Cote Restaurants, the French bistro chain founded by Andy Bassadone and Chris Benians and owned by Richard Caring, is set to open its 29th site, in Islington.

The French Brasserie has secured a new lease on the Ignite Group’s former Playtime Bar in Islington Green. A 20-year lease has been taken on the 4,000 sq.ft unit, at a rent of £110,000 pa. The restaurant will provide around 100 covers and will be opening in early December.

Nick Weir a Director at Shelley Sandzer, who advised Cote on the deal said: “Cote were looking for a location that would mirror their informal and friendly offer and place them in the heart of one of London’s most culturally diverse and fast paced areas. Islington Green really hit the spot for them.”

Cote, which opened its first site in London in 2007, already has restaurants in Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent, London, Surrey, Sussex, The Midlands, Somerset, the South West and Wales. It is on track to operate a 30-strong estate by the end of the year.
