MWB Group, the operator of the Malmaison and Hotel du Vin hotel chains, has mandated property advisors to find it sites in London for a new restaurant concept. The group, which in August unveiled plans to launch Bistro du Vin & Bar - a sister standalone restaurant to Hotel du Vin - has asked CWM to seek 4,000sq ft locations in affluent areas in London. The hotel group, which is led by Robert Cook, aims to establish four such eateries in London, before looking at other regions in the UK. The search will be spearheaded by CWM's Michael Webb. He said: "Landlords like this concept as it offers an all-day menu from business breakfasts and lunches to dinner. "This, and the design, make it stand out against the competition."
