Italian restaurant Figo and East London bakery Signorelli have signed to International Quarter London (IQL) development in Stratford.

The £2.4bn joint venture development between Lendlease and LCR, has already signed up Tonkotsu and Pret a Manger to the scheme.

It is the second site for both Signorelli, which opened in the East Village in Stratford three years ago and Figo, which is an expansion from Bella Vita in Hackney’s Broadway Market.

Guy Thomas, head of retail at Lendlease, said: “As IQL continues to grow, we are constantly shaping its retail offer to meet the needs of our residents, commercial tenants and the wider local community. The addition of popular local operators such as Signorelli and Figo offering artisanal produce, alongside national brands, showcase Lendlease’s long-term commitment to creating diverse destinations that establish a sense of community and place.”

David Joy, chief executive of LCR, said: “The arrival of Figo and Signorelli will provide an exciting boost for IQL’s food and beverage offer. Those who live, work and shop in Stratford will be able to sample the diverse and flavoursome food offering, which is reflective of East London’s quirky character.”

Alberto Rosmini, head baker and owner of Signorelli, said: “We joined the Stratford adventure three years ago and our business has since gone from strength to strength with support from the landlords Lendlease and LCR. We are keen to continue our growth within this fast developing area, and are privileged to bring our ‘made-in-E20’ artisan products to tenants such as TfL, FCA and Unicef.”

Tony Manconi, founder of Figo, added: “IQL provides a unique and lively local landscape in the heart of East London, making it the perfect location for us to launch our new concept where we can successfully grow our customer base and reach. As landlords, Lendlease and LCR have supported our journey, and we’re pleased to announce we’ll be part of this new and inclusive dining and leisure space.”
