Big news dropped last night in one of restaurateur Jeremy King's irregular emails. In between updating folk on the progress of Corbin & King's next restaurant Soutine, he casually dropped into the conversation that they were also working on a huge new place.
There is still more exciting news as there are other projects afoot for Corbin & King and we are awaiting the outcome of our planning application for a rather unusual site in Soho – large, light and a sibling companion for Brasserie Zédel in terms of size and affordability – I will certainly let you know more when I have certainty myself. Until then please allow me to remain a little superstitious about not revealing details in full just yet.
Of course, this got everyone wondering just where on earth this mahoosive new site was. Some folk wondered if it was Mash, others pointed to the development directly underneath Soho Square. But both industry site MCA and Eater managed to track down planning papers lodged by the company relating to a section of Soho running along Bateman's Buildings and Greek Street. That shows they're hoping to open a three floored restaurant with loads of outside seating and a private dining room. The developer added that Corbin & King were "looking to start up a new brand within Soho and operate a high quality and good value fish restaurant at this site".
We'll bring you more as we find it.
