Mark Hix to open second Hixter restaurant

Mark Hix is to open a second Hixter restaurant, this time south of the river in London.

The new Hixter, at Great Guildford Street on Bankside, will open in summer this year.

It follows the success of the first Hixter, which opened in Devonshire Square near Liverpool Street station in December last year.

Like the original restaurant, the new site will build on the concept of serving a whole roast chicken or steaks of 250g or 300g to share. A chicken with chips and salad serving two to three people is set to cost £25, with steaks from £20.

The new site is close to the Tate Modern gallery and Borough Market, and will be located in what was originally a Victorian tin box printing factory. The 7,000 sq ft restaurant space will be divided into two dining rooms, with a Mark's Bar in the basement.

The restaurant will also feature a glass-fronted kitchen, and artwork from Tim Noble and Sue Webster.

Business partner and finance director of the group Ratnesh Bagdai added: "This opening will be perfect timing for us both commercially given our successful opening in Devonshire Square and operationally whereby we have recently bolstered our top tier management team to take on a more focused and measured growth plan."

The new opening is one of several planned under the Hixter name.
