The O2 is to diversify its catering offering with the arrival of three new restaurants, vegan restaurant chain By Chloe, Indian restaurant Scarlet, fried chicken specialists Thunderbird, Chinese chain Hai Di Lao, and Beer and Burger.
Traditionally the O2 has always featured major chains such as Nandos and Frankie and Benny’s, however the new restaurants represent a change in direction for the venue’s food offering.
O2 Arena director Marion Dillon said: “These latest additions bring an exciting food theatre to our existing food and beverage line-up.”
Chinese chain, Hai Di Lao has 310 sites worldwide and has become well-known for offering free massages and manicures while its customers wait for a table. The Chinese chain is set to open a 10,000 square foot outlet beneath the Trocadero.
Vegan chain, By Chloe, which is currently involved in a lawsuit with its founder over the sale of retail goods, runs two sites in Covent Garden and Tower Bridge.
