The new restaurant will be on the well-known site that once housed patisserie Maison Sagne (it most recently traded as a Patisserie Valerie).
“We’ve been looking for a location in Marylebone since we moved to London over 12 years ago, and now we’ve finally found it in the very-much-loved Maison Sagne site, that is dear to so many people,” Granger says.
“I know we will recreate some magic, especially in the surprise double-height atrium space that the front opens up to, bringing joy to all those who first visited with their grandparents as kids. And of course lots of new visitors too.”
The high profile chef restaurateur launched his first UK site in Notting Hill in 2011 having enjoyed considerable success with the format in his native Australia and overseas, where it trades as Bill’s.
Further London sites have followed in King’s Cross, Clerkenwell and Chelsea.
Like the rest of the sites, the Marylebone High Street restaurant will offer an all-day menu inspired by Granger’s ‘far-flung travels’.
Entirely self-taught, Granger opened his first restaurant in Sydney in 1993.
