Trendy Soho House members' club owner to open Tooting chicken shop
The entrepreneur behind the trendy Soho House clubs, hotels and restaurants is opening a venue in Tooting.
Nick Jones, founder of Soho House, has announced Chicken Shop will open in a former cafe, in Tooting High Street, on October 30.
It follows the success of the first Chicken Shop which opened in Kentish Town a year ago.
Despite it's name, the restaurant will not be a fried chicken takeaway, but will serve rotisserie chicken in a 1950s-style diner.
Only free-range chickens will be used, sourced from a farm in Norfolk.
Diners will also be able to order takeaways and picnics from the restaurant.
It will be the second Soho House venue located south of the river, with Mr Jones' enterprise including Babington House Hotel, a beach club in Miami and Cecconi's Mayfair.
Mr Jones, who is married to presenter Kirsty Young, said: "I love South London, having lived in Wandsworth for a number of years.
"It is and has always been a diverse and thriving community, which is what makes it so great.
"We look forward to putting down roots in Tooting, and being part of the neighbourhood."
The restaurant will be joining several new places to eat which have opened in Tooting in the past two years including Tota, Meat and Shake and cafe Fisher and Co.
