The Team
LDC Region

D&D owns and operates premium restaurants and bars across the world.

Its portfolio also includes some of London’s most iconic restaurants such as Coq d’Argent in the City, Quaglino’s in Mayfair, The Bluebird in Chelsea and Plateau in Canary Wharf.

D&D creates high-quality premium restaurants, each trading under its own fascia and unique characteristic or concept.

LDC backed a management buyout at D&D in 2013, ensuring the management team was well-placed to move forward with its domestic and international expansion strategy.

We’ve worked with LDC during a good period for the business, a time which has seen us achieve greater scale in the UK, refurbish our core estate and expand into new markets overseas with the team’s support.”
