Claude Bosi bids for London site, Murchison to move on vacated Hibiscus

Claude Bosi has put in an offer on a site on London's Maddox Street W1 and hopes to move his two Michelin-starred Hibiscus restaurant, currently based in Ludlow, into the space. Although the deal is not yet signed, if it does go ahead it is likely to open in late summer.

Gavin Redrupp, Surveyor in the Retail agency of Strutt and Parker property consultants, said that the site is part of a new development from 23-29 Maddox Street, the other part of which will be office space. The restaurant space is 3,000sq.ft over two levels.

Hibiscus in Ludlow closed its doors on April 7. The site has been sold to to Alan Murchison, who owns the nearby one Michelin-starred L'Ortolan restaurant, has just completed.

Murchison will rename the 17th Century building Le Becasse. It will open in early May after a refurbishment, with William Holland, L'Ortolan's Head Chef, becoming Head Chef at Le Becasse. Robin Gosse, Sous Chef at L'Ortolan will step up to be Head Chef. For the first six months the menu at Le Becasse will be similar to L'Ortolan as "we're filling big shoes so we're not going to try to be too clever, but after that we'll be trying to get to know more local suppliers and evolving what we're doing" said Murchison.
