The currently unnamed project will open on the 14th floor of the 120 Fenchurch Street development, beneath a public sky garden.
The 9257 sq ft site will be the group’s largest opening in the capital since the 10,000 sq ft Aster launched at Nova Victoria in 2017.
It comes after D&D announced it was ending its 15-year contract to run the dining spaces at the nearby Royal Exchange to focus on a new project in the City.
The company’s most recent expansion has focused outside London, with Aiden Byrne’s 20 Stories launching in Manchester in February. The group is also planning to open the first overseas outpost of Bluebird Café in New York this year.
”London continues to be a significant part of D&D’s growth strategy and the project also reflects our continuing commitment to the City,” says Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D.
“120 Fenchurch is a remarkable building and I hope that we can create a restaurant to match.”
D&D owns and operates over 30 restaurants worldwide, including Le Pont de la Tour, German Gymnasium and Sartoria in London.
