Mari Vanna, the Ginza Project-owned upscale Russian restaurant concept, is to make its UK debut this September in London’s Knightsbridge. The restaurant, which will offer food focused on modern “babushka” style cooking, will join sister sites in Moscow, St Petersburg and New York. Mari Vanna is co-owned by Vadim Lapin & Dmitry Sergeyev, founders of restaurant and hospitality holding company Ginza Project, and Luca Del Bono, the co-founder of lifestyle group Quintessentially. Ginza Project is one of the most largest players in the world of Russian dining, operating in excess of 100 restaurants.
