The Goring in London’s Belgravia is kicking off 2019 by scouring the country to find the next executive chef to lead its Dining Room kitchen brigade.
The restaurant, which first received its Michelin-star in 2016, has been under the leadership of talented executive chef Shay Cooper for five years.
During his tenure with the historic hotel he has established the dining room as one of the UK’s most prestigious restaurants.
With Mr Cooper moving on to pastures new later this year, CEO Jeremy Goring and his team are keen to find the right person to build on the great work that has already been achieved and cement the Dining Room’s reputation.
Now the only five-star luxury hotel in London which is still owned and run by the founding family, The Goring is determined to find a “dynamic” chef with an abundance of imagination, creativity and initiative to push the restaurant even further.
The new search comes after the announcement of a second restaurant opening within the hotel in late spring 2019.
Mr Goring said: “It’s been an utter privilege to work with Shay, in my opinion he’s one of the very best chefs in the country. With his help over the last five years we’ve taken The Dining Room to a new level. Now we intend to continue building on that and take another big step upwards in our flagship restaurant.
“Looking forward, there is a lot of excitement within The Goring as to what 2019 will bring. With the announcement of our new restaurant and bar opening later in the year, it’s the perfect time for a brilliant new chef to take command of the Dining Room and raise it to the next level.”
