Hani Nakkash plans all-day central London restaurant

26 October 2006

Hani Nakkash, the Lebanese businessman behind Aubaine and partner in L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, is to launch a new restaurant in central London.

Nakkash has taken a 2,000sq ft unit at 4 Heddon Street - formerly Turkish restaurant Raks - on a new 25-year lease at a rent of £82,500 per annum.

The eaterie, yet to be named, will be similar to the restaurant, café and boulangerie Aubaine, changing throughout the day from café, deli and pâtisserie to modern brasserie. All-day French cuisine will be on offer.

Leisure property specialist Davis Coffer Lyons acted on behalf of the Crown Estate to source a tenant for the unit, which already boasts a line-up that includes Momo, the Ice Bar and Living Room.
