The team behind Mayfair restaurants Bombay Bustle and Jamavar is opening a new Chinese spot in May.
The Chinese restaurant will be situated on Curzon Street, formerly home to Indian restaurants Marani and Matsya.
Details on the new venture are sparse, but we know the restaurant will have 85 covers and will be split across four floors.
And clearly Leela Group – which has impressed diners with Bombay Bustle and Jamavar, that’s for sure – has ambition – the lease for the site is 17 years, with an annual rent of £220,000.
David Rawlinson, founding director of Restaurant Property – which struck the deal, told The Caterer: “Mayfair continues to attract significant international interest.
“Despite a challenging 2019, there are grass roots signs of confidence returning to parts of the sector and premium prices starting to rise over 2020.”
