Chopsticks at the ready: A £15m food hub is coming to Chinatown

Kitty Drake

Soho gets slicker all the time, but there’s still something charmingly untouched about Chinatown. Well, all that’s about to change with the launch of Central Cross – a 48,000 sq ft food and retail development due to launch late this spring. Set at the Eastern gateway to Chinatown, Central Cross will feature seven new restaurants promising a mix of new Chinese and East Asian cuisines. Three of those restaurants will have outside seating – a first for Chinatown – and there are even plans to pedestrianise Newport Place. Dumplings in the sun, anyone? 

Central Cross is due to open in late Spring 2017.
