Recently we had been hearing two rumours - one that Claude Bosi of the recently closed Hibiscus was re-opening in South Kensington, and the second that Bibendum was about to land a big name chef. Now we discover that the two stories are actually related, as Claude Bosi at Bibendum is on the way.
Bibendum is, of course, the impressive Michelin Man adorned building in South Kensington, and Bosi will be running two parts of it. First, there's the seafood restaurant on the ground floor, while the oyster bar becomes a cocktail bar. Upstairs, the dining room is where the more formal Bosi experience will be at - so if you're after a continuation of Hibiscus, this is where to find it.
The restaurant is closing to prepare for Bosi in January 2017. We'll add more about the menu as soon as we get it.
Claude Bosi at Bibendum opens Spring 2017 at Michelin House, 81 Fulham Road, London SW3 6RD.
