Three south London-based restaurants to open at Elephant Park

It follows the launch of the leasing of 16 food and beverage units at the site.

Three new south London-based restaurants, Beza, Tasty Jerk and Pot & Rice will open on Sayer Street at Elephant Park, as part of the £2.3bn regeneration project being delivered by Lendlease and Southwark Council.

Aiming to become a fully-vegan eatery, traditional Ethiopian restaurant Beza will serve a range of dishes, including the national food teff injera.

Meanwhile, Tasty Jerk will provide classic Caribbean dishes. The restaurant said in a statement that it will use locally-sourced produce from East Street market alongside imported ingredients.

Beza and Tasty Jerk were previous tenants at Artworks Elephant, Lendlease's pop-up retail park at Elephant Park.

Rounding up the three is Pan Asian cuisine operator Pot & Rice which will offer rice pot selections, rice pastry (cheung fun) mochi, yuzu cheesecake, fruit tea and milk tea.

“Elephant Park is a great location for our rice pot concept and we are delighted to sit alongside such an interesting and diverse array of restaurants and retailers,” Pot & Rice restaurant manager Chris Liang said.

The news follows the launch of the leasing of the next phase of Elephant Park, which comprises 16 food and beverage units totalling 37,000 sqft.

International property and infrastructure group Lendlease says it seeks to attract more local independent businesses and established London brands to create a new food destination in London’s Zone 1.

“Lendlease is continuing to provide spaces through which local start-ups and growing operators can build successful businesses,” Lendlease head of retail Guy Thomas said.
