Reubens closed in May after 46 years of trading following a family bereavement.
Now Lee Landau, who runs kosher cafes and restaurants across London under the S Group, has bought the site and intends to reopen it following a refurbishment.
A new restaurant will also be developed in the downstairs area.
“Reubens had become a culinary institution in the Jewish community over many generations, as well as for tourists enjoying attractions in the area,” says Jonathan Moradoff, director, agency and leasing at Davis Coffer Lyons, which completed the sale.
“Lee Landau already has a very highly regarded reputation in kosher cuisine which puts him in a fantastic position to capitalise on the following that Reubens has established over so many decades in London.”
Landau’s portfolio includes the SOYO cafés and PIZAZA pizza and milkshake restaurants in Golders Green, Edgeware and Borehamwood. S Group has further sites under development that will launch in the next few months.
“We are thrilled to be giving Reubens another lease of life, whilst importantly maintaining the integrity of this well-loved institution,” says Landau.
