Gleize plans London restaurants

French entrepreneur Jean Pierre Gleize opens his first UK restaurant and bar in London today (15 December). Stephane Ale, Gleize's UK business partner, said they aimed to build up a chain of restaurants in and around the capital.

The new venture - which incorporates a Champagne, vodka and wine bar - is called Les Coulisses after one of Gleize's Toulouse restaurants. It will serve French speciality dishes at lunchtime and tapas during the evening.

It occupies the site of the former Eatons Wine Bar in Broadgate Circle near Liverpool Street station.

Gleize's new UK company, 1718, bought the property from Compass through property agent Christie + Co for an undisclosed sum.
Gleize owns a dozen restaurants in Toulouse and the French Riviera.
