The team behind the Chelsea restaurant Medlar are opening a second restaurant in the capital 15 years after their first launch.

Called Cornus, the rooftop restaurant will open at the Ice Factory in Belgravia, a new five-floor re-purposed warehouse building located in Eccleston Yards that takes its name from the site’s original use as being home to Shingleton’s Ice Company from 1869 onwards.

The restaurant takes its name from a genus of around 60 species of woody plants in the family Cornaceae, commonly known as dogwoods. 

Details of the restaurant are still under wraps but the new fine dining restaurant will have a strong wine focus and will build on the strong reputation for food and service for which Medlar is known.

Located on the King’s Road, Medlar was opened by chef Joe Mercer Nairne and front of house manager David O’Connor in 2011.

Cornus will join restaurants at Eccleston Yards that include Latin-American inspired Morena, The Jones Family Kitchen, plant-based healthy bowl concept Atis,​ Wild by Tart, and Amie Wine Studio.
