Caprice Holdings is launching a new wine bar, deli and restaurant concept on Chelsea’s Sloane Street in collaboration with Cadogan Estates.
Sloane Street Deli will be similar to the group’s Mount Street Deli, with a wine bar, deli and 70-cover restaurant aimed at shoppers visiting the area’s premium boutiques.
The concept was developed by Caprice with Cadogan specifically for the location, and agreed at the same time as Harry’s Dolce Vita.
The forthcoming opening is part of Cadogan’s pipeline of eight restaurants, plus a number of a1 coffee shops.
These include Duke of York Restaurant, Durley House, and The Cadagan Arms on Kings Road, which have all been redeveloped ready to be let.
Cadogan chief executive Hugh Seaborn told MCA: “We look for people who can create really good restaurants, and Caprice are preeminent at that. They came up with the format, which we felt would be right for the location. Harry Dolce Vita is thriving I gather.
He added: “Getting the combination of food right makes Chelsea a more attractive place to live. People find emotional connection with the places they eat, and food has an important role to play in making that connection to people.
“We look for restaurants and cafes which are different to what we’ve got, so we widen the choice”, Seaborn says.
“Also we are looking for operators with pride in what they do, who can demonstrate provenance and integrity, and give Chelsea a point of difference. We don’t tend to go for chains, though we have well regarded restaurateurs like Bill Granger. Ideally we are looking for something original for the area.”
