Jeremy King has signed to open a restaurant in the new Park Modern building near London’s Kensington Palace Gardens next spring.

The Park will be in the grand cafés and brasseries mould that The Wolseley co-founder is known for but will be ‘very much of the early 21st Century rather than 20th’. 

Writing in an email, King says he is ‘getting back in the saddle – or perhaps more precisely getting the hacking jacket tailored and building the stable’.

The highly-respected restaurateur lost control of his restaurant group - then called Corbin & King - last year.​ 

The Park will be King's debut solo restaurant project, with The Wolseley - which opened in 2003 - and all subsequent restaurant projects including Covent Garden's The Delaunay, Soho's Brasserie Zédel and Chelsea's Colbert launched with his business partner Chris Corbin. 

King also says that it ‘hopefully won’t be long’ until he returns to his traditional stomping ground of the West End. 

“Oh how I have missed you. It has been a long time but hopefully you will experience the benefits of my enforced sojourn and what I have learnt in my time away.

“I am determined to be a better restaurateur, employer and friend - and I look forward to seeing you.”
