The Savoy has announced that Fabrice Lasnon is its new executive chef as the hotel looks to plot a new course.
Lasnon, a French born and trained chef, has worked across the world in luxury hotels including Royal Mirage in Dubai, Kempinski in Istanbul, and Marrakech's La Mamounia. He joins the team following a stint at the Murray in Hong Kong, returning to London after 20 years away from the capital.
It comes as the legendary hotel looks to build on its traditions in a new and fresh direction. In a statement, the Savoy said Lasnon would be implementing "subtle changes across the food offering throughout the hotel including the launch of a new breakfast menu and a refashioned in-room dining offering".
Lasnon will also oversee the launch of Bill of Fare in Simpson's in the Strand following the appointment of Adrian Martin as the site's chef de cuisine.
