Jason and Irha Atherton have appointed Frankie van Loo as head chef at Hai Cenato in London Victoria and Marcus Rohlen as head chef at Social Wine & Tapas in Marylebone.
Rohlen started his career in London with Richard Corrigan at the Michelin-starred Lindsay House in Soho and Bentley's Oyster Bar & Grill in Mayfair.
In 2009 he was promoted to sous chef at Corrigan's Mayfair, where he worked with Dale Bainbridge, who is now head chef at Jason Atherton's Pollen Street Social in Mayfair.
In 2012, Rohlen took on the role of junior sous chef at Pollen Street Social. He is now head chef at Social Wine and Tapas, taking over from Frankie van Loo.
Van Loo began working for the Social company in 2011, where he was chef de partie at Pollen Street Social. Two years later he was made sous chef at Michelin-starred Social Eating House in Soho under Paul Hood.
Until taking up his new role at Hai Cenato, Atherton's latest restaurant, Van Loo was head chef at Social Wine & Tapas.
Atherton said: "Marcus has been my senior sous at Pollen Street Social for the past five years, and now he's running his own kitchen. It's an amazing step forward for him, and already his menu changes have been fantastic. I am very proud."
