London-based restaurant group, D&D London, is continuing its expansion into the north of England with the announcement of a second opening in Leeds in late 2016.

The as-yet-unnamed restaurant will be located at Hammerson's new Victoria Gate retail quarter in the city, occupying a 7,804sq.ft rooftop unit which will include an outside dining terrace.

Des Gunewardena, chief executive and chairman of D&D London, said that the group enjoys operating in Leeds.

“We are very excited to be opening a restaurant in what I think will be a spectacular rooftop space above Hammerson’s new Victoria Gate shopping centre,” he said.

“This will be our second venture in Leeds after the launch of Crafthouse and Angelica which have proved big successes for us, and we enjoy very much being a part of the city’s restaurant scene.”

Sarah Fox, head of restaurant and leisure at Hammerson, said: “We are delighted to be able to welcome D&D to the Victoria Gate. Not only is this a significant first for Hammerson’s shopping centre portfolio, securing a restaurant group of the calibre of D&D is a fantastic result for the development and reflects the aspirational retail, dining and leisure experience we are bringing to Leeds.”

The rooftop restaurant will be the latest addition to D&D London’s 34-strong portfolio which also owns restaurants in London, New York, Copenhagen and Tokyo.
