The Pavillion, which stands at the gateway to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, is currently under construction.
The building includes a 3,000 sq ft terrace with views across the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and what will become East Bank, the future home to world-class cultural institutions including Sadler’s Wells and the V&A, amongst others.
D&D has not yet announced details of the restaurant.
Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D London, said: “D&D has an established reputation for being at the forefront of restaurant development within emerging areas of cities both in the UK and overseas.
“We see Stratford as an exciting new cultural and leisure quarter of London, particularly following the 2012 Olympics, and we are admirers of Lendlease’s bold vision for IQL’s development.”
He added: “We look forward to occupying what will be some beautiful spaces and hope to develop restaurant, café and bar concepts to do justice to a building which is sure to become an iconic landmark for Stratford and for London.”
D&D London’s portfolio includes 40 restaurants and bars including Bluebird Chelsea, Launceston Place in Kensington, German Gymnasium in Kings Cross, Fiume in Battersea Power Station and the recently opened 14 Hills in Fenchurch Street.
