We've been waiting an age for Din Tai Fung to launch their Centre Point restaurant. So long, in fact, that they're getting ready to open another restaurant in the interim - this time in Selfridges.
The news broke in hospitality publication Propel and we've since had it confirmed to us by Selfridges themselves. Din Tai Fung will be taking over what was the Selfridges Kitchen on the fourth floor. Just how much space will be given over to the restaurant is still up in the air right now, but it's a more compact site than their huge Covent Garden space. Hopefully, they'll still have room for a section showcasing the chefs making their dumplings front and centre.
If you're as yet unfamiliar with Din Tai Fung, they were a huge hit when they opened their first restaurant in Covent Garden. They've an extensive Taiwanese menu, but the real draw are their xiao long bao or soup dumplings. And yes, those more than live up to the extensive hype around them. We'll have much more details about the menu at Selfridges closer to the launch.
That's not all that's coming from Selfridges though - they have plans for a Pizza Pilgrims restaurant too. We'll have more news on that soon.
