Shaftesbury signs award-winning Sichuanese restaurant
JinLi, which won ‘Best in England’ at the Golden Chopsticks Awards in April 2018, has opened a second restaurant at Central Cross, named JinLi Chinatown. The new 4,300-sq ft restaurant has space for 150 covers and offers a menu of modern Sichuan dishes, mixing traditional Sichuanese cuisine with a creative twist.
Julia Wilkinson, head of group restaurant strategy at Shaftesbury, said: “JinLi Chinatown opening their second site within Chinatown London is a great achievement for the brand and makes us immensely proud as a landlord. For them to choose to continue their evolution within the destination, highlights Chinatown London as an iconic and authentic landmark that brands want to be a part of. This second restaurant from JinLi reflects their well-deserved success, and we look forward to working our way through the dishes on their menu.”
