Restaurateur Richard Caring has acquired a site in London's prestigious Berkeley Square for an as-yet-unnamed restaurant project.
Caring's Caprice Holdings, which owns Le Caprice, The Ivy and Scott's restaurants, secured an 8,000 sq ft site at 4-6 Berkeley Square in W1, with the help of advisor Trowers & Hamlins.
Trowers & Hamlins previously acted for Caring on the site acquisition Balthazar in London's Covent Garden last year. Since 2010 it has also helped acquire the Mount Street Deli, 34 in Grosvenor Square, as well as advising on the extension of the fish and seafood restaurant J Sheekey, and the development, establishment and subsequent transfer to the Soho House Group of Little House private members club at 12 Curzon Street.
It also advises Caprice Holdings and its sister company, The Birley Group, on the on-going management of its restaurant and club assets, including Annabel's, The Ivy Club, The George, Harry's Bar, and Bam Bou.
