The first London venture by Russian restaurateur Arkady Novikov is to open this summer and will be named Novikov restaurant & bar.
Details that Novikov would take on the Mayfair site first emerged last year.
The venue will be divided into two restaurants, one specialising in Asian food and the other classic Italian. Additionally, there will be a stand-alone lounge bar.
