The team behind the Smoking Goat, the Thai barbecue restaurant and bar in London’s Soho, is set to open a new venture in central London, MCA understands.

Super 8 Restaurants, which is led by Brian Hannon, the current director of food and restaurants at Selfridges and chef Ben Chapman, is understood to have secured the Cafe Rio site at 58 Brewer Street for a new venture that is believed to have the working title of Kiln.

Smoking Goat launched in Soho’s Denmark Street at the end of 2014.

Hannon was previously with Mitchells & Butlers for 16 years, leaving in 2011 as director of operations.
