The next wave of operators to launch at the Battersea Power Station development have been unveiled.
Seafood and oyster specialists Wright Brothers will lead the line-up launching in the scheme’s Circus West Village this summer.
They will be joined by Mother, an Italian pizza restaurant from Copenhagen’s meatpacking district Kødbye; Dodd’s Gin, from the London Distillery Company; Ben’s Canteen – the currently two-strong Antipodean all-day café concept and Duckroad, a sister restaurant to Soho’s Ducksoup and Rawduck in London Fields.
The operators join those already signed up to the scheme, including Darwin & Wallace and Pedler Cru.
Rob Tincknell, chief executive of the Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “Creating a new cultural and food quarter for London as part of the £9 billion redevelopment of Battersea is an exciting challenge. We are striving to deliver the best mix of independent, authentic and fun British and international operators - an extension of the existing local community, a place for people to visit, be entertained, try something new, work and live. On behalf of the project’s Malaysian shareholders, I am delighted to welcome all of these businesses to Battersea Power Station and I cannot wait to try out the first restaurants and cafes here this summer.”
Mother centres around organic sourdough pizzas made with seawater, with products ranging from mozzarella to wine and beer made in-house. It will be the first international outpost for the Danish concept.
The Wright Brothers site is described as a “new riverside seafood restaurant” with ingredients sourced from the group’s wholesale business in Borough market.
Dodd’s is building a dedicated gin distillery to create “a world-class multi-sensory tour attraction focused on craftsmanship, cocktails and gin”
Ben’s Canteen, which currently operates in Battersea and Earlsfield, specialises in burgers, wine and brunch.
Duckroad promises a “regularly changing menu is a celebration of seasonal, simple cooking”.
