Seven Dials Market

 

Street food specialists KERB have taken on the entire space at St Thomas Neal's Warehouse, turning the former banana and cucumber warehouse into a food hall called Seven Dials Market. Spread across two floors, the market houses 25 traders in one massive 22,000 square foot food hall with a London centric food and drink bookshop run by travel experts Stanfords, a florist, live entertainment stage and fresh produce to buy too. The market itself has the aptly named cucumber alley where you can stock up on deli supplies like pies and fresh bread. Among the first traders at the opening in September 2019 are Pick & Cheese, a restaurant from The Cheese Bar where small batch cheeses are dispatched to diners on a conveyor belt, vegan Mexican-Californian street food by Club Mexicana, donuts by Big Shot Coffee & Donuts, Monty's Deli Reuben sandwiches and seafood by Claw. Drop by Nanban for noodles, YIN for Chinese comfort food or enjoy INK's fritto misto platter. Truffle is serving up a special 7 Dials Burger, Yum Bun have created the Bao-Wow - sausage in a soft bao bun - Strozapretti is a pasta restaurant from the team behind Franco Manca and El Pollote serve Venezuelan fried chicken. Those with a sweet tooth can try Wheelcake Island, known for their hot Taiwanese pancake pillows, or ex-Locanda Locatelli pastry chef duo, Hackney Gelato's small batch ice cream.

Arcade Food Theatre

Arcade Food Theatre

On the ground floor of the Centre Point building, Arcade is a modern food hall featuring seven independent kitchens, a coffee and bakery counter, three bars, an outdoor terrace and 'The Loft', an incubation space for some of the more experimental food concepts. First up is Tou by Ta Ta Eatery, serving just-so Japanese katsu sandwiches and rice bowls and open until late. Back down on the ground floor you'll find an outlet of Lina Stores, Chotto by Japanese-Peruvian restaurant Chotto Matte, Mexican offering Pastorcito from the Harts Group (Barrafina, El Pastor) and Portuguese cooking at Casita Do Frango, sister to the popular Casa do Frango. You can also choose from Oklava, the follow up to Selin Kiazim and Laura Christie's Shoreditch restaurant, Kyseri, the Flat Iron Workshop for steak and perfect pastries from Pophams - the third branch of the artisan bakery which began in Islington. These seven present the initial offering when Arcade opened in July 2019 but the food suppliers change every six months. The whole thing is centred around a bar and there's communal seating at long wooden tables and window side bar stools as well as an on-site bakery and an outdoor terrace.

Taking the old Edwardian underground station at Fulham Broadway and turning it into a 200-seat food hall, Market Hall Fulham is a genius idea. Carefully choosing the food traders who go in there is the secret to its success. Yes, it's a lovely space - a glass ceiling lets natural daylight flood in and many original features remain - but it's the quality of the food that will keep you coming back. With ten traders at the launch edition, you can choose from healthy Hawaiian salads from Ahi Poke or dirty burgers from Butchies. You're spoilt for choice with the first west London Yard Sale Pizza, Indian street food at Calcutta Canteen, Thai bites at Thima by Farang, Fanny's kebabs, Hot Box, Soft Serve Society ice cream, Press Coffee and Claude's Deli. Cocktails are served from the old 1880 ticket counter and beers are by interesting brewers like Cloudwater, Wild Beer Co and Siren Craft Brew. Fulham is the first of three Market Halls sites with Market Hall Victoria where Pacha (opened in summer 2018) and - the giant flagship - Market Halls West End due to launch in the former BHS building.

Harrods - The Dining Hall

 

The Harrods Food Hall is ostentatious to the core. Mouth-wateringly exotic, the ground floor space combines four food halls including the roastery and bake hall, the fresh market hall - filled with in-season fruit and vegetables, sustainably sourced fish and quality-assured meat - chocolate and confectionery as well as the dining hall. Designed by David Collins Studio, this space, reopened in 2019 following a two-year renovation, includes six of the store's 20 restaurants - the fish bar, the grill, the pasta bar, sushi bar, Kama by Vineet (from Michelin star Indian chef Vineet Bhatia) and, centre stage, the wine bar which houses over 100 wines by the glass. Using the first class produce sold in-store, the restaurants feature dishes such as Faroe Islands smoked salmon, catch of the day, seasonal game and fresh pasta hand-made in-house daily.

Early in 2018 they brought the fantastic Market Hall food court to the former London Underground ticket office in Fulham. In November 2018 Market Halls are doing the same for Victoria. Market Hall Victoria gathers 12 food outlets under one roof at Terminus Place where Pacha used to be - so now you can eat street food where people used to dance to house music. Before that, the building housed a 1909 shopping arcade and this communal eating spot makes the most of the building's Edwardian features. Three floors house eleven kitchens, a coffee shop, and three bars selling independent British-made beers, spirits and soft drinks. Choose from BaoziInn, Monty's Deli, Flank, Squirrel and fish and chips by Kerbisher & Malt. They're joined by new ventures from some of London's biggest hitters including Koya Ko by Koya, Gopal's Corner by Roti King, Super Tacos from Breddos, Nonna Tonda from Fat Tony's and bunshop from Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram, the duo behind The Marksman. Joining these kitchens are popular faces from Market Hall Fulham - Fanny's Kebabs and Press Coffee. There's seating for 400 over three floors and, to top it all, a roof terrace from spring 2019.
