Brazilian-Japanese restaurant Temakinho is set to reopen both its Tower Bridge and Old Compton Street venues this month after welcoming two new partners to its group.
Both Pete Warden, hospitality director at project development group LXA and Liam Norval, CEO of marketing agency, Posh Cockney have joined the team to help “drive its success”.
Temakinho launched in Italy in 2012 and currently has over 16 restaurants across Europe. The brand originally opened at 10 Old Compton Street in 2016, before adding a site at Tower Bridge to its list of venues in 2019.
The reopening of its London venues follows a “period of uncertainty for the group” – with Temakinho forced to shut its Old Compton Street completely during the lockdown period.
The Tower Bridge site will be opening on 21 May and the Old Compton Street venue will reopen for inside dining from 17 May.
Warden said: “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Temakinho and driving this great brand to success in London. The team are working hard to get the sites ready to reopen and are looking forward to welcoming new and existing guests for their favourite sushi and cocktails.”
Linda Maroli, co-founder of Temakinho, added: “I am very happy that Temakinho is reopening in London. I am excited to be working with new partners who are so involved in the hospitality and entertainment industry in London.
“The brand needs people who understand the customers that will be coming through the doors and I am sure that the Temakinho Tower Bridge and Temakinho Soho will be very successful.”
