Brindisa to launch deli-bar concept in Brixton
Brindisa is set to open a Catalan-inspired deli-bar, featuring a simple menu and a pared down selection of its Spanish food range, in South London.
The specialist Spanish wholesaler and retailer’s new Food Rooms concept will be unveiled this autumn when the outlet opens under two railway arches on Atlantic Road in Brixton.
Descirbed by the company as a “distillery of Brindisa”, the Food Rooms will will differ from Brindisa’s shop in Borough Market and its four restaurants across London.
It will retail cheeses, charcuterie, fresh Iberico meat and rotisserie chickens as well as fresh produce from Barcelona but customers will also be able to sit down and try these ingredients with a glass of wine in store.
The menu is based on a typical Catalan Llesqueria, which serves dishes such as toasted bread topped with cheese and cured ham.
These eateries were a favourite of Brindisa founder Monika Linton (pictured) when she lived in Barcelona during the 1980s.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to place these crafted foods centre stage in such a pure and simple way – a slice of toasted bread is the perfect partner,” said Linton.
