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.
