Chef James Cochran is set to open a new restaurant at Angel Central in Islington later this summer.
The 2,111 sq ft eponymous restaurant will offer modern British cuisine with locally-sourced and foraged produce. The menu will include his signature dish of Caribbean jerk chicken, as a nod to his heritage.
Designed by an in-house team, the interior will feature an open-plan kitchen, cocktail and wine bar, DJ booth and stage table, with room for approximately 60 covers inside and 20 on the terrace. The restaurant will be Cochran's second following the opening of his debut site James Cochran EC3 near London Liverpool Street last year.
BNP Paribas and CBRE represented Angel Central.
Cochran said: "This prime north London location is perfect for the next stage of our expansion. Angel Central offers a diverse and vibrant mix of retail and leisure and we are thrilled to share our food with the people of Islington."
Laura Wilson-Brown, director at CBRE Global Investors, said: "The signing of a talented chef like James Cochran cements our vision of creating a great retail and dining destination that complements the vibrancy, dynamism and quality of Islington. We have no doubt his superb food will be greatly received by locals and shoppers alike."
