Albert Roux restaurant plans in Essex recommended for approval

Albert Roux's plans to transform the old Post Office in Brentwood, Essex, into a restaurant have been recommended for approval by Brentwood Borough Council.

The legendary chef is hoping to install French doors and larger windows to the building, and will also need a change of use approval to use the building as a restaurant, according to local newspaper the Brentwood Gazette.

It will reportedly employ 32 staff when open and provide 180 covers per day, while Albert Roux and his son Michel Roux Jr are expected to visit regularly.

Albert Roux is part of the Roux family culinary empire, which includes Michel Roux Sr and his son Alain, with restaurants including Le Gavroche in London, and the Waterside Inn in Bray.
