London restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King have unveiled the official name of their eagerly awaited new restaurant, which is to open next month, as reported exclusively in Caterer in May](http://www.caterersearch.com/Articles/2006/05/19/306860/Chris+Corbin+and+Jeremy+King+to+open+new+London+restaurant+in.htm ).
St Alban will be a 130-cover restaurant serving modern European food located at Rex House on London's Lower Regent Street, a stone's throw from their Wolseley restaurant on Piccadilly.
It takes its name from St Alban's Street, which runs along one side of the building, and will be run by former Ivy manager Mitch Everard.
The head chef is said to be a well-known Sicilian chef, who has not yet been named.
St Alban's will comprise a modern interior in stark contrast to its sister restaurants the Ivy and the Wolseley, designed by Stiff and Trevillion, the firm behind Wagamama and Satsuma.
Corbin and King bought the leasehold for the 8,000sq ft premises on the ground floor of Rex House for £2.8m in April.
The building comprises a mixed-use site that also includes offices, shops and fitness clubs and used to house Italian restaurant Il Pomodorino.
