Lina Stores, the iconic green-and-white Italian deli turned pasta restaurant, is heading south west to set up shop in Clapham. Starting life as a deli in Soho way back in 1944 and becoming a beloved institution, Lina Stores has been on the expansion train over the last few years, opening a fresh pasta restaurant on Greek Street just around the corner from the shop back in 2018 and then a massive deli and restaurant in King’s Cross the following year, and most recently, an international outpost in Tokyo. Now site number three for London is in the works.
The Clapham branch of Lina Stores, which will include both a restaurant and a shop, will be taking over the sites where Robin Gill’s The Dairy (which has since relocated and rebranded itself in Bermondsey) and the neighbouring small plates spot Counter Culture were, which both closed during the pandemic. That’s all the info we’ve got so far, so watch this space for more.
