La Tagliata, an Italian start up restaurant, is to replace an Indian restaurant popular with City workers, The Gulshan, close to Liverpool Street Station.

The 1,088sq ft ground floor restaurant and basement at 11 Sandy’s Row, E1 which previously served contemporary Indian food is to be the launch pad for a new syndicate of private restaurant investors.

The new Italian restaurant will open on 14 July. It has taken an assignment of the existing lease which expires in July 2018 at a rent of £50,000 per year.

Sally French who brokered the deal for Restaurant Property said: “The area between Liverpool Street and Brick Lane in the City was traditionally regarded as a bit off pitch, but it has always had an eclectic mix of great little restaurants that have been favourites with City workers and local residents. Recent regeneration means it has become much more sought after by bigger operators now too.”
