Lewis Craig are frequently instructed to advise Landlords in London’s affluent suburbs. We are particuarly proud to have played a key role in bringing some of the finest chefs and restaurants to West London’s Notting Hill.
Some highlights include acting for two separate Landlords of adjoining premises (155 & 157 Westbourne Grove), to secure Endo Kazutoshi’s sister restaurant “Sumi”, from his fame at “Endo at the Rotunda” in White City.
This involved detailed negotiations between two outgoing Tenants, including the surrender and assignment negotations, dilapidations, and the structural works negotiations to create an opening between the structural dividing wall.
We also advised the Landlord of 105-107 Talbot Road, which involved an extensive targeted marketing exercise, resulting in the securing of Chris D’Sylva’s newest venture – Dorian.
Chris also owns the “Notting Hill Fish Shop” and “Supermarket of Dreams” in Holland Park. Dorian’s head chef is Max Coen, formerly head chef of Ikoyi, assisted by George Williams, who used to work at River Cafe.
