Restaurant group D&D London has unveiled its highest ever Christmas revenues with like-for-likes up 5% on 2012.
Meanwhile, the London restaurant core revenues (excluding exceptional event revenues) were up by 7%, and thr group's City and Canary Wharf restaurants were 15% up.
Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D London, said: "For a number of years we have been reporting positive Christmas trading driven by strong sales in our West End and Kensington and Chelsea restaurants. During these years the City has been pretty flat. This December has seen a dramatic reversal of that trend.
"We have had a fabulous Christmas in the City and in Canary Wharf. We have traded well not only in our more recently opened venues such as Old Bengal Warehouse and South Place Hotel, but also in our more established restaurants such as Coq d'Argent, Plateau and Paternoster Chop House. After a number of years of relatively austere Decembers, it's good to see the City bouncing back."
