Opening in May, Gazelle will span two storeys comprising a café, bar and restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It will be the second collaboration for the pair, who also operate east London bar and Japanese restaurant, Untitled Bar.
“I always wanted to open a place where the food stood equal with the drinks and would be a complete destination in its own right,” says Conigliaro.
“We spent months looking at various sites but knew as soon as we walked into this one that it would afford us the space and scope to really make it into something special for both of us.”
The new restaurant at 48 Albemarle Street will feature exposed brickwork and high ceilings, after being extensively modelled from its current use as a commercial art venue.
Rob Roy Cameron cut his teeth at the now-closed three Michelin-starred El Bulli, an iconic restaurant in Spain, five times listed on the top spot of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. He then went on to open 41 Degrees in Barcelona with its former owners. He has worked alongside Tony Conigliaro at Untitled and Bar Termini.
Congliaro opened 69 Colebrooke Row in Islington in 2009, as well as award-winning bars at both Zetter Townhouses in 2011, and Soho’s Bar Termini in 2015. He was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Class Bar Awards 2018.
Albemarle Street is undergoing a transformation by landlord Trophaeum, inspired by Milan’s a high-end shopping and dining destination, Via Monte Napoleone street.
