First London restaurant for the Antinori family, opening off Sloane Street this Autumn
Cadogan today announces the signing of Cantinetta Antinori to 4 Harriet Street, adjacent to Sloane Street – set to open in Autumn 2022.
It is the first restaurant opening in London for the Antinori family, renowned for producing Italy’s finest wines and their celebrated restaurant in Florence, located in the fifteenth century Palazzo Antinori. The family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries, across 26 generations. The new opening is an exciting joint venture between: Antinori family and renowned restaurateurs the Giraudis.
The restaurant has been signed on a 10-year lease and will span a 3,700 sq. ft characterful three storey period building in a prominent corner position, overlooked by ‘neighbours’ Gucci and Louis Vuitton on Sloane Street. It will offer relaxed, all day traditional Tuscan dining, fine wines and live music, in an informal yet refined environment.
Architects Humbert & Poyet, in collaboration with ArchFlorence, have been appointed to create a chic, convivial environment inspired by Tuscan cuisine – sharing, purity and simple sophistication – a contemporary interpretation of timeless Italian charm. Large bi-fold windows will open in warmer months to allow al fresco dining.
