Hudsons, founded by Martin Ment, former Delisserie director, will replace Delisserie’s Shenley Road site in Borehamwood, and will serve the same menu as it does at its Whetstone and Mile End sites.
Dishes will include burgers; steaks; salads; fish dishes; truffle macaroni cheese; fried chicken; and a selection of sandwiches.
Indulge Dessert Lounge will move into Delisserie’s Buckingham Parade site in Stanmore, and will serve the same late-night dessert menu as it does at its Pinner site, including crepes; waffles; pancakes; ice cream sundaes; fondue; and cheesecake.
Both deals were brokered by CDG Leisure, which worked with insolvency agents Williams and Partners to secure the sites.
“This is a great outcome for Delisserie and a testament to the strength of the two brands. Hudsons’ extensive repertoire of iconic American dishes is guaranteed to generate a buzz with Borehamwood diners,” says Emma Cousins of CDG Leisure.
“We are also seeing a growing demand in dessert spots, catalysed by social media platforms, such as Instagram. Indulge’s huge variety and after-dinner opening hours will make it a perfect destination for friends and family alike.”
Delisserie’s site in Mill Hill East site reopened in April as the third site for Bob’s Café, a relatively new concept from the team that launched Chez Bob in Belsize Park.
The final remaining Delisserie site, in St John’s Wood, has been acquired by vegan restaurant group The Gate, and is scheduled to open under its new guise in October.
