Parisian restaurant group, Big Mamma, are to open an Italian trattoria in London’s Shoreditch early next year.
The group currently runs La Felicitá, Pink Mamma, and six other businesses in Paris, with its new Shoreditch restaurant following a similar blueprint. The new restaurant will feature 160-covers and will be styled to reflect the island of Capri in the 1970s.
Big Mamma bosses, Victor Lugger and Tigrane Seydoux, said: “We hate ‘faux-old’ and we like the feeling that from the day we open, it feels like it’s always been there.
“We are moving to London because the city is an absolute dream for us,” the two added in a statement. “Now that we have built a team in Paris we feel we can cross the channel. It may sound silly to talk about fate, but that’s what we feel is happening here, to have found this great site.”
