG900 as part of its prime cooking set-up. One of the big highlights of this year has been the opening of a branch at the iconic HMS Belfast in conjunction with Levy Restaurants.
The quayside venue will include a 58-cover rooftop bar as well as a 46-seat deli. “The opportunity to create a Tom’s Kitchen Deli and Bar in such an extraordinary space is a real privilege,” says Tom.
