The restaurant, founded by Andy Bassadone and Chris Benians and owned by Richard Caring, has taken a 20-year lease from Blue Mango Investments on the George Bar and Restaurant.
Nick Weir, a director at Shelley Sandzer, who advised Cote on the deal, said: “This is Côte’s second new venue in as many weeks. They are looking for the right combination of demographic, location and venue. When they found it in Esher they were prepared to move quickly.”
The new site is a 3500 sq.ft unit and it has been taken at a rent of 110,000 per annum. Cattaneo Commercial acted for the Landlords.
Last month, Cote secured a new lease on the Ignite Group’s former Playtime Bar in Islington Green. The French brasserie already has restaurants in Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent, London, Surrey, Sussex, the Midlands, the South West and Wales.
