The Soho House Group who last month reopened its original Soho House members club, and relaunched the restaurant Kettner's (next door) will open a new Cecconi’s-branded pizza bar this spring, on Old Compton Street, as reported in the CODE Bulletin.
A spokesperson for Soho House told Eater: “This spring, we’re opening Cecconi’s Pizza Bar on the Old Compton Street site of the former Soho Kitchen & Bar, serving cicchetti, pizza and cocktails. The restaurant will have a pizza oven, and the signature Cecconi’s marble striped floor.”
It is the first time the group has created a ‘lite’ iteration of the brand which first opened under Soho House’s full ownership in London’s Mayfair in 2005. Cecconi’s — created by Enzo Cecconi, the youngest ever general manager of Cipriani in Venice — originally opened in London in 1978. Today, the restaurant is understood to be one of London’s highest grossing sites of its size.
Since 2005, Soho House has opened Cecconi’s restaurants in New York, Barcelona, Berlin, Mayfair, Istanbul, Miami, West Hollywood and The Ned in the City of London. It remains a favourite among celebrities and royals.
Last month Soho House also reopened Cafe Boheme, the French bistro at the bottom of the original members club on the corner of Greek Street and Old Compton Street.
