12 London restaurant openings to watch in 2020


Unstoppable duo Chris Corbin and Jeremy King are to continue their refinement of London restaurants with the opening of a chic seafood site called Manzi’s in Soho this year. Named in honour of the much-loved Leicester Square fish restaurant, the cavernous 241-cover Manzi’s within Bateman’s Buildings will celebrate fruits de mer in all its guises and will have a nautical design theme.

“In the same spirit of Brasserie Zédel, we want it to be fun and affordable. What is extraordinary about this site it is that it set over two floors in the heart of Soho, and yet has windows on both sides of the dining rooms,” the pair said in a statement.

In addition to the main dining room, the space will feature a ground floor bar and dining room, an outdoor terrace and private dining room, and is set to employ 155 full and part-time staff. The interiors will be looked after by designer Brady William, who recently put his hand to Bob Bob Cité’s lavish look, and will feature booths down one side and counter dining down the other.
