Spanish restaurant group Brindisa to head to Richmond
Tapas Brindisa Richmond opens in the city of southwest London in October, expanding Brindisa’s portfolio of tapas restaurants to six.
The restaurant on the banks of the Thames will have 150 seats inside as well as a private bodega room with space for an additional 60 seats on the terrace. It will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with a menu created for Richmond that includes many of Brindisa’s classics. It will also serve a Spanish-style Sunday menu and have an expanded bar menu for its “pub-style” Spanish drinking area.
The bodega room will host a selection of Spanish cheeses, Ibérico ham and rare single estate wines, and fill the room with guests who can book it for tastings and private dinners.
“As a passionate Londoner outdoor enthusiast, I am delighted to bring Brindisa to one of the most beautiful and picturesque areas of the Thames and Richmonds,” says co-founder Monika Linton. “River walks, park walks, and island walks can all be enjoyed before and after some delicious Spanish dishes in this beautifully situated location any time of the year.”
The interiors of the restaurant include bright handcrafted tiles, pastel colors and a focus on upcycling materials, with the main dining room being furnished with booths and an open kitchen with counter seating.
“After our successful riverside project at Brindisa Battersea Power Station, we kept our eyes on another riverside restaurant for a while. While the hospitality industry continues to be challenging, this Richmond location offers our property a great opportunity to continue our timely growth and take our talented teams and executives another solid step forward, ”said Co-Founder Ratnesh Bagdai.
“Being familiar with the area, I’m really excited to be doing business in Richmond and offering the neighborhood all-day premium casuals to capture the essence of what the industry is about – fun and socializing, when and how often you like. ”
