French chef Eric Chavot looking to open informal brasserie next year

French chef Eric Chavot wants to launch an informal brasserie next year, Caterer can reveal.

Chavot, who left his role of head chef at the two-Michelin-starred Capital after more than decade earlier this year, said he wanted to launch a new venture that had "nothing to do with Michelin".

"It's still early days but I want to launch a more informal restaurant next year, a brasserie or bistrot de luxe," he said.

Chavot, who is looking for an investor to go into business with, added that the new venture would be a simple restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere but great service.

"It will be a restaurant version of Le Pain Quotidien and it will feature large tables and an open kitchen," he said.
