Dale Sutton appointed head chef of Frenchie Covent Garden

Dale Sutton has arrived in London as head chef of Frenchie Covent Garden following three years as executive group sous chef across the brand's three Paris sites.

Prior to joining Gregory Marchand's Frenchie group, Australian-born Sutton spent a year at David Chang's Momofuku Seiobo as junior sous chef.

Daniele Codini was previously head chef at Frenchie Covent Garden between February and November 2017, leaving to take up the position of head chef at the Ned hotel's private members' club restaurant.

Sutton said: "Working with Greg and the rest of the Frenchie family in Paris has been an incredible experience and I'm excited to continue this journey here in London. The Frenchie brand is as international as they come, with influences in the offering from all over the world.

"At the core of the offering, however, there is of course that little spark of Parisian know-how. I'm excited to use my experience to bring a bit more of that to customers in London at Frenchie Covent Garden."

French chef Marchand launched the first Frenchie on Rue de Nil in 2009 and opened the London outpost in 2016. Cyril Baligand was appointed general manager of the London site last month.
