Extension and redesign for restaurant Dishoom

Bombay café-themed restaurant Dishoom is to open an extended and redesigned branch in London’s Covent Garden.

The restaurant, which will be celebrating its tenth anniversary, is being extended as part of a wider £8m refurbishment of St Martin’s Courtyard by Longmartin Properties, a joint venture between Shaftesbury and The Mercers’ Company. It is due to open next year.

Macaulay Sinclair has been appointed to design the new space, having designed branches of Dishoom in King’s Cross, Carnaby, Kensington, Edinburgh and Manchester.

St Martin’s Courtyard has been redesigned by architect Brimelow McSweeney, in a scheme that will introduce a terrace colonnade-style dining area and new restaurant space.

“We are entering a very exciting period for St Martin’s Courtyard. Ten years on Dishoom remains a much-loved eatery and its expansion will not only mark a new beginning for the restaurant, but also the courtyard itself,” says Charles Owen, portfolio executive at Shaftesbury.

“The timely investment for St Martin’s Courtyard will deliver an even more inviting and engaging destination, combining new brands and a new look with the high-performing existing offer to create one of the most appealing areas in London’s West End and in readiness of the new Elizabeth Line and the anticipated increase in footfall to the Covent Garden area.”
