Restaurateur David Moore has engaged Restaurant Property to secure further sites for his US-style smokehouse restaurant One Sixty and a new home for former pop-up Pieds Nus.
In April, Moore, who owns Michelin-starred London restaurants Pied à Terre and L’Autre Pied, opened One Sixty in West Hampstead with Sean Martin, the former owner of the Northumberland Arms in Fitzrovia and the Barley Mow, in Marylebone. It is understood a deal for a second site could be signed as early as next month and there are plans for a third to follow. Meanwhile, Moore is also looking for a suitable site for Pieds Nus. The “less is more” concept, which offered traditional dishes stripped back to their main components, opened as a pop-up in October last year on the site of what was Simon Rogan’s Roganic in London’s Blandford Street, with chef Ed Dutton at the helm.
Founder of Restaurant Property David Rawlinson said: “We have a very close relationship with David. What he doesn’t know about restaurants is not worth knowing. His canny judgement means he is a very reliable barometer of the market to follow.” Restaurant Property also brokered the original deal with Simon Rogan.
