Reubens, the West End’s only kosher restaurant, is to reopen after a buyer was found for the venue.
Reubens closed its doors in May, 46 years after opening, due to a family bereavement and the site was placed on the market with Davis Coffer Lyons.
It has been taken on by restaurateur Lee Landau, behind the S Group, which includes café chain SOYO, pizza and milkshake offering PIZAZA, Delicatessen in Hampstead and Pita in Golders Green.
Reubens will reopen following refurbishment. Jonathan Moradoff, director of agency and leasing at Davis Coffer Lyons, said: “Reubens had become a culinary institution in the Jewish community over many generations, as well as for tourists enjoying attractions in the area.
“Lee Landau already has a very highly regarded reputation in kosher cuisine which puts him in a fantastic position to capitalise on the following that Reubens has established over so many decades in London.”
Landau added: “We are thrilled to be giving Reubens another lease of life, while importantly maintaining the integrity of this well-loved institution.”
