Andina to relocate to Spitalfields

Peruvian restaurant Andina has secured a site in Spitalfields, via Shelley Sandzer, after seeking a property to relocate to from its original Redchurch Street venue.

Having first opened in 2013, Andina's new site will be located at 60-62 Commercial Street, not far from its former Shoreditch home (pictured).

Andina is part of the Ceviche restaurant group, and is a modern ‘picanteria’ – an all-day dining concept, focused on providing healthy food and drink inspired by the Peruvian Andes.

Classic ceviche dishes of hake and sea bass will feature at Andina’s new site, alongside authentic Peruvian staples such as seafood chowder – known as chupe – and corn cakes.

The 3,000 sq ft, two-floor restaurant on Commercial Street is a new flagship for the brand, which is set to launch in the summer with up to 80 covers on the ground floor when government guidelines allow for it to be fully open. 

The basement will take the form of a South American bar, serving snacks alongside cocktails such as margaritas, caipirinhas, and daquiris, and the Peruvian national drink, pisco sour.

“Having to leave our home at Redchurch Street last year was incredibly difficult for us, but we are delighted to be able to start a new chapter for Andina on Commercial Street," comments Raquel de Oliveira, managing director at Andina.

"Given the fantastic local following we have developed over the past seven years we wanted to stay close to our original site, and we are grateful that Shelley Sandzer has found this unit for us just a stone’s throw away, on one of London’s most buzzing streets.”
