In September, Mark Greenaway, Luis Pous and Kimberly Lin will each launch their own restaurant in the converted five-story townhouse.
On the first floor of the building overlooking the square will be Pivot, a modern British restaurant offering only a Greenaway tasting menu, with a focus on ‘keeping up with the seasons and using the best available produce’.
