As it reaches its 10th anniversary, Dishoom is going back to the beginning, with a big change to its original Covent Garden restaurant. The smallest of the group, it's about to get a lot bigger as they've taken over the space left behind by the now-closed Jamie's Italian next door.
This should more or less double the size of the restaurant, so expect something pretty ambitious when things are complete. They're teaming up with Macaulay Sinclair (who have designed most of their other restaurants) and taking design trips to India for inspiration. Their other restaurants have a story behind them. so expect Covent Garden to have something similar when complete too.
But just because the restaurant is bigger, don't expect those queues to be gone. They've been there right from the beginning (we recall seeing Jay Rayner in one ahead of us almost 10 years ago) and we expect they'll be bigger than ever when they come back fresh.
Details of the closure and reopening dates are TBC, but we'll let you know as soon as we do.
