Cote, the French brasserie concept, has acquired the former Vineet Bhatia Urban Turban restaurant in Westbourne Grove and upon opening it will be their 18th restaurant. Bhatia, chef-proprietor of the Michelin-starred Rasoi, opened Urban Turban in 2007 with a view to rolling out the concept of Indian street food. Cote will invest £850,000 in refurbishing the 160-seat restaurant and will reopen it in mid-October. The new site forms part of the group's expansion plans to grow to 22 restaurants by the end of this year and follows outlets in London's Ealing, Highgate and St Paul's, which will open throughout September. Cote has taken a £150,000 per annum 15 year lease.
