Rex Restaurant Associates acquires its latest site

November 14, 2013

Rex Restaurant Associates – the operator of some of London’s most iconic restaurants including The Wolseley, The Delaunay, Colbert and Brasserie Zedel – is to open a new restaurant after DCL – the leisure specialists – acquired the company a unit on Marylebone High Street.

This is the latest venture for Chris Corbin and Jeremy King – the pair behind Rex Restaurants. Previously trading as Cotidie the 3000 sq ft (approx) restaurant will be renamed Fischer’s and will be influenced by early 20th Century Vienna. It is intended that it will open in Spring 2014.

Josh Leon, Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons commented: “It’s a fabulous property occupying a great location on one of the most sought after streets in the Capital. We recommended the site to Rex who saw the opportunity, and we brokered a deal for them with the owner. We also handled the rent review negotiations with the Landlord, Howard de Walden, with whom we have a great relationship already. Late last year we brokered the deal for the hugely successful 28:50 in nearby Marylebone Lane which I know Howard de Walden are particularly pleased with. I have no doubt that Fischer’s will be fabulous when it opens, becoming another of Rex’s instant classics and will provide a very useful dining option for this part of town.
