Two ­Michelin-starred, New York­-based restaurant Aquavit plans to open a UK outpost in London.

Aquavit, which focuses on high end Nordic cuisine, is believed to have secured a unit at the St James’s Market development at 52 Haymarket, according to BigHospitality's sister publication MCA​ (previously M&C Allegra).

It is thought that the Salt Yard Group has also secured a unit at the property, which offers seven restaurant spaces. 

As previously revealed by MCA​, Aquavit will be joined at the development by the second UK Duck & Waffle.

Duck & Waffle owner Samba Brands is understood to have signed up a unit in the development, following the success of the first Duck & Waffle, which opened on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in Bishopsgate in 2012. 

Samba Brands is also set to open a restaurant London’s Mayfair later this year, under the name Raw & BBQ. Samba Brands secured the site 11 Berkeley Street last year for the concept which will specialise in raw and barbeque cuisine.

Earlier this year, the company confirmed​ it will replace Brasserie Blanc at Covent Garden’s Opera Terrace. The new restaurant, on which Samba Brands is investing £4m to design and develop, will be the group’s second Sushisamba in the UK and will open early next year
