Ludlow to London: Claude Bosi to relocate Hibiscus

by Joanna Wood, Thursday 21st June 2007 07:15

Hibiscus, Claude and Claire Bosi's renowned restaurant, will have a new site in London's Maddox Street, Caterer can reveal.

The couple completed the deal for the property this week, having closed the doors of their acclaimed two-Michelin-starred restaurant at its original site in Ludlow, Shropshire, in April.

The reincarnated Hibiscus will open at 29 Maddox Street, a new-build site, in mid-September. The 48-seat restaurant will have a 16-seat private dining room and a team of 18 staff, including a 10-strong kitchen brigade. Most staff have transferred south with the Bosis from Ludlow, including sous chef Marcus McGuinness and head chef Marcus Eaves.

Bosi commented: "I'm so lucky. We've only lost one commis from the kitchen team. I've got a brigade that is full of talent which is really looking forward to the challenge in London."

The restaurant will open Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner and has been designed by David Davies. Bosi plans to offer a similar pricing structure as previously in Ludlow. He said: "I'm transferring Hibiscus, not starting a new restaurant. The idea is to continue and build on what I have been doing."
