Pop-up kitchen Smoke & Salt has been announced as the replacement for Kricket at Pop Brixton.
Operated by two former chefs from Notting Hill’s The Shed, Smoke & Salt will combine fine and casual dining, with a modern and seasonal cuisine using international flavours and techniques such as brining, curing, fermenting and smoking.
Kricket closes its doors on May 27, and will look for a permanent site in Brixton or elsewhere, with Smoke & Salt moving in at the beginning of June, with the official opening scheduled for later in the month.
Charlie Gent, marketing director at Pop Brixton, said: “We are so proud and excited to see our friends at Kricket all grown up and ready to move out.
“This is what Pop Brixton is all about, helping talented and ambitious people get their big ideas off the ground. We are only a temporary project, here to offer the space and support that small businesses need to grow and get ready for bigger and more permanent opportunities.”
“When Rik and Will joined us two years ago, they were first time entrepreneurs who had never run a restaurant, and just look at them now! For us, it’s great evidence that our model is working. Now we can’t wait to watch them take over the world, and are excited to welcome Smoke & Salt into the Pop family. We’ll sure they will be another great success story.”
