D&D London has revealed the name of its new venture at the revamped Royal Festival Hall at London's South Bank, which opens in June.
The Skylon marks the first restaurant opening since the company changed its name from Conran Restaurants following a senior management buyout in September last year.
Following a £2m revamp, the restaurant, which was formerly called the People's Palace, will be a 240-cover eatery including a restaurant, brasserie and central bar area.
It will serve a menu of modern European food with British influences under the direction of executive chef Helena Poulakka, who was previously executive chef at the Fifth Floor Restaurant at London's Harvey Nichols store.
Its look, developed by design and architecture consultancy Conran & Partners, will reflect the original 1950s style of the property with the restaurant featuring an "elegant yet informal setting" and the brasserie comprising a bar and grill.
