Chef Larry Jayasekara and his business partner, Tim Jefferies - a near 40-year commercial resident of Hamiltons Gallery in London’s Mayfair - have secured a location for their first solo venture in the exclusive Bruton Place development in Mayfair.

A 20-year lease has now been signed at 27 Bruton Place, covering 3,000 square feet over four floors. The restaurant is expected to open early Autumn 2022. 

After 18 years in the UK and working in many of Britain’s finest restaurants, Larry was introduced to Tim and his gallery in nearby Carlos Place, and the two formed a friendship. After years of planning, they set about discussing the opening of a new Mayfair restaurant, something intimate that will offer guests a vibrancy and buzz with an open kitchen and a private dining room. 

“It’s been a bit of a roller coaster the past couple of years with Covid, but we’re thrilled to have exchanged on this particular site," explains Larry. "When we first decided to open a restaurant together, we knew it would have to be in the right location, and this was our first choice.”

Yet to be named, the venue will be housed within the historic Bruton Place Mews building. The pair have also secured another 800 square foot site opposite the restaurant at 38 Bruton Place, which is set to become a delicatessen with takeaway option at ground floor level. Both sites will be extensively remodelled before opening.
