Corbin & King’s new Soho seafood restaurant Manzi’s has been slated for a 2020 opening.
Jeremy King has said the restaurant, in Bateman’s Buildings, just off Soho Square, takes its name in tribute to the long-lamented Leicester Square restaurant of the same name.
The restaurant, which will be set over two floors with windows on both sides of the dining rooms, will have a nautical theme with King saying he wants it to be “fun and affordable”.
Early design images show banquette, table and bar seating in large light dining rooms with blue and white details.
Corbin & King operates the Wolseley, Colbert, Brasserie Zédel, the Delauney, Fischer’s, Bellanger and Soutine – all in London.
