Albert Roux, the legendary chef, was at the launch of the £180m Sofitel London Heathrow hotel at Terminal 5 yesterday.
Roux, who with his brother Michel received the one off Silver Catey earlier this month, had his first glimpse of the new Brasserie Roux, the 100-seat restaurant that opens at the new property in September.
The hotel, the only one within the Terminal 5 complex, has 605-bedrooms with interiors designed by Khuan Chew, whose credits include Dubai's Burj al Arab.
