Fried chicken brand Sides is set to open its first high street location in Dalston on Thursday 26 October, after its success in other locations across London.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe brand signed a 15 to 20-year lease for the 2,000 sq ft space and will serve \u201call the classic Sides menu items\u201d that have been available in the brand\u2019s Boxpark and Harrow locations.\u00a0\r\n\r\nThe new opening marks an exciting new chapter after the use of dark kitchens showed that there was huge demand for Sides across the country through food delivery apps.\u00a0\r\n\r\nThe Dalston branch of sides will seat approximately 40 covers, as well as create 30 jobs for the local area.\u00a0\r\n\r\nThe Sidemen, the founders of Sides, are among the most high-profile internet personalities in the UK since starting in 2013. Owing to this, the restaurant business has already amassed a huge following on social media.\r\n\r\nRobin Mehta, CEO of Sides, said: \u201cOpening the Dalston location will be a proud moment for all of us. As Sides continues to grow we are really proud of all the effort that has gone into the space, the menu, and the food itself. The Sidemen are doing things properly and there's no doubt this is a brand putting food quality right at the heart of the offering.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\u201cFreshly cooked chicken, double coated, crispy and full of flavour - this is properly good food, prepared with care. People will come in for the hype, but they'll come back for the food."
