Flemings Mayfair appoints restaurant team for Ormer Mayfair
The Flemings hotel in Mayfair has made three key appointments to the restaurant team for Ormer Mayfair which is due to open in September.
General manger Henrik Muehle has announced a Michelin-starred line up will be joining executive chef Shaun Rankin to fill the positions of head chef, restaurant manager and head sommelier.
The 85-cover restaurant within the boutique hotel will welcome Kerth Gumbs as head chef to act at Rankin's right hand man in the kitchen.
Gumbs joins from the Arts Club on Dover Street, where he managed a brigade of more than 30 chefs.
Prior to that he worked with Jason Atherton overseas as chef de cuisine and has also held positions at the Wolseley, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Tom Aikens.
Meanwhile Agnieszka Josko will take on the role of restaurant manager, joining from the two-Michelin-starred restaurant, the Greenhouse, where she held the same position.
She has also worked at establishments including Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's and Helene Darroze at the Connaught.
Josko previously worked with Rankin as a commis waitress at his Michelin-starred Jersey restaurant, Bohemia in 2004.
Andreas Rosendal will join Ormer Mayfair as head sommelier, having recently held the same role at Michelin-starred Brasserie Chavot.
He previously worked as assistant head sommelier for two years at the two-star Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham.
He also looked after the UK's largest wine list at the Greenhouse, with 3,600 bins.

Muehle said: "Shaun Rankin and I have worked closely together to select the very best possible team for Ormer Mayfair. Having overseen Seven Park Place at St James's hotel and club and Eric Chavot when he was at the Capital hotel London, I know how vital it is to get the right team in place from the very start.
"With Shaun, Kerth, Agnieszka and Andreas, we have a super talented brigade all working to establish Ormer Mayfair as one of London finest restaurants."
The restaurant is part of a £14m refurbishment of the hotel, which is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
