French restaurant group Aubaine to open in Wimbledon Village

French restaurant and pâtisserie operator Aubaine is to open its sixth site in London, with the launch of a new restaurant in Wimbledon Village.

The group, which also has two restaurants in Manchester, has taken over the former Common Room site on Wimbledon High Street.

It will be the first suburban location for Aubaine, which is led by Hani Nakkash and already operates five sites in the centre of London - in Brompton Cross, Regent Street, Kensington, Selfridges and Mayfair.

Aubaine offers and all-day menu of French cuisine, with a Mediterranean influence in urban restaurant surroundings. Meanwhile, its pâtisserie side offers breads, viennoiserie, madeleines, macarons, mille-feuilles, financiers, ficelle and fougasse.

Davis Coffer Lyons advised Aubaine. The vendor, Jamies London, was advised by Cedar Dean Gilmarc.

Josh Leon, associate director at Davis Coffer Lyons' agency team, said: "Aubaine wanted to minimise risk with their first high-street site outside their classy central London heartland, yet Wimbledon Village has a lot in common with the stylish and chic areas of Kensington, Chelsea and Marylebone. Aubaine's relaxed, all-day and relatively refined offer should definitely appeal to the locals."
