Clive Watson, co-founder of the Riding House Café, Village East and The Garrison, is to open a new site in London's Spitalfields market.
Located at the market's entrance on Brushfield Street, the restaurant will be set across two floors. It will take the place of the former Sweet Basil site.
Details of the new restaurant are yet to be revealed, but Ted Schama, joint partner at Shelley Sandzer, which secured the site, said: "Our client has a long-established record of success in the restaurant industry, reinventing areas in London with fresh and vibrant dining concepts. The acquisition of this prime site at Spitalfields is a key part of the repositioning and dining offer for the area.
"This location is unique, being within close proximity to the city yet also benefitting from a high residential population and tourist market. With Clive's experience and previous successes in the industry, we have no doubt his new project will ignite the Spitalfields dining offer."
