The Sethi family, which is behind Michelin-starred Indian restaurants Gymkhana and Trishna, plus the Hoppers and BAO concepts, plans to open a new restaurant and bar concept at the Bloomberg Place development in the City of London, MCA understands.
It is thought that the new venture, which will feature at the Bloomberg Arcade part of the development, has the working title of Brigadiers and will be a colonial-style restaurant with a number of bar areas.
The new venture is set to join Caravan, Vinoteca and Homeslice in opening at the scheme, which is due to open later this year.
Legendary chef Pierre Koffmann, who opened La Tante Claire in Chelsea in 1977, where he became one of Britain’s first three-Michelin-star chefs, is also believed to be in talks to open a new restaurant at the development on Queen Victoria Street.
Once complete, the new Bloomberg UK headquarters will comprise two buildings connected by glazed bridges across a retail arcade that bisects the site.
It will provide approximately 500,000sq ft of sustainable office space.
As revealed by MCA earlier this year, Hoppers, the concept from the Sethi family inspired by the roadside food of Southern India and Sri Lanka, is set to open a second site in London’s West End.
MCA understands that the company, which opened its first site under the concept in Soho’s Frith Street in October 2015, is hoping to open a unit at 75 Wigmore Street later this year.
