Philip Howard and Rebecca Mascarenhas to open joint restaurant

Michelin-starred chef Philip Howard is set to open a new restaurant in partnership with London restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas, Caterersearch has learnt.

Howard, who is head chef and co-owner (with Nigel Platts-Martin) of the two-Michelin-starred The Square restaurant in Mayfair, will launch the new venture in the autumn.

It will be an informal neighbourhood restaurant housed in the former site of Mascarenhas' Bistrot Eleven (previously Abingdon Road) in Kensington, which closed today.

The yet-to-be-named eatery is a partnership between the chef and Mascarenhas, owner of London neighbourhood restaurants Sonny's in Barnes and the Phoenix in Putney.

However, Howard will continue to oversee the day-to-day running of The Square, where he has been chef-proprietor since its launch in 1991.

Mascarenhas told Caterersearch: "Phil Howard is a fantastic chef and I am delighted to be involved in a partnership with him. We are both looking forward to creating an informal restaurant in Kensington, a neighbourhood that we both know well."
