Eric Chavot to open new London restaurant

Former two-Michelin-starred chef Eric Chavot has returned to London and is opening a new restaurant in Mayfair next January, it has been confirmed.

The chef, who spent 10 years at the Capital in Knightsbridge, will open Brasserie Chavot in mid-January. The 70-seat restaurant will be housed in the Gallery next to the Westbury hotel, which was previously occupied by the Connolly shop on Conduit Street.

The dining room will feature banquette seating as well as a bar at the back of the room, where seafood and charcuterie will be served.

Speaking exclusively to Caterer and Hotelkeeper, Chavot said the menu would showcase the "terroirs around France".

"The menu will be classic in its ideas but with a contemporary touch," he said. "We'll have king crab with mayonnaise, oysters with a little crépinette, and a basket of deep-fried soft shell crab."

Chavot added: "What's most important is that it will be excellent value for money. We're looking at around £35/£40 for lunch and £55 for dinner."

Chavot, who left the Capital in 2009, has returned to London following a two-year stint with the Weston family at the Windsor Club in Florida. Prior to the Capital, he was at Chavot in Fulham and Interlude de Chavot on Charlotte Street.

Details of menu, reservations number, website and precise opening date will be available from early December.
