Marcus Eaves leaves Pied à Terre for Oblix

Marcus Eaves is to leave the Michelin-starred Pied à Terre to become executive chef at Oblix in London.

Eaves will take up his new role at the restaurant, which sits on the 32nd floor of Europe's tallest building, the Shard, on 15 September.

The chef gained his first Michelin star at the age of just 27, 14 months after opening the doors of Pied à Terre's sister restaurant L'Autre Pied in 2007.

He began his professional career in Simpsons in Kenilworth under Andreas Antona, rising to sous chef. He then spent four years working for the likes of Martin Blunos at Lettonie in Bath, John Burton-Race at the Landmark hotel, Shane Osborn at Pied à Terre in London and Claude Bosi at Hibiscus in Ludlow.

In 2004, during his time with Bosi, he won Midlands Young Chef of the Year and The Gordon Ramsay Scholar Award.

Speaking about Eaves's departure, Pied à Terre owner David Moore wished him luck with the challenges and opportunities he would face in his new role.

It is not known at this stage who will replace Eaves.

Eaves said: "After an amazing 10 years within the company I feel it's the perfect time to take on a new challenge. I have learnt a huge amount during my time at Pied à Terre and am incredibly proud of everything we've achieved together."

Oblix, founded by chef Rainer Becker, offers an urban casual dining menu with dishes from the spit roast, charcoal grill and wood-fired ovens.

Opened in partnership with Arjun Waney (of Zuma and Roka fame) in 2013, Oblix marked a departure from Japanese fare for the duo.

The restaurant has 100 covers, with a 100-cover cocktail and lounge bar attached.

Speaking about joining Oblix, Eaves added: ""I am really looking forward to working with Rainer and the team at Oblix. Can't wait too to be in a kitchen with what must be the best view in London".
