Trio of chains confirm restaurants at highly-anticipated food quarter

Franco Manca

A further three dining destinations have been announced for Nova, Victoria next year, adding yet more culinary talent to what will be London’s newest food quarter.

Barbecoa, Franco Manca and Daisy Green are the new names gearing up to join concepts from the likes of Jason Atherton, D&D London and Will Ricker at Nova when it opens in September 2016.

Nova is an architecturally striking development that developers say will create a vibrant new link between Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace, which in turn leads onto the Royal Parks.

The 897,000 sq ft development will house world-class office space, high quality apartments and a cluster of inventive and exciting restaurants, eateries, bars and rotating food experiences.

Jamie Oliver’s acclaimed barbecue steakhouse, Barbecoa, will launch its second site at Nova. The restaurant, which is a celebration of traditional fire-based cooking and incredible ingredients, will boast a large standalone bar, a hidden garden and a stunning dining room, complete with an open kitchen where guests can watch the chefs cooking on the Argentinian and Robata grills.

Franco Manca, the hugely popular mini-chain will be opening a pizzeria in Nova. It will bring its sourdough pizza, which cook in only 60 seconds, to the mix and feature an open kitchen that can serve 90 covers.

The team behind Daisy Green, meanwhile, will bring a new all-day offering to Nova. By day the restaurant will offer Londoners speciality coffee, big bold salads and meats alongside a bottomless Aussie brunch. In the evening the restaurant will create imaginative small plates and cheese, together with specialised wines, cocktails and local craft beers.

David Atcherley-Symes, retail leasing director, London Portfolio at Land Securities London, commented: “Earlier this year we announced restaurants from the likes of Jason Atherton, D&D London, Bone Daddies and Will Ricker would be coming to Nova, and now we’ve got another fantastic line up to join these chefs. Coming to London in 2016, the 18 eateries at Nova will offer a huge variety of cuisines and food concepts, making it a one stop destination for food lovers. We look forward to announcing the final brands to be taking space at Nova in the New Year.”
