Benito’s Hat, the London-based restaurant chain, has secured a further two sites, including the first for a new street food kiosk format at Liverpool Street Station, M&C Report has learnt.

The company will launch its first-ever street food pod, which will be located outside the Broadgate entrance of Liverpool Street Station, in January.

This will be followed a month later by the opening of a 2,000sq ft site on Market Square, Bromley, taking the group’s estate to eight sites.

Open from 7am until midnight, seven days a week, the Liverpool Street Stationpod will serve a pared back menu of breakfast, lunch and late night dishes including all-day tacos and burritos as well as seeing the launch of a brand new torta. There will be 15 to 20 covers outside the kiosk.   

The Bromley restaurant will be part of the newly developed North Village area. The single story restaurant will have seating for 60 guests inside and 24 outside.

The focus of the evening environment, that has been such a successful part of Benito’s Central London locations, will be the large, copper, communal table that transforms to a sleek bar after dark. The Bromley location will be serving a full menu of Benito’s freshly made burritos, tacos and salads together with cocktails, beer and wine at an average spend of £10 per head.

Ben Fordham, managing director of Benito’s Hat, said: “We’re so pleased to be launching these two new and exciting sites. We’re looking forward to getting back to our street food roots and feeding commuters at Liverpool Street Station by offering a fun and accessible all-day menu. It allows us to simplify things but also gives us the freedom to experiment with some new ideas as well. We’re also delighted to launch our first venture south of the river, it’s an area we’ve wanted to explore for a long time and are thrilled to be bringing our brand to a whole new audience.”

The group will launch “#RescueUrResaca” - a special morning after pop-up in Farringdon tomorrow.

#RescueUrResaca will serve up the “ultimate in hangover cures such as bursting Breakfast Burritos, El Juarez Butties and spicy Huevos Rancheros”. It will run every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 27 November to 20 December, with a donation for every breakfast dish sold going to Action against Hunger.

The group is backed by Calculus Capital, the UK-based private equity investor.
