Patty & Bun, the Joe Grossman-led group, is looking to further strengthen its presence in the capital, with an opening in Borough, MCA understands.

The company, which recently secured its first site outside the capital with an opening due in Brighton, is believed to have secured a site at 19 Borough High Street, with an opening set for next year subject to planning and licensing.

The group has taken on the former Piccolo Italian restaurant site, on the corner of Meeting House Lane and Ship Street in Brighton for its regional debut.

It currently operates eight sites in London plus a permanent residency at Swingers LDN.

The group is also set to open at the former BBC headquarters in Shepherd’s Bush and will be one of the operators to take space at the new opening in West Brompton from the team behind the Pergola on the Roof concept.

Its most recent opening was the ex-Book & Comic Exchange site in Pembridge Road near Notting Hill Gate station.

Last summer, it secured £2m in growth funding. New World Private Equity, which is led by Nigel Berger, led the growth funding round for the concept to aid its next stage of growth.
