What they say:
Starting off as a hairdresser, Carlo Distefano has turned his San Carlo group into an empire. With a series of restaurants across the world, the group are now adding another venue to their roster as they take over Searcys Balcony Bar and Brasserie in the Bullring's Selfridges. In its place a second Fumo will open in August, following a £1 million renovation. Expect the same Italian small plates as the first venue, along with a special Laurent Perrier Champagne Bar and a swish cocktail list.
