Conran is teaming up with chef Richard McLellan, formerly of London’s Typing Room and Michelin-starred Alyn Williams at The Westbury, for the project.
Wilder will open in October in the space formerly occupied by French chef Stephane Reynaud’s Tratra restaurant, which closed in 2018 and has since been used as an events area.
It is billed as offering ‘elegant dishes and a relaxed dining experience’ with a focus on British ingredients, some of which will be sourced from Conran’s Barton Court country estate in Berkshire.
This is the first new London opening for Conran after Prescott & Conran, the restaurant group he co-founded with Peter Prescott in 2006, fell in to administration last year with the closure of its three remaining restaurants.
The Boundary traded as part of the business but was sold by administrators to a separate company owned by the Conran family.
Conran launched London restaurants such as Coq d'Argent and Le Pont de la Tour under the Conran Restaurants business, which was bought out by Des Gunewardena and David Loewi to form D&D London in 2006.
