Rex Restaurant Associates, the group headed by entrepreneurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, will open their latest restaurant venture, The Delaunay, next month in London’s Aldwych. The new venture from the team behind the Wolseley, which is named after the luxury French car maker, will be an all-day café-restaurant “inspired by the grand cafés of Europe” and will be located on the corner of Drury Lane and The Aldwych. The site will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while morning coffee and afternoon tea will also be served seven days a week, alongside a take-out section with a local delivery service. The company is also developing a top-end 80-bedroom hotel in Mayfair, which is situated on Balderton Street, between Oxford Street and Grosvenor Square, that they hope to open in 2013. The Art Deco building, which was built in 1926 and most recently let to Avis, the car rental firm, will house a 125-cover restaurant and 65-seat bar.
