Italian restaurant group Carluccio's will open its first outlet in a UK hotel next month.
The 5,000 sq ft restaurant and food shop will launch on the ground floor of the 304-bedroom London Marriott Regents Park hotel. It will leased and managed by Carluccio's.
With its own entrance on Adelaide Road, the 200-cover restaurant will feature an aperitivo and espresso bar, outdoor terrace, retail area and deli.
Neil Wickers, chief executive at Carluccio's, said: "This is our first venture with Marriott and we are extremely excited to be opening our first Carluccio's in a hotel with this forward-thinking group. Our all-day trading format is particularly suited to a hotel operation where breakfast and impromptu dining are an integral part of the hotel guest offer."
Carluccio's currently operates 95 restaurants in the UK, alongside one grab-and-go outlet, Via Carluccio's, which opened last month on London's Tottenham Court Road. There are also 21 Carluccio's restaurants worldwide in Ireland, the UAE, Qatar, Turkey and the USA.
Around ten openings are forecast this year, but there are currently no plans for more hotel restaurants.
