Tim Peirson has been appointed head chef at D&D London restaurant Kensington Place.
Peirson joins the Notting Hill fish-centric brasserie from a career including the Michelin-starred Angler restaurant in Moorgate, London; private dining and event space Axis at One Aldwych, and the Wild Honey restaurant in Mayfair.
He has created a new menu that will seek to use the best, seasonal British fish and seafood, presenting them in his signature clean way.
The new crustacea market menu will offer a selection of lobster, langoustine, and dressed crab, with new typical dishes set to include Devon crab Caesar salad; Cornish mackerel ceviche with wasabi mayonnaise; fillet of sea bream with orange braised fennel; roast Cornish cod with pea and bacon fricassee; smoked haddock fishcake; and for dessert, vanilla panna cotta with English strawberries and basil.
Commenting on his new role, Peirson said: "I am really excited to be taking the reins at such an iconic restaurant as Kensington Place. Over the next few months, I'll be putting my stamp on the menu and hoping to embark on a new era."
