Bill’s, the Richard Caring-backed chain, has secured a site in Woking, Surrey, as part of its nationwide expansion
There’s been a set of videos lately on Instagram that I can’t get out of my mind that I can’t unsee, so I have to write about it and share them with you. Like the earworm of an annoying song lodged in your brain that you grow to love or becomes a guilty pleasure at the very least. I am a self confessed Bill’s lover and love Bill himself in equal amounts. I pretty much moved to Brighton on the strength of Bill’s breakfasts back in the day and I dare say my wife would leave me for a Bill’s veggie breakfast. So, as a fanboy I follow what Bill’s is doing as one of the strongest brands in our sector and I have also had the pleasure of working on the Bill’s brand to help reposition it for the future.
East Coast Concepts, the Manchester-based restaurant and bar group, has been bought out of administration.
In usual times, an ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ approach to operating a business as successful and celebrated as Dishoom makes sense. But 2020 has been anything but usual, and despite its initial reluctance to drift from the carefully curated roll-out program that’s seen the Indian restaurant concept emerge as a well-established industry darling over the last ten years, in March the business announced it would be launching a collection and delivery option, for the very first time. It now boasts seven delivery-only kitchens, opening its latest in Brighton last week, and as co-founder Shamil Thakrar tells MCA, the business doesn’t intend to stop there.
Tomahawk restaurant group will open its debt restaurant in London this week.
M Restaurants, the Rare Restaurants-owned brand, has announced it plans to use robot waiters alongside staff at its two London sites upon reopening. Through December, M Threadneedle Street and M Victoria Street will make use of the robots – named Bailey and Sage – to serve champagne to customers, travelling between the bar and tables delivering flutes and bottles. The bots will also offer seasonal greetings, and have the option to display personalised messages to guests.
