Having scoffed a lot of their cheese at Taste of London (and we can confirm that it's really good), we're happy to report the imminent opening of a new Obika on Charlotte Street.
This is the third opening for the upmarket Italian chain in London. They already have sites in Canary Wharf and Kensington and the Charlotte Street opening will be swiftly followed by another one on Marlborough Street in October.
The Charlotte Street Obika, which opens its doors on Monday 2nd September, will feature a bar and seating area on the ground floor with room for 35 and a Mozzerella Bar downstairs with seating for 65, where the mozzarella will be displayed, prepared and served.
For local workers it's worth noting this is the first Obika in London to have a deli counter serving up takeaway lunches or dinners. And after work, there will be an Aperitivo period between 5-7pm where you can enjoy Mozzarella tasters and other small dishes with your glass of Prosecco or a Spritz.
Obika will open on 2 September 2013 at 11-13 Charlotte Street, London W1T 1RH. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday from 12 pm to 11 pm. Sundays from 12 pm to 10 pm.
