Mediterranean restaurant launches on Elystan Street
Italian restaurant Wild Tavern has launched its debut site in Chelsea. The 3,600 sq ft eatery at 2 Elystan Street was secured by leisure property agency, Shelley Sandzer.
The concept was founded by George Bukhov-Weinstein and Ilya Demichev, who, inspired by the coastal areas of Italy, Spain, and France, are providing “authentic charcoal grill fare created with the best local and Mediterranean produce”.
George Bukhov, co-founder of Wild Tavern, commented: “We love Chelsea and are excited to become a part of its local community. We are very grateful to Shelley Sandzer, who we worked with in the past securing great sites for Goodman Steakhouse and Burger & Lobster. It’s a great property full of natural light and we believe it will become a new locals’ favourite.”
Ben Freeman, leasing agent at Shelley Sandzer, added: “Elystan Street and its surrounds offer so much in foodie inspirations, and Wild Tavern will no doubt complement and enhance the offer to local residents and visitors to Chelsea alike. The Mediterranean concept embraces the increasingly cosmopolitan nature of the area, and this prime spot on the corner of Chelsea Green will ensure its warm and local community feel is highly visible.”
Shelley Sandzer acted for the landlord.
