High-end Italian restaurant Il Borro is to take over the Nobu Berkeley Street site in London’s Mayfair later this year.

The international operator is taking a 20-year lease on the 11,000 sq ft site at a “record rent” for the area, according to real estate adviser Knight Frank.

The restaurant will be the first Il Borro site in the UK and is apparently inspired by the 700-acre Tuscan estate​ of the same name.

It will open later this year and serve Italian produce sourced from the estate.

“We are delighted at bringing a piece of Italy’s Tuscan region to London’s world-class restaurant destination in Mayfair,” says Josh Braid, partner in Knight Frank’s central London team.

“After a global search for this renowned flagship, we were impressed with Il Borro’s culture, creativity and attention to detail making this combination a truly exciting prospect for London’s fine dining scene.”

Nobu will close on 23 March​ after 15 years on Berkeley Street, with the restaurant and staff relocating to a new site within the upcoming Nobu Hotel London Portman Square when it opens this summer.

Knight Frank acted on behalf of LRC for 15 Berkeley Street and Dean Gambles & Co acted for Il Borro.
