What they say:
From its humble beginnings in a Brixton shipping container, through to a Soho restaurant, Kricket has proved a roaring success with its Indian small plates. It's more good news from the brand as it's just announced its second permanent restaurant, this time in the reclaimed Television Centre in White City. Joining the likes of Patty & Bun and Homeslice, the new restaurant will be the largest yet with space for 140 diners, an outdoor terrace, open kitchen and cocktail bar.
What we say:
Drawing on their time spent in Mumbai, chefs Rik Campbell and Will Bowlby are onto a winner with their fusion of British ingredients and Indian flavours for Kricket's small plates menu. Expect much of the same with the second restaurant, with dishes such as cockle thoran with coconut and Keralan fried chicken accompanied by curry leaf mayonnaise. The cocktail bar will be creating the usual mix of Indian twists, with drinks such as Samphire Margarita, and Old Nargangi (made with bourbon, orange and marmalade).
