The 2,500 sq ft restaurant on Kensington High Street will span two storeys, including a ground floor bar counter and 30-cover dining space; a 50-cover basement dining area; and a 12-cover outdoor terrace.
Menus will offer customers a “casual-elegant” selection of Latin American and Mediterranean fusion dishes, taking inspiration from the cuisines of Mexico, Peru, Italy and Spain.
At weekends, the restaurant will host a DJ, and live jazz musicians will perform for special occasions.
Property agency Shelley Sandzer secured the deal.
“Kensington High Street is a highly desirable neighbourhood, making it a great location for Zuaya’s debut,” says Tony Levine, leasing agent at Shelley Sandzer.
“We are thrilled to continue working on deals that see new brands open their debut in London, keeping the city’s restaurant offer fresh and exciting.”
Latin American-inspired cuisine is proving popular in the capital this year, with a number of new openings offering menus influenced by its colourful dishes. Paladar, in Elephant and Castle opened last month, and earlier this month Venezuelan brand Arepa & Co opened its second site.
