Australian chef Shaun Presland has confirmed he will return to the UK to open his first solo venture.

The restaurant, named Pacific, will open at 8-10 Lower James Street in Soho later this year, in a site formerly occupied by Foxlow.

Presland was previously executive chef of Japanese Sake restaurant group in Australia, which encompasses six premium dining restaurants as well as a number of more casual outlets.

He has trained under chefs including Hiroshi Miura, Kenji Nishinakagawa and Nobu Matsuhisa.

Hawksmoor Group announced it would close Foxlow Soho on 18 April after receiving an offer on the site.
