London restaurant group Caprice Holdings has sold its Moroccan restaurant, Pasha, to Levant owner Tony Kitous.
Kitous, who also owns Marylebone restaurant Levantine, bought the site about a month ago for an undisclosed sum.
The South Kensington restaurant will trade as normal until the New Year, when it will shut for refurbishment. The 90-seat business will then continue with the same name, but menus will undergo a complete overhaul.
Kitous said the sale was made through a private deal and the restaurant never came on to the market. "There have been a lot of changes at Caprice Holdings recently, so we approached them to see if there were any opportunities," he said.
Caprice Holdings managing director Des McDonald confirmed the sale. "Pasha just didn't fit in with our plans for the future," he said.
