The family behind Jamavar, the new upmarket Indian in Mayfair, has taken the lease on Claude Bosi’s former restaurant Hibiscus in Maddox and plans to open an as-yet unnamed “casual Indian concept” there later in the year.
Dinesh Nair, co-chairman of India’s uber-luxurious Leela Palace group and his daughter Samyuktaare to launch a new Maddox Street venture, which will be run independently from the Leela Palace business.
Jamavar, which opened before Christmas in Mount Street and based on the Jamavars which operate inside the Leela Palace hotels, Nair’s first foray into the British market.
French-born Bosi closed Hibiscus, the foodie temple he founded 17 years ago in Ludlow, last October, and is scheduled to open a new venture this spring at Bibendum, in landmark Michelin House, South Kensington.
