Chef Richard Neat returns to Pied à Terre

Chef Richard Neat is returning to Pied à Terre for one week only to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Neat was the restaurant's founding partner. On 5-10 September he will return to put on a seven-course lunch tasting menu and 10-course dinner tasting menu.

The Michelin-starred restaurant was established in 1991 under the guidance of founding director David Moore.

Moore said: "We are thrilled to have Richard return to Pied à Terre and showcase the food that he was cooking over 20 years ago."

Neat has worked with Raymond Blanc, Marco Pierre White and Joel Robuchon. Soon after receiving a second Michelin star at Pied à Terre in 1996, he left the London restaurant scene to establish the Longchamp restaurant at the Taj Mahal hotel in New Delhi.

In 1999 he returned to Europe to set up the Neat restaurants in Cannes and London, both of which closed unexpectedly in 2002. Neat took on Casa Lalla, a restaurant with rooms in Marrakech, in 2004, and since 2006 has been the head chef of the Park Café in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Current Pied à Terre head chef Andy McFadden joined the restaurant in October 2015, having previously been in charge of Pied à Terre's sister restaurant L'Autre Pied.
