Indian small plates concept Kricket has launched its second London site, in Brixton. The 40-cover restaurant has opened in one of the railway arches in Atlantic Road, with a standalone bar in one arch.
The opening sees Kricket founders Rik Campbell and chef Will Bowlby return to their roots – having launched the concept at Pop Brixton in 2015.
They said: “It has always been our intention to return to the neighbourhood where our journey first began and we couldn’t be more excited. Brixton has remained such a huge part of Kricket’s identity and we’ve been searching for a permanent site ever since we moved out of Pop Brixton. The Brixton community were our first customers and embraced our approach to Indian cooking from the start.”
Kricket’s first permanent restaurant opened in Soho in January 2017, while a third site for the concept will open at Television Centre, the former home of the BBC, in White City this summer. Last week Bowlby published his first cookbook, featuring more than 80 of the brand’s most-popular dishes.
