Ollie Couillaud to open London restaurant and deli

Ollie Couillaud, until recently the chef-patron of Bord'eaux, the all-day French brasserie at London's Grosvenor House hotel, plans to open a restaurant and delicatessen in south-west London.

He is currently looking for a site and has financial backing in place. In the meantime, he has launched Sunshine Food, a private dinner party and personal catering tuition service.

"We already have bookings for April and May and initially I shall be working in private home in Wimbledon, Fulham, Chelsea, Battersea and Clapham," he said.

"I will cook whatever clients ask me to cook, but will specialise in the French food I cooked at Bord'eaux. The idea is that we will link together the private catering with the restaurant, once it opens."

Prior to the two years he spent at Bord'eaux, Couillaud worked as head chef at Tom Aiken's Tom's Kitchen and as head chef at La Trompette in Chiswick.

Bord'eaux has now closed at Grosvenor House and will soon reopen as a JW Marriott Steakhouse.
