Selin Kiazim announces closure of Kyseri
Selin Kiazim has announced the closure of Turkish restaurant Kyseri in London's Fitzrovia.
Kiazim had opened the restaurant with Laura Christie, formerly operations manager at Salt Yard Group, in May last year focusing on Anatolian cuisine along with Black Sea region wines.
Final trading for the restaurant will be 21 December 2019.
Selin and Christie said that they planned to re-open the site next year in a new guise, focusing more on Turkish baking.
The pair said in a statement: "After a year and a half of making Fitzrovia our home for Kyseri we have taken the decision to move in a different direction. We love the location and space of Kyseri, our customers and the neighbourhood we've gotten to know, and so with an exciting new project up our sleeve we're sticking to recent roots and will re-open on our existing site.
"We're looking forward to sharing these last few months with our customers as we say farewell to Kyseri."
The pair are also behind Oklava in London's Shoreditch which opened in 2015.
