Casa do Frango expands into former Native site

Published 29 July 2020

The successful Portuguese restaurant (and CODE team favourite) Casa do Frango is extending downstairs in its Borough Market site.

Launching originally in August 2018, Casa do Frango has inhabited the first floor of the building, which seats more than 100 covers in its conservatory style dining room.

Now, The Piri-Piri chicken specialist has taken over the ground floor space of its 32 Southwark Street site, previously occupied by Ivan Tisdall Downes and Imogen Davis’ restauratant Native. The expansion introduces an additional 40 covers to the restaurant.

The ground floor interiors have been designed by A-NRD studios, creating a Mediterranean aesthetic with natural woods, shrubbery and open plan dining. The space will also be available for private hire.

“It’s a great space and we are fortunate that the opportunity to move in has come at this time” says co-founder Marco Mendes. “The expansion will make it considerably easier to achieve a safe and socially distanced experience for guests, whilst we believe that bringing part of the restaurant down to street level will have a positive impact on walk-in trade.”

The expansion follows the opening of Casa do Frango’s Shoreditch location earlier this year. To find out more or to reserve a table, visit the website here
