Self Architects and White Design have been appointed as designer of a unique, upscale eating and food retail experience on the Greenwich Peninsula.
The MARKET TABLE in New London will offer 2,000 products across 11 different areas in the flagship 4,000 sq. ft. store next to the 02 Arena.
Alongside a 56-seat restaurant, there will be four different prepared food counters, a bespoke Espresso programme, fresh baked products, a delicatessen, specially sourced seasonal produce and exclusive pantry items from in and around the UK and Ireland.
MARKET TABLE Owner Operator John Barton has 30 years retail and hospitality experience and was previously Chief Operating Officer for iconic New York food brand DEAN & DELUCA.
“MARKET TABLE will bring to the New London development an exciting hospitality and food shopping experience not yet seen in London. We want to create an environment that excites all the senses and, working closely with the English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish Food Boards, we will champion seasonal produce with a menu that celebrates our food heritage whilst also embracing international cuisines.”
Self Architects and White Design, who have a growing hospitality and retail portfolio, will design the showcase MARKET TABLE store which will serve the growing New London office and residential populations as well as domestic and international visitors.
This first MARKET TABLE will also offer books, gifts and flowers and is expected to open next summer with plans for a further 10 stores across London by 2023.
Kevin Unwin, Managing Director of Self Architects, said:
“We are delighted to have been appointed as designer to this exciting new brand. It’s always rewarding to develop designs from the concept stage with a client who has such a clear passion and vision. The brief is all about making sure the food is always the show that visually brings to life the MARKET TABLE experience and we are confident that our designs in this fantastic location at the heart of New London will do just that.”
