Cote, the French brasserie concept, intends to open its 20th restaurant by the year's end.

The business, which is operated by the former Strada management team and backed by Richard Caring, has just unveiled its latest eaterie, in London's Chiswick, which is restaurant number 13.

The opening in west London comes soon after the group unveiled a restaurant in Birmingham’s Mailbox development – the furthest outpost from its London heartland.

Restaurants are set to follow in Brighton this July, Farnham in August, and Ealing, Highgate and St Paul’s – all in early September. A business will also open in Bristol before the end of the year, taking it to 19 restaurants.

Further Cote opening before 2011

The group is also at various stages on a further three sites – both within central London and in other towns and cities – and expects to open at least one of these before 2011.

Cote was first established in 2007 in Wimbledon Village by the former directors of Strada – Andy Bassadone, Chris Benians, Marcus Cload and Nick Fiddler.
