The Cinnamon Collection announces it will launch Cinnamon Kitchen in the Grade II-listed Battersea Power Station late November, hot on the heels of the October opening of the brand’s second site in Oxford.
The 120-cover, 4,700 square foot restaurant, housed in a dramatic railway arch will include a large destination feature bar on the ground floor, an open-plan kitchen, a semiprivate chef’s table and a private mezzanine dining room, overlooking the restaurant, that seats an additional 20 diners. There will be an outdoor terrace with sweeping views of the Thames that seats 12. Drawing inspiration from the urban backdrop of the Power Station, the interiors feature stripped back décor with an industrial vibe – expect exposed brick walls, brass, timber and metal finishes as well as a muted palette of teal, ochre and grey.
Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea will open for brunch, lunch and dinner, serving modern-Indian cuisine. Dishes at the bar are inspired by spices and delicacies found on the Delhi Jaipur Pink City Express route. The restaurant will also be the first venue to offer food and alcohol delivery to residents in the immediate area. The bar operation will also be a key focus, with urban-inspired, spice-infused craft cocktails.
Vivek Singh comments: “We have consciously decided to open new restaurants in historic buildings and locations – The Cinnamon Club housed in the Grade II-listed Old Westminster Library, Cinnamon Kitchen City in the historic East India Trading Company spice warehouses, Cinnamon Kitchen launching in the culturally rich city of Oxford and we are now thrilled to be opening the third Cinnamon Kitchen in the iconic Battersea Power Station later this year. The Power Station was originally built in 1860 and has been closed for more than 25 years. We are excited to be a part of the urban regeneration taking place and look forward to extending the Cinnamon Kitchen’s brand reach south of the river.”
