Back in the height of lockdown in 2020, BGP relet one of the most prominent restaurants in Central London, the old Carluccio’s in St Christopher’s Place. Whilst a full-scale lockdown of the hospitality industry might not have been the best time to let a West End restaurant, the flight to prime had commenced and interest was high.
Now 18 months later, the hard work has paid off and Isola, a bespoke concept from San Carlo is open and looks magnificent at the heart of the Piazza. Working with Marcello Distefano and his team has been a wonderful experience, resulting in a true partnership of ideas in terms of design and concept.
This 220 cover restaurant features a massive 50 cover alfresco terrace in the heart of St Christopher’s Place, catering for its diverse catchment of office tenants, West End shoppers and tourists. A soft palette of yellows, greens, and pinks, shine through in the design, which combined with the extensive shellfish and sea food display, transports you immediately back to a relaxed summer holiday vibe.
Bruce Gillingham Pollard are sole agents for the restaurant and retail lettings at St Christopher’s Place.
