The O2 is to offer a range of new restaurants as the London venue seeks to diversify its catering options.

The Catering Today news website reports that vegan restaurant chain By Chloe will open a branch at the multi-purpose arena, as will Chinese hot pot chain Hai Di Lao.

Other chains set for a presence at The O2 include Beer + Burger, fish specialist Hook, Mexican chain Benito’s Hat, Indian chain Scarlet, and Thunderbird, which specialises in fried chicken.

The restaurants will join more established chains such as Harvester, ASK Italian, Frankie & Benny’s and Nando’s. The announcement of the new restaurant comes after last year’s opening of the Icon Outlet development at The O2.

Marion Dillon, leasing director for Icon Outlet and The O2, said: “These latest additions bring an exciting food theatre to our existing food and beverage line-up at The O2, and together with the retail offer from ICON Outlet create an unrivalled and trend-led destination for our customers.

“Located just minutes from central London, the destination places an emphasis on customer experience, with brands deliberately chosen that will appeal to visitors in pursuit of engaging and inspiring retail and dining offers.”

The additions take the total number of bars and restaurants at The O2 to 34.
