D&D London owns and operates over 30 premium restaurants in London, Leeds, Paris, New York and Istanbul. The majority of the restaurants are in Central London, many of which have become city institutions, such as Coq d’Argent in the City, Quaglino’s in Mayfair, the Bluebird in Chelsea and Plateau in Canary Wharf. Other high-profile sites include Skylon on London’s South Bank, the Old Bengal Warehouse near Liverpool Street, and Launceston Place.

D&D London has also diversified into hotels. In 2012 the group opened a 80 room boutique hotel, South Place, based in the City, which has been nominated for a number of awards including listing on Conde Nast’s 2013 “Hotlist” of the best new hotels in the world, and its restaurant Angler recently received a Michelin Star.
D&D London’s business model is to create high-quality premium restaurants, each trading under its own fascia, with its format driven by the unique characteristics of its concept and location targeting the mass affluent largely across central London and other global hubs.

Deal Information

The deal will enable the company to fund further domestic and international expansion as well as invest in and enhance its diverse portfolio of outlets, which includes some of London’s most iconic restaurants.
