Caravan to open in Fitzrovia with take away concept

The New Zealand trio behind Caravan Restaurants, Miles Kirby, Laura Harper-Hinton and Chris Ammermann, have today announced they will open a new restaurant in Fitzrovia, located in the stunning ex BBC Radio 1 recording headquarters.

The new site, close to both Great Portland Street and Oxford Circus stations will bring Caravan’s signature well-travelled, all day dining and craft coffee to Fitzrovia and will be home to their brand new Caravan-To-Go concept.

In a nod to the building’s history, the basement will house a ‘record room’ accommodating private dining and parties with the option to hire the space with a dedicated bartender and a sideboard of treats. Upstairs, a large bar weaves throughout three defined dining rooms, making it the perfect destination for post-work drinks and dining all day.

‘Caravan-To-Go’ is the exciting new expansion of the takeout offer that the team from Caravan are already known for at their restaurants and coffee bars. Caravan’s new in-house sourdough bakery and croissanterie, based at their soon-to-open flagship coffee roastery just north of King’s Cross, will create a weekly changing series of patisserie. While nourishing bowls, freshly made sandwiches and healthy salads will be served at lunch.

The offer will include:
~ Rye IPA coffee cream croissant
~ Twice baked golden milk crème brulee croissant
~ ‘Kimchi’ and ‘Tamarind & Date’ morning buns
~ Coddled egg, miso sweet potato mash, chive butter pots
~ Thick cut Dingley Dell bacon or pork sausage, fried egg, cheddar, herbed mayo brioche sandwich
~ Breakfast Bahn mi, eggs, smoked bacon, pickles, chilli mayonnaise

Plus craft coffee on espresso & filter, with particular emphasis on super fresh, beautifully sourced filter brews (including ‘brew for £2 – roasters choice on rotation’).

Technology will also be carefully considered at the site, to create a faster, friendlier customer experience, all Caravan To Go transactions will be completely cashless.

Caravan’s globally-inspired menus will include a completely fresh selection of dishes inspired by the team’s travels, building on the healthy, plant fuelled and fermented offerings they are known for ‘food well travelled’.

New offerings on the All-Day menu will include:
