SECOND SITE FOR DISHOOM


he team behind Dishoom in Covent Garden has announced it is to open a second site, in Shoreditch, in October this year. The space will include a bar, café, kitchen dining room and courtyard.


Dishoom pays homage to the Irani cafés that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay. Opened early last century by Persian immigrants, there were almost four hundred of these cafés at their peak in the 1960s. Now fewer than thirty remain.


Dishoom Shoreditch will show reverence for these old cafés through its design by Russell Sage Studio. The design team and Dishoom founders spent many days in the remaining cafés listening to the stories of the owners, seeking inspira- tion from the original designs, fixtures and fittings and trying to understand the eccentric personality of each café.


The space in Shoreditch will remain true to its existing architecture, but will act as a ‘stage set’ for the café, bar


and kitchen dining room. Outside, there will be a courtyard with tables and chairs leading to a bar, bakery and café with seating, and a kitchen dining room on the lower ground floor. The Dishoom kitchen in Shoreditch will be open all day from breakfast through to dinner serving head chef Naved Nasir’s menu, which takes its inspiration from the Irani cafes, Bombay street grills and food of south Bombay.
