Updated 18/1/19 with The Piadina Project opening date
What: W12 Studios
In a nutshell: A big new food court/bar for White City.
Summing it all up: The latest addition to the BBC studios redevelopment in White City, W12 studios is bringing a series of rotating kitchens and a big new bar to the area.
There's definitely something of a trend for a better class of food court in London at the moment - driven by places like Market Halls and with the arrival of an inside KERB later this year. No longer is the food court a thing to be avoided - but now it's a place where you can hang about all night. The next one to appear is W12 Studios, the latest addition to the White City redevelopment of the old BBC studios.
It's led by Rory Graham (who used to be part of the Kricket management team, who are also at White City) and they're partnering with Feast-it to bring in a rotating line-up of food and drink. There will be two kitchens in the space and they'll be regularly changing things, with confirmed people taking part including:
- Cue Point - barbecue from the previous Head Chef of Smokestak, Joshua Moroney
- Zoe's Ghana Kitchen - Zoe Adjonyoh brings her West African cuisine to West London
- The Piadana Project - thin Italian ‘Piadina’ flatbreads packed with fried chicken and other fillings such as crispy hash browns, pancetta, Italian soft cheeses and pesto mayo
Plus more to be announced soon.
There will be space for 450, live music and DJ sets and - of course - plenty of booze.
