Asian fusion restaurant group Inamo is thought to be in line to acquire the site of Cafe des Amis in London's Covent Garden.
Cafe des Amis, which has been popular with theatregoers since it opened around 30 years ago, is currently closed and is thought to be on the market.
It would be the third restaurant for Inamo if a deal were to go ahead. Its original restaurant is on Wardour Street in Soho, and its second, Inamo St James, is on Lower Regent Street.
The restaurant business is known for its interactive ordering system, which projects an illustrated food and drinks menu onto diners' table surface.
However, Inamo director Noel Hunwick declined to reveal whether his business was close to acquiring the Cafe des Amis site.
In a statement, Hunwick said: "Unfortunately we're not in a position at this time to discuss what is commercially sensitive information, but I can certainly confirm that inamo is looking to expand and we're interested in acquiring sites."
No-one from Cafe des Amis was available to comment.
