Toby Stuart joins Roux at Parliament Square

Toby Stuart has joined Roux at Parliament Square]( as head chef, two months after the surprise departure of former Roux scholar Daniel Cox.

Stuart joins the Westminster restaurant, which is part of contract caterer Compass Group's fine-dining division [Restaurant Associates]( and in association with Michel Roux Jnr, from the one-Michelin-starred [Galvin at Windows]( at the London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane where he was senior sous chef.

Sue Thompson, director of business development and business excellence at Restaurant Associates, said that the highly experienced chef has considerable talent: "We are gaining a strong reputation for the skill of our kitchen at what has become a popular destination in the Westminster village.

"Toby was selected by Michel Roux Jnr from a very high calibre shortlist to build on these standards."

Prior to Galvin at Windows, Stuart worked in a number of Michelin-starred establishments in the UK and France including the Square, L'Escargot, Auberge du Lac, Maison Troisgrois, Can Fabes, Orrery and Cliveden. His career began in 1997 with work experience at Aubergine.

Stuart succeeds Cox, who left Roux at Parliament in July, just 10 weeks after the restaurant opened. He has since joined Verbier Exlusive, a high-end chalet holiday business, for the winter ski season.
