Richard Caring set to reopen Le Caprice within the £1 billion Chancery Rosewood hotel

Le Caprice, the renowned London dining destination often frequented by celebrities, is set to make a comeback at the soon-to-be-opened Chancery Rosewood hotel.

Restaurateur Richard Caring, the proprietor of the Le Caprice brand, expressed that the forthcoming venue would retain the essence of the original establishment while while being updated for a modern audience.

It is expected to launch alongside the £1b hotel, which occupies the former US Embassy building in Grosvenor Square, in 2025.

The revamped Le Caprice will span two levels, featuring a main restaurant accommodating 120 guests, centered around a spacious bar. Additionally, it will boast a 'year-round' terrace with seating for 88 patrons and a private dining room accommodating 24 guests.

“Le Caprice opened in 1981 and that’s 43 years ago,” Caring said, who also owns the Ivy and Annabel’s.

“I’m sure a lot of people will want to see Le Caprice as it was, but I believe it should be moved into the 2020s.”

Jeremy King and Chris Corbin, the original proprietors of Le Caprice in Mayfair, transformed the establishment in 1981 into a renowned dining destination frequented by celebrities like Princess Diana and Mick Jagger.

The restaurant was bought by Caring, who closed the site in 2020 during the pandemic.

King launched Arlington, a new restaurant, in March, taking over the former site of Le Caprice.

Michael Bonsor, who has over a decade of experience leading Rosewood London, will serve as the managing director of the 139-room Chancery Rosewood.
