About Us

D&D London is a group of luxury restaurants, bars and hotels based principally in London , but also with venues in Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Paris and New York . It was founded by Des Gunewardena and David Loewi (the eponymous D and D) in 2006, following a buyout of Conran Restaurants, which itself was established back in 1991. The company was already central to London’s restaurant scene, owning some of the capital’s most celebrated restaurants, such as Quaglino’sLe Pont de la Tour, Chelsea’s famous Bluebird and City favourite Coq d’Argent. The group also created and owned The Great Eastern Hotel (sold to Hyatt Hotels in 2006 and now rebranded as Andaz) Alcazar in Paris and Guastavino’s in New York, among others.
