NYC’s Carbone Is Coming to London

It’s been one of the hottest restaurants in New York since it opened just over a decade ago

The age of big-money hotels, and accordingly, high-profile restaurant openings in London is back in full force – see Mauro Colagreco (and the rest) at Raffles London at The OWO, Claude Bosi at The Peninsula and Yannick Alleno at Pavyllon – and there’s plenty more on the way.

The Chancery Rosewood is opening on the former American Embassy site in Grosvenor Square, promising a number of bedrooms and suites, a ballroom, five shops, a wellness facility and a variety of restaurants. We know that one of those restaurants is going to be a revival of Richard Caring’s Le Caprice (which will no doubt draw comparisons to Jeremy King’s reincarnation of the same restaurant, albeit with a different name) and another will be a London outpost of iconic NYC hotspot Carbone.

First opened in Greenwich Village in 2013, Carbone, an upscale take on classic red-sauce Italian-American restaurants, was popular from almost the instant it opened and has become one of the city’s biggest celeb magnets, drawing in everyone who’s anyone for baked clams, spicy rigatoni vodka and veal parm. Major Food Group, which operates the restaurant, has opened sister sites in Las Vegas, Miami, Dallas and Hong Kong, and now it’s London’s turn. Given that the city is in the midst of a love affair with all things Italian-American, this is going to be one huge opening.
