A cluster of new businesses are on the way at the eastern end of Lavender Hill. The new Co-op supermarket, which we’ve talked about before, is now well advanced, with refrigeration equipment all installed and most of the signage in place – but no news on an opening date yet.
A Vitenamese restaurant called Bui Vien is opening at 33 Lavender Hill, a premises which has been through three different recent incarnations as a Turkish grill. A lot of effort has gone in to the fit out in recent weeks, and Bui Vien’s facebook page is live (albeit not very populated yet).
Former wood oven pizzeria Made in South is reopening as Pizzeria Pellone – again plenty of fitting out in the last few weeks. We’re not sure if it’s the same business as the generally well-rated Pizzeria Pellones in Croydon and Dulwich – though the colour scheme of the new sign does look similar.
Finally, two doors up from Bui Vien, a mystery restaurant is under construction at the former Maki Sushi. It looks smart – but as yet no news on what it will be…
