D&D London to open rooftop City restaurant in 2019
D&D London has announced plans to launch a new rooftop restaurant in the City of London next spring.

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.
