Mediterranean restaurant to open second London site in Fitzrovia

6th February 2024 | Jack Oliver

Mediterranean restaurant concept Carmel is set to open its second location in London, after agreeing a 15-year lease for a 95-seat restaurant in Fitzrovia.

Located at 7-8 Market Place, the restaurant will comprise over 5,000 sq ft of space and is set to feature an open kitchen, a bar, and ‘The Green Room’, which will seat up to 30 guests in a naturally light space surrounded by greenery. There will also be an outdoor terrace which will accommodate up to 38 guests.

Carmel in Fitzrovia will join the brand’s existing location in Queen’s Park, whilst the restaurant’s parent group also operates sister brands Berber & Q and Shawarma Bar in East London and Exmouth Market respectively.

Savills advised the landlord, Woven Spaces, on the deal.

Josh Leon, director in restaurants and leisure at Savills, said: “Market Place is a fantastic spot just next to Oxford Circus with a critical mass of restaurants and outside seating. Woven Spaces have recently taken ownership of several units on the street and Carmel will be the first step in their exciting plans for the area, with another restaurant becoming available soon.”

Adriana Paice Kent, director of Woven Spaces, added: “Woven Spaces are delighted to welcome Carmel to Market Place. Their new opening marks an exciting chapter in the ongoing transformation of the historic and culturally vibrant area, driving forward our shared vision for Market Place as a premier leisure destination in the heart of London.”
