Paris' Caviar Kaspia looks to be making a permanent return to London, after launching a UK pop-up last year.

Hot Dinners​ reports that the roe-focused restaurant has taken on the site of the former Chess Club private member’s club in Mayfair for an opening in April 2019.

Chess Club launched in January 2017 and hired Jackson Boxer as executive chef of its restaurant, but it shut its doors earlier this year.

Caviar Kaspia, known for its signature caviar-topped baked potato, previously ran a Mayfair restaurant before it closed in the early 2000’s to be replaced by Bellamy’s.

The brand made a brief return to the capital last year when it ran a pop-up to mark its 90th birthday at member’s club Loulou’s.

Its new London opening looks set to offer dishes such as poached eggs with beluga caviar; and smoked fish.

Caviar Kaspia was founded in 1927 and opened its restaurant on Paris’ Place de la Madeleine in 1953.

It now looks to be on an expansion drive, having launched a café bar at upmarket Paris department store Galeries Lafayette in April after testing the water in New York and Monaco with pop-ups in 2017.

The group joins a number of Parisian restaurant brands that have crossed the Channel in the last few years. Noodle specialist Yen opened its debut London restaurant​ last year, while Big Mamma group is to open in Shoreditch in 2019​.
