The hotel has confirmed the rumours by announcing that British chef Simon Rogan, the holder of 2 Michelin stars at his restaurant L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria is to take the helm at the new Claridge’s restaurant, which opens in spring 2014.
Simon Rogan has won many plaudits, most recently Restaurateur of the Year and the Chef Award in this year’s Catey Awards. L’Enclume was also voted the Best Restaurant in the UK by the Good Food Guide 2014.
The French in Manchester restaurant at The Midland Hotel has scooped the Best Newcomer and Best Restaurant gongs at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival awards, as well as three AA Rosettes and is the first Manchester restaurant in the Sunday Times Food List.
Well done to Cartmel’s adopted son.
