D&D London reveals further German Gymnasium restaurant details

D&D London has revealed further details of its forthcoming King's Cross restaurant German Gymnasium, scheduled for Spring next year.

The 10,000 sq ft development is part of a deal with the area's asset manager, King's Cross Limited Partnership, and will see the conversion of England's first purpose-built gym into a complex of restaurants, bars and private dining rooms.

The Grade II-listed, 19th century site, located opposite St Pancras Station, will be home to a 150-seat brasserie. It is also expected to house a second, smaller restaurant, a bar, private dining space and outdoor terraces capable of seating up to 70 people.

It will be the biggest restaurant launch from the group since LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group, took majority control of the business in a £50m management buyout last April, reported the Telegraph.

D&D London chairman and chief executive Des Gunewardena predicted "significant" revenue growth for the year to 31 March, as a result of new openings such as the South Place Hotel in the City, home to the Angler fish restaurant, which recently won a Michelin star in 2013.

Gunewardena said: "Our plan is to have restaurants that are open all day, seven days a week. We have watched and admired King's Cross coming to life, and are very excited to become part of it."
