Wood-fired restaurant concept Goldies debuts at Soho’s Kingly Court

7th June 2024 | Jack Oliver

Goldies, the wood-fired restaurant concept led by Maxime and Yannis Alary, is set to open its debut restaurant at Shaftesbury Capital’s Kingly Court in Soho.

The new concept will take 1,100 sq ft of space at the al fresco dining destination, delivering small and large plates centred on smoky flavours through wood-fired cooking.

Goldies’ debut will look to complement the likes of Darjeeling Express, Donia, and Liu Xiaomian within Kingly Court, bringing a Western European flavour to the dining hub.

The three-storey Kingly Court forms a key part of Soho, with an entrance onto the world-famous Carnaby Street. It is bounded by Kingly Street, a dining hub which has recently bolstered its food and beverage offer.

Michelle McGrath, executive director at Shaftesbury Capital, said: “The Alary brothers are innovative and high-quality operators, and Goldies is an exciting new concept, bringing some of London’s best food to Kingly Court in Soho. The signing will occupy a key strategic corner of Kingly Court, signalling our ambition to create London’s iconic foodie destination, accompanied by other world class premium operators such as Donia and Darjeeling Express.”

Maxime and Yannis Alary, co-founders of Goldies, added: “The West End is one of the most recognised locations in the world, one we have learned a huge amount about since starting our journey here a decade ago. Shaftesbury Capital’s Kingly Court has seen the success of so many independent concepts since its inception, and we are determined to be part of its story.”

Alongside recent additions to Kingly Court, Shaftesbury Capital has also evolved the food and beverage offer on Kingly Street, introducing The Counter and The Little Violet Door in the last month, alongside the upsize of pub and cocktail bar, Two Floors.
