D&D London, the Des Gunewardena-led group, is set join the list of operators opening at the Battersea Power Station development.

It is thought that D&D is set to again team up with Francesco Mazzei to launch a restaurant at the scheme.

The company recently reopened its Almeida restaurant in Islington as a traditional Italian trattoria in partnership with chef Mazzei under the name Radici.

In late 2015, D&D reopened its Sartoria site in Savile Row with Mazzei at the helm.

D&D London owns and operates restaurants in London, Leeds, Paris, New York and Tokyo and the 80-bedroom South Place Hotel in London.

Earlier this year, D&D revealed it would begin expanding its Bluebird cafe business, which has operated from a site in Chelsea for more than 20 years. The company has signed a deal with property developer Stanhope to take a prime site in the former BBC Television Centre in west London. New York has been mooted as the destination for the concept’s first international opening.
